Hi everyone! I’m Morgan Imossi, I’m 19, and I’m a rising sophomore studying Business Marketing and Fashion Merchandising at Marist College. Given that I am indecisive by nature, my aspirations for the future change like the weather. So, until I decide on an exact career path, I am looking forward to exploring as many different options in the business and fashion industries as I can. My infatuation with fashion, writing and photography brought me to CollegeFashionista, and I couldn’t be more excited to combine these passions in my column, ALL IN THE DETAILS, this summer.
Among my other interests, fashion has been one of the most dominant in my life. From playing dress up in my cousin’s closets, to spending every penny of my allowance at my favorite stores, to my current inability to ever spend less than four hours at the mall, I’ve always had a thing for clothes.
As I’ve grown older, however, I’ve realized that fashion is about so much more than just buying trendy outfits. Above all, fashion is a mode of communication – it’s a way to express yourself and a means by which the rest of the world perceives you. Personal style is a powerful tool and is completely under your own control, so take advantage of it. Be who you are and let that emanate through your clothing. In the words of fashion icon Rachel Zoe, “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak,” so in this age of communication overload, shut up for once and let your clothes do the talking!
It’s hard to define my own personal style, as it is ever changing. I am always trying out new trends and diving into different looks, but for the most part my style is driven by classics and simplicity. In my opinion, it’s much easier to appreciate an outfit if it doesn’t have too much going on in it, so I try to incorporate this concept of “less is more” in everything I wear. As for the trend driven side of my style, I find myself adopting more bohemian pieces into my outfits this season – there’s just something about the comfy, free-spirited vibe the clothes exude that I just can’t get enough of. Some of my boho inspired essentials this summer include long, flowy tops, harem pants and a few pairs of trusty leather sandals.
While Marist is set in the Hudson Valley town of Poughkeepsie, New York, this summer I will be reporting from my small hometown of Berlin in central Connecticut. Be sure to stay tuned for all the latest college trends I will be capturing in my column ALL IN THE DETAILS every Friday!
