Sidewalk Style: Concert Ready
This week, we stop a student on the Mall in a seasonally appropriate concert ensemble.
Katie Nash, 22
Student, University of Maryland
What she’s wearing: “Actually, it’s all from H&M!” The sandals were a recent purchase from Target.
So you must be an H&M fan. “It’s cheap and fashionable. I’m a college student, so it’d be tough to shop anywhere else.”
Tell me about your style. “Laid-back, earthy. I don’t like to throw a bunch of trends on all at once. I’m not big on heels and super-short miniskirts.”
Favorite things in your closet? “My tall Minnetonka boots with layered tassels. They’re all worn in; they’re my go-to boots. And pair of acid-wash skinny jeans.”
What will you be wearing this summer? “I’m a big dress fan. The long, flowing Maxi style is my thing.”
Rachel says: I’m not making any argument here that Katie’s look is revolutionary (can we all agree, though, that her hair is completely amazing?). But quite simply, Katie’s outfit struck me as just the right sort of thing to wear to a live show on a spring day. Light, loose layers, flat shoes, and a cross-body bag are all good ideas for a concert.
