Caroline’s Style Star of the Week

This week, I interviewed Marisa Kaplan, Franklin and Marshall College’s HerCampus Style Star of the week. Marisa is 19, from right outside Philadelphia, and is my good friend and roommate. She is a psychology and theater double major, and a fashionista.

 1. Hi Marisa! In a few words, how would you describe your fashion style?

I would say that my style is a combination of edgy, daring, vintage and the occasional bohemian.

2. Where do you usually shop?

Many of my items come from local stores back home. I like finding items that are different and that no one else I know owns something like them. I also frequent Forever 21, Urban Outfitters and Free People.

3. What decades influence your fashion choices?

I would say that the biggest decades that influence my choices are the 60s-80s. I own a lot of high-waisted floral pants. One of my favorite pieces is a kimono shirt with fringe which screams 60s, hence the reason why I bought it! I am also slightly obsessed with the 80s. I have a pair of bright green pants, where at first glance seem like they are un-wearable, but I took the challenge and they have become one of my favorite pants. Another 80s inspired piece is my pair of blue crushed velvet pants. Again pretty daring because I know no one who owns them but that’s one of the reasons why I bought them. I like the unusual when it comes to clothing.

4. What do you think makes you Her Campus’s Fashion Star of the week?

I think it’s because I don’t follow trends, I break the rules and pull them off!

I had a lot fun going through Marisa’s wardrobe with her, and picking out three amazing outfits. Check out what she wore!
