Mariah Jennings, 21, embraces her age in a style that's "trendy and youthful," as she displays at The African American Festival. The Avenue sales associate starts with a hue of the season's hot color orange, with her pumpkin cropped tank from Forever 21. The Chase resident added another strong trend, the stretch pencil skirt -- this one a cream and black striped number from H&M. She added a multi-metal braided chain necklace from Avenue, matte gold flat sandals from Forever 21, and an orange straw fedora that she bought at the festival. Her collection of bracelets include a tiger-striped bangle from Wet Seal and a fuzzy taupe bangle from Body Central. Her copper hoop earrings are from Forever 21. Some of the current trends that are particular favorites these days? "I like [to mix] a lot of fun patterns. I always go for a pop of neon. And pencil skirts; I love pencil skirts."
