Jen Sopitarchasak looked cute and polished on a rainy day while wearing a pair of classic Hunter rain boots in black, dark opaque tights from Korea, brown khaki shorts purchased in Thailand, and a gray pinstriped button-down from ExpressHer accessories include a pair of multi-colored bejeweled earrings and a funky Buddha necklace from Thailand. This graduate student gathers her inspiration from Elle and an array of Japanese fashion magazines and says she likes to shop at stores like Urban Outfitters, J. Crew, and Banana Republic for her wardrobe. She likes Urban because of its fun finds, and J.Crew and Banana Republic because they have a dressier selection. “My style is comfortable. I like neutral colors, and stuff that is not too busy,” Sopitarchasak said. We then asked her what trends she is looking forward to wearing this summer. “What I like right now is the maxi-dress.” Us too.
