Hi all fellow Fashionistas/os! My name is Alicia, and this my first semester as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista, and I’m so excited to join the team this spring. Born and raised here in NYC, I’m proud to continue to call this fashion capital of the world home at New York University. I’m on my second year of liberal studies here, and I can’t wait to share all the rad looks I find around campus.
For me, fashion is all about individuality, shaped by a person’s own distinct experiences, influences, and inspirations. It’s an expression of all the little bits and pieces that makes a person themselves, and it’s awesome that we share this as a society, especially with the increasing number of social platforms.
My individual style tends to follow a trend of simple and classic with a bit of quirk. However, this is ever evolving based on the looks, art, and the people that impact me. One day it’s the timeless cozy sweater and the next, it’s all rock-and-roll. Even the seasons impact this style, being a bit more free-spirited during the warmer months.
New York has had some lovely weather lately, which is why for my first bio, I went for an outfit that truly embodied my go-to look. Being from New York, black and white hues occupy most of my wardrobe. My go-to look is an oversized white button-down, paired with my favorite high-waisted black jeans and brown vagabond boots. To top it all off, I added a pop of color with a bright red cross-body bag and accessorized with a simple black choker, arrow necklace, and aviator Ray-Bans. Just like icing on cake, my outfit is complete.
I am so excited to embark on this creative journey where I have the chance to share my passion for all things fashion and lifestyle related. I am also looking forward to being inspired by all of you Fashionistas/os out there. So, stay tuned; more is yet to come!
