My name is Alexa Roberts and I’m excited to be returning for my third semester as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista! After a few semesters of being an undecided student at Syracuse University, I finally made the decision to double major in writing and English textual studies. Although it quickly transitions into fall/winter, I hope to bring you lots fashion inspiration straight from the students of Syracuse.
Being from the Chicago area, I know the struggle of trying to make your outfit look stylish without ignoring that fact that it is below freezing outside. After years of dealing with this problem I have mastered (well, almost; my style is always changing!) how to layer up and stay true to my personal style while staying warm. My style is overall minimalist with a few touches of bold patterns and prints. What I wear on a day-to-day basis depends heavily on my mood but the go-to items in my closet are my leather jacket and sunglasses. No matter the day, I always end up incorporating one or the other into my outfit.
The outfit that I’m wearing is a great example of what I like to wear on an average summer day or weekend when I’m not working. When it’s hot, I absolutely HATE wearing pants. So this midi skirt and crop top, both from Zara, are the perfect combination to get through a day of summer activities. I finished off my outfit with my favorite cross-body bag and sunglasses.
