STYLE GURU BIO: Janelle Reid

Style Guru Bio

Greetings fellow Fashionistas and Fashionistos! My name is Janelle Reid, and I am a senior Fashion Merchandising Major at Virginia Commonwealth University. This is my first semester as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista, and, I have to say, I couldn’t imagine a better way to spend my last semester in college! I am an aspiring editorial stylist who finds refuge in the pages of NYLON and Vogue. If you ever catch me on my laptop, you can bet I am consumed in clothes. A tomboy at heart, I am the Fashionista most likely wearing the Fashionisto’s clothes and making them feminine. My personal favorite? A classic oversized button-down.

Fashion has always spoken to me in some way. Although I cannot say that at an extraordinarily young age I knew I wanted to have a career in fashion, I can say that I have always had a knack for self-expression. The way I see it, style reflects the way you view yourself, want to be viewed by others and the way you view the world around you. I am constantly experimenting with different ways to wear outfits and I enjoy observing as others do the same, which is exactly why I became so interested in CollegeFashionista.

I am so stoked on becoming a Style Guru where I can delve right into capturing and discovering the excitingly unpredictable street style of my peers. Sure to keep you posted every Wednesday, I will be showcasing the oh-so fashionable VCU Rams with the FASHIONISTA SPOTLIGHT each week this spring semester!
