Passing Fashion: Meaghan

Comfort, meet style.

Meaghan, a U Albany Student from Saratoga.

On Broadway in Saratoga.

Where'd you get this great outfit?
I got the dress at Old Navy last year. The sweater is from Express.
I love it because it's so comfortable. It feels like I'm not wearing clothes.

How would you describe your style?
Cute and sexy -- but not trashy.

My clothes have to be comfortable. Comfort is VERY important. I always wear cotton.

Favorite shopping spots?
I'll shop anywhere. This purse is from a thrift shop. I love the boutiques in Saratoga. Anyplace where they sell interesting or unique clothing so I won't look like everyone else.

AOA's take:
Baby doll dresses are tough to pull off without looking -- um -- expectant. But Meaghan does it beautifully. And in pink, too. (Our pic doesn't do her justice.) The key here is the sweater. The way it tapers in makes it clear that Megan isn't carrying anything but a great sense of style.


Ummm - sorry but the wrinkly cotton dress is undeserving of a fashion thumbs-up. I am all for looking unique, wearing natural fiber, expressing your own style, etc. But this young lady looks like she threw a cardigan over her nightgown.

I fault Old Navy, Target and other affordable retailers who use skimpy fabrics that don't hold up well in the wash. Those same fabrics tend to look slept in after just a short time of wear.

Yeah, I actually have to agree with above comment on this one. That sort of A-line scoop neck dress would either look better chopped into a tunic tank with some denim shorts and a hangy necklace, or maybe in a black cotton modal re-do with a bright berry blue cardigan. Her smile is amazing though, so that totally wins a spot for best accessory. What's fashion without excitement, anyway?

i partially disagree. she looks cute. i dont like the shoes but i love the cardigan and i hate to say it, but wrinkles arent a fashion issue. the "worn" look is actually big right now. is shows "less effort" which is basically 'oh this old thing? i just threw this on' if you catch my drift. but if that is the case, then yes, she looks cute. but she is also in definate need of a necklace or at lease some big unnecessary earings and a bangle
