Campus Style: Katie McNabb is cute, comfy in bright red maxi skirt
Katie’s simple, colorful look gives off an effortless, bohemian vibe.
Fall may be upon us, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to retire the maxi skirt. Flowy, bright pieces, such as McNabb’s skirt, are perfect transitional pieces from summer to fall. (Not to mention they are super comfortable!) When the weather starts to turn, McNabb can simply throw on a leather or denim jacket for a complete fall look.

What are you wearing? My skirt is Harper & Gray. It’s such a fun piece because I can wear it so many ways. The top is from Belk and is very light and comfy. Oh, and my watch is Michael Kors!

How do you dress comfortably and stylishly? Is it hard to be stylish and comfortable on campus? I stick to pieces that are flowy and light. Skirts are my go to; they are just so comfortable! Other than that, I love to put on my favorite pair of jeans and a flowy top. I always try to buy pieces I can dress up or down. Versatility is what my wardrobe is all about! I don’t find it hard to be both [comfortable and stylish] – I want people to see my personality in my style. It makes putting outfits together all the more fun!
Where do you like to shop? Everywhere!! Online shopping is so much fun because you aren’t limited to local stores. I love going to places like Belk where I have lots of options. Cute boutiques are my guilty pleasure, if you haven’t been to Elle Boutique on Bearden Hill you need to check it out.
Where do you find inspiration? I love following all sorts of fashion blogs. I piece together my favorite looks to create my outfits!
