STYLE GURU BIO: Alicia Kahl

Finding your own personal style is an adventure. Simple? Retro? Eccentric? All of the above? That’s OK! Your style does not have to be simplified into one word. Personally, I can go from a pair of blue jeans, a T-shirt and Vans all the way to a pair of heeled booties, black skinny jeans and a super cute and intricate top. I can’t exactly put my finger on one adjective to describe my person style, and that is completely cool with me.

Hi, my name is Alicia! I am a newbie Style Guru and am so thrilled to be here! I am going into my third year of college at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and cannot believe that I am halfway done with school! I am a public relations major and a music industry minor whose studies are fueled off of coffee and super fun classes! If you asked me what my favorite hobby was, I would not hesitate to tell you that it would be going to concerts. I could go on and on about my passion for concerts, music and musicians, but that could take me a day or three.

I will admit, I sometimes struggle with showcasing my style with confidence. That is part of the reason why I decided to apply for this RAD opportunity. I know that CollegeFashionista will help me step out of my comfort zone and expand my love for fashion. I am eager and excited to get inspired!

As for my outfit, this one engulfs all of the aspects of what I would consider to be my overall personal style. High neckline tops are one of my favorite trends to wear; I find that they really flatter my body. The distressed, black skinny jeans are actually thrifted and one of my most successful DIY projects. I am all for “cheap to chic,” and these old school style Levi jeans really went from drab to fab. For the shoes, I went with a cage-like sandal to carry the details from head to toe. To accessorize, I added a floppy hat and some dainty jewelry pieces. Rings are a must in every one of my outfits! With this outfit, I really wanted to include pieces that showed the diversity in my personal style. It’s perfect for date night or a journey through your favorite city!

Don’t worry about finding one specific style for you. Dabble into a few different looks. If you like leggings and a baggy T-shirt with some fresh new Nikes—awesome! If you want to rock a girly dress and a pair of heels–go for it! There is never one word to describe your own style. If it takes eight words, then so be it!

I cannot wait to see how the way I describe my style changes and broadens throughout my Style Guru adventures!
