No matter where you travel, whether it is Paris, Tokyo, London or New York City, style is a universal language. You can say so much about yourself as a person by what you are wearing without muttering a single word in any language. In every city around the world, your outfit speaks for itself. Fashion speaks every language and that is what I love about it.
My name is Tess Kornfeld and I am a rising junior at Syracuse University majoring in Magazine Journalism with a minor in Art History.
My passion for fashion started when I fell in love with reading magazines in middle school. After a long day, I would unwind in an issue of Teen Vogue or Seventeen before starting my homework. Nothing made me happier than when a new issue arrived in my mailbox. Something about flipping through the glossy pages made me fall in love with the captivating spreads, the make-up and most of all, the clothes. Fashion magazines inspired me to actually have a sense of style instead of wearing the same zip-up and high top converse everyday (yes, it happened.) As I’ve matured and my style has changed, I still find myself hooked on fashion magazines. Fashion is ever-changing—it keeps things fresh and interesting.
As for my style, it changes with the seasons. During the winter, I like to stay comfortable in the cold weather so I wear a lot of black and chunky knit sweaters with leather riding boots. To keep things fun and a little less gloomy, I throw on a colorful knit scarf. When the weather finally gets warm, I take advantage of it. I tend to have a more laid-back style. I skip the black, wear bright colors and show some leg. Right now, I am in love with the reemergence of ’90s style. Bleached denim cut-off shorts? Yes, please!
My favorite accessory at the moment is a turban headband. And this summer, I look forward to giving you a weekly ACCESSORIES REPORT while I am home in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Get ready Fashionista/os of Scranton, I’m coming for you and I am so excited!
