Upon seeing a girl like Blair Lenz, you instantly wish that you would have dressed up a little bit more before you left for class that day. After having lecture with her all year long, I can say with utmost certainty that Blair is the kind of fashionista that never takes a day off. She is a true girly-girl, who prefers dresses over jeans, eye-catching totes over backpacks, and chicness over comfort. To say that her personal style is “trendy” definitely captures the fashion sense of this UW freshman.
“Trendy” also epitomizes the style of one of Blair’s icons, Blake Lively, who has wowed designers, fans, and fashion personnel around the world. However, she also finds inspiration from the Duchess of Cambridge herself and Audrey Hepburn—two women who are known by all to be très “chic.” With these famous fashion icons as her muses and her uncanny ability to add her own flair to every outfit she wears, Blain can be an inspiration to fashionistas all over campus as she proves that dressing up a little can go a long way.
