Campus Couture: Kelsey, Lakehead
[While everyone is fabulous in their own right, we thought we should celebrate the campus fashionistas of the world for their continued excellence in not looking like a hot mess for class. So, we started stalking those girls on campus (remember how chic Brooklyn from Drake was??) to get a few pics and get some tips on their personal style.... And maybe a restraining order or two.
But it’s worth it to highlight fresh, unique wardrobe choices that show personality and the courage to wear what you believe in. You think you’ve got some major style? Know someone else who’s always looking ferosh? Think the world needs to see what she can do? Send us an email with some photos and she could be the next fashionista celebrated right here.]
In Northern Ontario, our spring climate is slightly unpredictable. A few weeks ago it seriously went from beautiful sun to snow on the ground in 3 days. So the college girls up here have to be prepared and equipped; fun, warm-weather outfits must be on call! When my friend Kelsey was sporting this chic, summery look, I knew I had to feature her on Campus Couture.
Now, you can tell from the picture that Kelsey could be a model. She’s tall, skinny and gorgeous and is constantly turning heads. With her figure, she can also pull off pretty much anything (JEALOUS). Every single time a new trend comes out, I see Kelsey sporting it, looking like she just came off the runway. I mean, the girl has been wearing jeggings (jean leggings) since December and I only just picked up a pair! In this look she’s rocking some fabulous English florals, in the form of shorts no less, and her ankle-cuff flats are so hot for summer. Even her headband and earrings match, both featuring tiny white flowers. Kelsey looks like a Coachella-bound supermodel, instead of a student on her way to class. And if that’s not something to celebrate, I don’t know what is.

1. Describe your personal style.
Two words: flirty and fun. I like to look good, but also be able to have fun and play around in my clothes. I’m definitely not someone who would buy a pair of shoes I couldn’t dance in.
2. I can’t leave my house without:
One of my Coach purses.
3. What is your favorite store to shop at?
Probably Urban Outfitters and Charlotte Russe. Urban Outfitters always has fun, quirky stuff and Charlotte Russe keeps up with the trends but at really cheap prices. I can buy a trendy piece and only wear it a couple times without feeling like it’s a waste!
4. What/who is the biggest influence on your style?
I take cues from shows like Gossip Girl. The stylists are just so spot on and I love that they feature chic winter outfits for us Northern girls.
5. What’s your favorite trend, past or present?
High-waisted bottoms! All winter I rocked a blue, sequined high-waisted skirt and loved it!
