STYLE GURO BIO: Alison Whittington

Hello, everyone! My name is Alison Whittington and I am back again for another season here as a Style Guru. As some of you may already know, I am a junior in Writing, Rhetoric and Technical Communications major and a Book Arts and Asian Studies double minor at James Madison University.

Fashion has grown to become a large part of my life; although, my outfits are not always a testament to that as the semester progresses. I love every aspect of the fashion world and aspire to one day be a writer for a fashion magazine so I can continue to learn and grow to become a more fashion-forward individual.

For anyone who has read my articles before, you may already know that I am a big fan of comfortable fashion. I show that once again in my outfit this week. I chose a Nohant tan top paired with floral print high-waisted shorts and black booties. This outfit is relaxed, stylish and comfortable. The booties add a bit of high-fashion to this otherwise casual look, and are versatile enough to be dressed down without compromising the look.

A tank top with high-waisted shorts is a look I go to often, as it is a little chic but also gives off a “carelessly fashionable” vibe. I love to mix and match styles, and because I am a college student, I especially love to stay fashion-forward on a budget. This semester, I hope to search for a variety of styles and fashion choices that can accurately reflect the diversity of the James Madison University campus and the vast choices of all Fashionistas/os out there.

I’m looking forward to spending another fashionable season with the CollegeFashionista crew!
