Fashionista Spotlight: Kim Kovach
May 18, 2011
Emmalee Poprock

This is my first time breaking away from my normal Style Advice of the Week, and presenting a Fashionista Spotlight. I am so excited to put a name to a face to one of the Fashionistas here at Kent State University. This Fashionista caught my eye in my Programming for Electronic Media class and is in my opinion one of the most fashionable people I have seen on the Kent Campus.

Name: Kim Kovach
Major: Electronic Media ProductionYear: Junior

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your personal style?

Kim Kovach: I'm all about vintage styles and items inspired by nature. If I had to give my style a name, it'd probably be "Leather & Lace" ... with a hefty helping of floral prints as well. The majority of my closet is tan/peach/mauve and almost all my shoes are brown leather boots/sandals/oxfords. I love high-waisted shorts and skirts, in addition to dresses with a cinch at the midriff... and I pretty much wear a cardigan with every outfit.

CF: Where do you pull your inspiration from?

KK: As far as inspiration for clothing, I really just shop around different places looking for stuff that catches my eye... sometimes in person (shops like H&M, Forever21, and a little boutique called Noto), but especially online my favorites are Modcloth.com and Threadsence.com. Sometimes I pull ideas from movies and I totally try to have Zooey Deschanel's hair. And as far as jewelry, I definitely get my inspiration from nature. I make my own jewelry ("Kim Kovach's Handmade Jewelry" on Facebook) and I use mostly earthy & vintage things like feathers, cameos, leather, wood, and pearls... I always wear a good amount of jewelry - I just love it!

CF: Going into summer. What trends do you see popping up?

KK: This is finally going to be the summer of high-waisted shorts. Last summer it started popping up a bit, but I really think this summer will have a lot of mainstream brands carrying shorts/skirts with a high waist and I am stoked!. Also, of course, floral prints, lace, and pearls... if possible, all three simultaneously!

How To: Want a look like today’s Fashionista, here’s how! Start out with a great blazer like the Poets Society Blazer from Modcloth. Then pair with a dress like this one from Forever 21 and these riding boots from Zappos. For jewelry like today's Fashionista you can get the jewelry that this fashionista designs, just visit the Facebook page.

Style On,

Emmalee Poprock
