College Street Style: Chloe Shostak
With the fog rolling in, the reality of the gray days here in Oregon are becoming more of a reality.
I knew this day would come, but I was hoping to postpone it for as long as possible.
But when I saw Chloe wearing a pair of shorts, it gave me hope that maybe the sun would stick around a while longer.
Or at least we could all have some wishful thinking.
Because after all, who doesn’t like that?!
Get the low down…
Name: Chloe Shostak
Major: Major in Studio Arts with a Minor in Fashion
Hobbies: “I love being outside–bike riding, swimming, or hiking. I also love to read and to draw. Mostly I love to laugh.”
Who or what inspires you? “I’m inspired by the world around me whether it be the beautiful natural life or different cultures from around the world.”
Where do you like to shop? “I don’t have a specific place or places I love to shop. I mostly just am always looking for that piece that really draws my attention, and that piece could be anywhere. It could be a thrift store, my mom’s closet, Anthroplogie, Forever 21, Target — just anywhere. But I always love a good deal!”
Tell me about your outfit. Where is it from? “My outfit is from a bunch of different places. The sweater used to be my great aunt’s from the 1950′s. The shirt is from Free People and the shorts are from Madewell. The shoes are from Target.”
How would you describe your personal style? “My personal style is really just whatever I’m in the mood for. There are days I feel fancy… There are days that I feel grungy, and that is exactly how I convey myself to the world through dress. I can’t say that I have pinpointed an exact style because so many types inspire me.”
Why did you choose this outfit? “I chose this outfit because I really like the golden yellow and the light blue together. As for the shorts, there are just days when I really want to wear shorts–even if it is really cold!”
Who are your favorite designers? “My favorite designers are Mara Hoffman for her fantastic mix of prints and Elie Saab because I think he has exquisitely simple designs that are beautifully embellished.”
Any favorite trends? “I can’t recall any favorite trends. I just see what’s out there and do it if I like it.”
If you could raid anyone’s closet who’s would it be? “I would raid… Audrey Hepburn’s closet. So simple and so classy and so much Givenchy! I would also raid an Indian woman’s closet. Is that weird? The saris are just too wonderfully colorful!”
These boots have some attitude to them.
They aren’t your mom’s old boots.
They sort of have a cowgirl vibe with some edge.
The Cardigan, Shirt and Shorts
So her awesome cardigan caught my attention with the awesome detailing.
The gems give it a playful touch and really give it a unique feel.
I don’t know anyone else who has that cardigan.
I am a fan of the golden yellow color. Really fun for Fall.
And did I say it was vintage? How cool!
Straight from the 1950′s. So classic.
The cardigan is a great layering piece over the stripped top.
Stripes are always a good choice in my book.
You can pair stripes with solid colors and add some pattern to your look.
The frayed denim shorts give it a relaxed feel; and denim goes with anything.
Chloe says her style is whatever she is in the mood for that day; and I think this day she rocked it.
Super fun colors, prints, and jewels.
You can’t go wrong with jewels.
I want to go out and find my embellished cardigan.
Or I’ll just go buy a plain one and bedazzle it myself.
Bedazzle…such a great word.
It’s Friday, don’t do homework, go get crafty.
Stay stylish and stuff like that.
