STYLE GURU BIO: Caitlin Kennedy

Style Guru Bio

My name is Caitlin Kennedy! I am a junior at the University of Iowa, studying communications,with minors in Spanish and human relations, as well as a certificate in leadership studies. I am excited for my second semester as a Style Guru. Honestly, I am even more excited about where I am writing from this time. I will be writing the FASHION FROM ABROAD column this semester from Barcelona, Spain! I have been in Barcelona for only a week but am already in love with the European style here. I cannot wait to capture this unique fashion through my posts.

As for me, my style is constantly changing. I find my style is most influenced by the environment around me. I’m sure this amazing experience abroad will influence my fashion tastes. I love incorporating different styles into one look that is my own. I am usually mixing pieces from Nordstrom, Von Maur, Target, H&M and Forever 21 to create my outfits. My family and friends joke about some of the bold fashion moves I make with two typical phrases, “That is so you,” or “That’s definitely a Caitlin outfit.” I truly believe fashion is what you make it. If you love a certain trend, wear it with confidence. The more trends I try, the more my style develops.

This season, I love feminine fashion with an edgy flare. My anorak and military jackets are my staple this winter. I can be found in my favorite chiffon blouse with my treasured fur vest or a cropped sweater, leather skater skirt and elaborate statement necklace on the weekends. Yet, for class, I can be found in a comfy oversized sweater, leggings and combat boots.

Through my first semester as a Style Guru, I saw the unique array of fashion in Iowa City. I am so excited to use my friendly Midwest attitude to find European Fashionistas/os this spring. Vamanos!
