Style Guru Bio

My name is Jalyn Smith and I am very excited to be posting as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista this semester! Always living in the Midwest I grew up in the “mitten” state, Michigan. I am in love with the Midwest so I chose to become a student-athlete at Marquette University. As a sophomore I am a part of the College of Communication, while majoring in advertising and living in the trendy and upcoming city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Though I am busy most of my week, I still love to treat every day as a fashion show! My style is constantly changing as the seasons change and the trends come and go. My walk-in closet consists of a large variety of neutral and neon colors, wool to fur textures and many plaid and polka-dot patterns. Each aspect of my style comes from exploring the different styles around the world. Traveling to places like Italy, Paris and Spain have definitely expanded my love for fashion! One day I can be classic chic walking around campus, the next day I can be effortless-boho chic shopping in the city on the weekend.

I am absolutely thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to bring my view of fashion, my passion for style and represent Marquette University as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista! For a school in the Midwest, Marquette University definitely has a wide variety of unique, classy and trendy students. I am more than excited to report on the fabulous students who are rocking the latest trends each week in STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK.
