STYLE GURU BIO: Allie Keigher

January 4th, 2016 at 8:45am

Hello readers! My name is Allie Keigher and I am thrilled to be a Style Guru for the upcoming semester. I am a freshman at Elon University majoring in Communication Design with a minor in Digital Art. Though I have always loved photography and writing, I do find myself constantly intrigued with the fashion world. From simply picking out an outfit to even looking at style magazines, I must say I have an interest in staying in tune with the latest trends in fashion.

Whether it is a night out, a day in town or even class, I find it important to look polished, yet feel comfortable all at the same time. When it comes to the collection of clothing in my personal wardrobe, I would say I am into a more contemporary, chic look. However, at times I like to bring back older, more traditional styles and pieces. I tend to stick to a neutral palette with pops of color in one or two pieces of the outfit. I find playing around with patterns to be very fun as well, especially when it comes to dresses and constructing a more sophisticated look.

Today I went with a minimal look with simple colors and added a splash of blue with my Illesteva sunglasses. I also wanted something that would fit in nicely with the holiday atmosphere and show my personal taste. I paired my favorite J.Crew black pants with a cozy cashmere turtleneck and fur vest. Lastly, my tall boots bring it all together and balance the accessories I have on top. This is definitely my go-to outfit during the chilly days of December!

I hope my page serves has an inspiration to use fashion as a way to reflect ones personality. A wardrobe should be an expression of oneself and a way to channel creativity, and I want everyone to be confident in what they are wearing everyday. As a new Style Guru I look forward to exploring more of the fashion world and sharing the latest trends on my college campus with all of you!
