Haute at GCC: Spring Ready

“You never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny. And it’s best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.” -Coco Chanel

Everyday college, everyday clothes. It’s often hard to be the best version of yourself, but this does not mean that you should give up on dressing up. There are a lot of ways to look as good as possible without trying too hard.

Don’t forget about the shoes, though!  “Shoes transform your body language and attitude. They lift you physically and emotionally,” a French fashion designer who established distinguished shoe brand, Christian Louboutin said.

Many people choose the shoes they put on as an afterthought. But shoes are the most important item in an outfit. Shoes control the total coordinate.

Nathasha Fields, a 24-year-old female student and nursing major, shared her ideas about footwear. She likes shoes and thinks they’re the most significant element in fashion. She has about 200 pairs of shoes.

People might choose a pair of sneakers if it’s raining. Fields is different. Even though it was a rainy day in March, she had her own style perfectly put together.

She chose a pair of Timberland boots. They would not get wet easily, kept her feet warm, and more importantly, they were fashionable. She doesn’t abandon her style even in the rain.

There is another point that makes her fashion savvy.

Because her favorite color is black, most of her clothes are black, too.

But, she often picks different colors to complement it. Red, which Louboutin himself has spearheaded, is perfect. Under her black sweater, Fields wraps a red shirt around her chest. The red one makes her style original and edgy.

Jocelaine Coutinho, a 20-year-old female student and a business major, adopts her home country’s mood in her fashion. Red tropical birds printed on a cream color shirt is her choice this time. She brought the one she’s wearing from her homeland, Brazil.

She likes K-POP culture, so her hairstyle is inspired by that. She is proud of her native country and expresses it in her fashion. She makes it her own style.

The eyeglasses also brighten her. She says it is part of fashion. Everything that people have on can be fashion highlights. She loves to put herself in vintage style like her glasses.

Beautiful, cool, and sexy. These words don’t exist only for good-looking men and women. People can be valued by the way of expressing themselves and the idea that they have. Those their mind reveals themselves in their fashion.
