My name is Amanda Ellis and this is my second semester with CollegeFashionista! I am a freshman fashion merchandising student at Kent State University in Ohio.
I would describe my style as classic but with a feminine twist. This look I put together truly epitomizes my style and personality. It incorporates a lot of 2016’s biggest trends: knee-high boots, off-the-shoulder tops, crushed velvet, and of course, chokers. I definitely consider myself to be a trendsetter, however I’m also very much a trend-follower. As a fashion student, I can’t help but to constantly pay attention to what others are wearing. I mean, it’s practically going to be my job one day.
Other than fashion, some of my biggest passions include music, art, and traveling. I’ll listen to pretty much any kind of music; I love the way songs can resonate with your feelings. Some of my favorite artists are Coldplay, One Direction (also each of the boys’ individual music), Taylor Swift, and The 1975. Art is also a huge love of mine; my dream date would definitely be at an art museum. Like the majority of young people, I also adore traveling. I love experiencing new things and cultures, and seeing places I’ve never seen before.
I truly think that my fashion sense represents my personality and interests. I enjoy dressing up and having fun and I think that really sums me up as a person.
I’m beyond excited to see what not only this semester brings, but what 2017 will bring as a whole! I can’t wait to continue writing for CollegeFashionista and hopefully connect with some more Style Gurus along the way. Happy New Year Fashionistas/os!
