Hello Fashionistas and Fashionistos! My name is Cheree Pollard, and I am so thrilled to announce that I will be a Style Guru this summer for CollegeFashionista! I am currently a rising senior at the University of South Carolina, and my love of the fashion industry pushed me to be a Fashion Merchandising major. I have lived right here in Columbia, South Carolina most of my life but this summer I will be working and spending most of my time in beautiful New York City! I am excited to bring my southern style to the Big Apple.
My style has been influenced by a multitude of things such as bloggers, visuals in my favorite stores and what I see in my favorite magazines. But the most important influencer would have to be street style. I love seeing how creative others can get with their outfit choices, and it is so interesting to see how others accessorize and style certain pieces.
Growing up in the South has certainly had an influence on my sense of style. I would describe my style as girly with an edge. I love a good sundress like this one I’m wearing from French brand Pimkie. This dress is so bright and lightweight; it’s perfect for those hot Carolina summers! I also love simple yet standout accessories like delicate layered necklaces and this gorgeous gray bag. And no summer look is complete without a pair of shades, my favorite being aviator Ray-Bans.
This summer I will be taking you to the best fashion spots around NYC each Wednesday in the AROUND TOWN column! I look forward to representing the University of South Carolina and CollegeFashionista in NYC this summer, and I cannot wait to take you all on this journey with me!
