This week, I interviewed junior biology major Jasmine Muniz-Cadorette on spring style.
Let’s start off with where you shop. What are some of your go-to stores?
JM: I like to shop at stores that provide high quality clothing for reasonable prices. A few of my favorites are J. Crew, Banana Republic, Urban Outfitters and Zara.
Do you have any celebrity influences that you look to for style inspiration?
JM: Yes, I love Jessica Alba’s style — she has the perfect balance between classic elegance and current flare. I also look toward Angelina Jolie for inspiration. I think there is something to be said for women who can be fashion forward while still presenting themselves with class and poise.
What is your favorite thing about dressing for the spring season?
JM: It’s so refreshing to mirror the new spring colors outside in my wardrobe through a brighter color pallet. Also, I’m so glad that I no longer have to cover up my outfit choices with a bulky winter coat.
What is your favorite accessory that you absolutely can’t live without?
JM: My ring. I got this simple silver ring from Green Street Consignment in Princeton and I wear it every day. It’s such a great place to find unique high quality jewelry that doesn’t tarnish.
How would you describe your personal style?
JM: I would say my style is very versatile. I don’t stick to just one look. It’s all about experimenting with different textures and patterns, but at the same time keeping it classic and simple.
What is your best shopping advice?
JM: Comfort is key to being confident in your clothes. You want to choose classic pieces that are higher in quality so they will last you a long time. Quality over quantity is definitely the way to go.
What is your biggest fashion pet peeve?
JM: When people are wearing things that don’t fit them. One of the most important elements of dressing well is making sure that your clothes are tailored to your body.
