Poised, classic and fun are the perfect words to describe April Butler. This 19 year old college student brings a care-free attitude and a fun-loving heart into everything she does, including her style. While attending Western Kentucky University you can spot April hitting the golf course (as she plays for WKU) or hitting the books. No matter what her setting, expect her style to always be put together.
How would you describe your everyday style?
I have always wanted my everyday style to look effortless. I like wearing a lot of dresses and skirts and I want to feel as though I can just throw something on. I really like to think of my everyday style as girly and feminine with a little bit of an edge but not trying to be straight out sexy.
Are there any celebrities or stores that you particularly watch when it comes to fashion?
I don’t really have one particular influence on my style. I like to think that if I like something I’ll buy it regardless of where it’s from and as long as it’s not too pricey. Forever 21, though a little cliché, usually has a lot of great styles and clothes and they’re not too expensive. I can generally get style ideas from going through all of their different styles of clothes.
Lets talk about the shoes; what drew them you to them?
Honestly, the sparkly flashy shoes are not something that I would generally go for or consider them to be ‘my style.’ But something about them gave that girly and feminine quality I explained before, and I felt like I could try to pair them with some cute dresses and it would add a little flash and edge to my outfit.
Do you normally follow trends? If so what are your favorite trends for this summer season?
Trends usually give me some ideas that I can work into my outfits and style. This summer I like the looser shorter tops, (the ones that aren’t crop tops but are a little shorter than regular tops) paired with a cute skirt or pair of shorts. It again feels effortless and seems to be a relaxed summer style. I also like tank tops tucked into a simple or cute skirt and it gives a girly but more dressed up feel to it.
What kind of style tips could you give readers who like to stay active?
In my golf outfits, even when they’re not the cutest ( like having to wear a golf short, golf skort, hat, etc) I always try to add a little girly touch to my outfit. A lot of times I will tie a ribbon in my ponytail that coordinates with my golf shirt, or sometimes I add a braid or put in a cute pair of stud earrings. I feel like it is enough to express your own sense of style while still sticking with the uniform or still being on active clothes.April Butler, fashion
