Style Spotter: Ricki Faust

Ricki+Faust
Ricki Faust

Ricki Faust was spotted rocking her eclectic outfit while working in her Campus Center office. Her tribal top was in perfect contrast with her solid black slacks, giving a fashionable twist to ordinary office attire.
Faust, who described her style as “money-saver classy,” bought her tan, fringed, tribal-patterned top at Marshalls, her black slacks at Macy’s, her black flats from H&M, and, as for her brown peacoat, it was given to her as a gift. 
It is no surprise Faust turns to two other office-wear professionals for style inspiration. One is her co-worker, Winston Pierre, who was a previous feature on Style Spotter, and Kerry Washington, who Faust strives to be but “on a cheaper scale.” Who can ignore her character on Scandal, when her attire is always on point?
For fashion advice, Faust speaks to the hearts of college students, “shop at your level. Don’t break the bank to impress others.”
