It is my final week as a Style Guru and as they say, all good things have to come to a close at some point. After a successful semester of photographing and interviewing my peers, I can confidentially say my awareness and enjoyment of fashion trends has greatly increased. Every week I come across people with unique styles that really blow me away as I see how much care and effort they put into how they look. It is always refreshing to meet students who take pride in who they are and the features they have. This Fashionista is a great example of a student whose style makes her glow.
Name: Eva Moss
Major: Linguistics (minor in Spanish)
CollegeFashionista: What does it mean to you to be stylish?
Eva Moss: Being stylish to me means that you can dress accordingly with your personality. You can express who you are with the colors and designs you like and really make yourself an individual.
CF: What makes your style unique?
EM: My style is certainly eclectic. I love wearing vintage style clothing and accessories that are eco-friendly and/or come from various organizations that give back to society. For example, my earrings are from Enactus. I also love wearing different hues of lipstick to go with my outfits.
CF: What are some of your favorite complements to an outfit?
EM: I really like beaded jewelry, gemstone rings, stone necklaces and beanies. In terms of makeup, I love to wear glittered liquid eyeliners along with nude tones. The combination neutralizes everything and makes eyes stand out!
CF: What style advice do you have for other fashion enthusiasts?
EM: Don’t try to blend in with the crowd. If you see something that you like at a store or magazine that really appeals to you, go for it and make a statement.
How To: Bundling up for the cold weather while still looking chic is not as hard of a task as it seems. Comfy sweaters, leg warmers, and boots can do the trick. A sweater jacket like the one this Fashionista is wearing can be bought at Kohl’s. In addition, take a look at this beautiful pair of leg warmers from Etsy. Also, the right makeup can dress up the outfit. Check out this eyeliner set from Sephora. There are enough options to go with any look. Lastly, find a pair of combat boots to keep your feet warm and add the finishing touch to the outfit. Here is a great pair from Urban Outfitters.
