My name is Lauren and I am a sophomore at Bucknell University. I am so excited to be writing STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK! This is my first time writing for CollegeFashionista, and I am so happy to be a part of the Style Guru team. This past summer, I was lucky enough to intern in the city for the fashion designer Donna Degnan as a part of her public relations and marketing team. During this internship, I wrote blog posts on many of the latest trends. I also write for Bucknell’s own fashion magazine, Be Fashion, which brings fun fashion advice to the Bucknell community. I have been really fortunate to have traveled a lot, which has greatly impacted my fashion sense. I love going to new countries and seeing the way that people dress and then working it into my own wardrobe.
My own style is really dependent on my mood (and the weather). This cashmere aqua sweater with a graphic design and my Dr Martens combat boots help keep me warm after the recent snow. No matter the season, I tend to live in denim. These gray 7 For All Mankind jeans are a great and easy neutral for the winter. I also love wearing rings and mixing up bangles that I have collected over the years. I am a hoarder when it comes to accessories because I believe that everything eventually comes back into style. I like to try bending the rules by mixing metals; whoever says silver and gold don’t go together clearly hasn’t met me. I really believe that a Fashionista can pull off any trend as long as she is confident in the clothes she is wearing.
I cannot wait to spot some amazing trendsetters and see what the rest of this winter and the upcoming spring have in store. Keep an eye out for my STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK this semester.
