JK: How would you describe your style?
AW: I try to dress for business all the time. I’m really into networking, so I always like to be prepared for that. I also try to dress as classy as I can. I get most of my fashion ideas from Pinterest.

JK: What are your favorite fashion trends?
AW: I love bright skirts and scarves. I like mixing a neutral tone with a bright bottom. I also love the wide ankle boots.

JK: How do you shop on a college student’s budget?
AW: I always do outlet stores and clearance racks, and also consignment shops. I also ‘shop’ in my friends’ closets.

JK: Do you have anything that you’ve regretted wearing?
AW: Being in theatre, there have been a lot of things I’ve worn that I haven’t been fond of. I’ve often bought things on a whim and thought, “Why did I buy this? I’m only going to wear this once!” I often regret jeans—I prefer a skirt or a dress every day. I can’t do really light colors; I’ve never worn pink in my life, but I’m going to be in a wedding this summer and my bridesmaid’s dress will be pink, so that will be an adventure.

JK: What was the worst costume you’ve worn for a play?
AW: One of the plays I did at the end of high school—I had to be a newly pregnant woman, so I wore a kind of fat suit. That’s probably the thing that I’ve least enjoyed wearing in my entire life.

JK: Do you have any fashion inspirations?
AW: Audrey Hepburn and Anne Hathaway. Basically anyone who’s super pale and has dark hair. I think I have a pretty set style and just kind of go with it. When I see people on campus wearing something cute, I’ll try to recreate it a week later with my own wardrobe.

JK: Do you have any fashion advice for the readers?
AW: Outlet stores can be your best friends—there are a lot of great ones in the area. Also, don’t be afraid to share clothes with your friends, because they can have things they’re sick of and it’s brand new to you. Also, I would suggest always dressing classy because you never know when a business
