Larson: Sorum displays breezy, fun style when sun sizzles

FARGO – In the dog days of summer, it can be difficult to look pretty and breezy, but Alissa Sorum accomplished it on a 90-degree day.

I spotted Alissa, marketing director for West Acres, on Second Avenue in downtown Fargo while she was shopping with her sister. Her green dress and fabulous accessories stood out in the downtown sidewalk traffic.

What are you wearing? Green dress from Forever 21, flats from Macys, bag and watch by Michael Kors, belt, necklace and earrings from The Limited and Ray-Ban sunglasses.

How would you describe your style? Trendy and comfortable. I also like to wear transitional things that can go from season to season – it’s recycling.

Do you have a style philosophy? I wear what I feel comfortable in. It’s also important to find colors and styles that flatter your body.

Does your job influence your style? Definitely – I’m always reading about the latest trends.

What fall trend are you most excited about? I’m loving color for fall. Usually fall is very neutral, but this year, pieces like colored denim are big.

What is your most essential accessory? My watch. I love Michael Kors for accessories, and Forever 21 has fun finds.

Does traveling influence your style at all? I was in London last fall, and each neighborhood has its own style. Traveling exposes you to different trends that might not show up here until a year or two later.
