Yaisani Namvong, sophomore merchandising major and media studies minor at Colorado State University, likes to mimic a New York City style â€œwhile adding a Colorado touch.â€
She wears a cream crochet cardigan purchased from Forever 21 for $24, a black J. Crew tank top that was about $12, and a purple lace skirt, also from Forever 21 at a cost of $4.
Namvongâ€™s black sweater tights came from Target for $10 and her navy blue Hunter boots cap off the look at $125.
She describes her personal style as neutral.
â€œI donâ€™t like to be loud with my clothes, I enjoy mute colors, nothing too bright or glitzy,â€ Namvong said. â€œI donâ€™t wear too much patterns, mostly simple, neutral colored clothing.â€
â€œAs for jewelry,â€ Namvong said, â€œa simple menâ€™s looking watch is all you need I think.â€
Namvong also models her outfits around the unpredictable Colorado weather.
â€œI like to layer a lot of clothes for warmth,â€ she said. â€œI love boots! I wear everything with boots!â€
Namvong said she does not have one specific favorite store, but rather likes to â€œroam wherever they have cute clothesâ€ at the mall. She also currently enjoys shopping online at websites such as piperlime.com.
Namvong draws inspiration for the way she dresses from celebrity style icons.
â€œI am really inspired by my style icons Olivia Palermo and Rachel Bilson,â€ Namvong said.
Palermo is known as a New York City socialite and fashionista, and was featured on the MTV reality show â€œThe City.â€ Bilson is a movie actress currently living in Los Angeles.
â€œOlivia Palermo lives in New York City so a lot of her clothes are also layered,â€ Namvong said, â€œwhich makes it easy for me to kind of mimic her style while adding a Colorado touch.â€
