With the cool, winter Miami weather finally starting to set in, we’re getting pretty excited to start a solid collection of seasonal looks, which leads me to introduce junior Alison Patino. While she keeps it simple with black leggings and a neutral v-neck, this business law and management double major showed us that black is always the new black with her stand-out statement pieces. Accessorizing with an edgy Balenciaga, Alison complements her moody style with cat-eyed Miu Miu glasses and zipper detailed knee high boots from NastyGal. Who would have known our fashionista was a Miami native? Alison masters Upper East Side street style. Usually mixing up different accessories with her black staples, she adds winter favorites like scarves and boots to layer despite the heat. Alison checks out different celebrity styles on Singer 22 and uses the website to get an idea on upcoming trends. With just the right amount of ‘tude to make you do a double take, Alison is well-deserving of her spot on UMiamiMode.
