My name is Abigail Bird and I am going into my second year at UMass Amherst as an English major. I have always been passionate about writing, and throughout my first year at college, I developed an interest in the fashion trends around my campus. Due to my passion for fashion and writing, I believe the opportunity to be a Style Guru is perfect for me and I am ecstatic to be joining the CollegeFashionista team this summer. Throughout the summer, I plan to exhibit my favorite fashion trends and styles as of now, as well as how to recreate them effortlessly with various different twists.

As my journey continues to evolve through college, I believe my style will evolve, as well. I find fashion to be a very personal aspect in ones life, and therefore as your style changes, the way you present yourself and the way others perceive you will evolve as well. Fashion and fashion perceptions in the media have always sparked my interest and currently my fashion icons include Sarah Hyland, Behati Prinsloo and Kendall Jenner. These three icons really make a bold, yet poised statement with their uniques styles, incorporating the perfect amount of edge and trendiness while still remaining graceful. Using their fashion sense as a model, my ideal outfit for summer 2015 would include high-wasted jean shorts, a black tank top with lace trim, monochromatic white high-top Converse, with a classic black choker to add a bit of edge. That specific outfit would incorporate all the aspects of fashion my icons possess, as well as being trendy and fashionable while still being comfortable and effortless.

Throughout my journey with CollegeFashionista as a Style Guru, I hope I will be able to expand my knowledge of fashion, increase my writing skills and become more aware of the various trends in fashion that are constantly evolving and changing. With this, I want to hopefully better my style to become more trendy, myself.
