STYLE GURU BIO: Amber Koenigsknecht

Hey Fashionistas! My name is Amber Koenigsknecht. Yes, that’s a long last name and yes, it’s German! I was born and raised in a small town called DeWitt, Michigan which is just a short drive from the state’s capital of Lansing. I’m a sophomore at Central Michigan University majoring in advertising, minoring in marketing, and pursuing my passion for social media and photography. As my Instagram bio describes me, I am “cool, calm and college-ing.”

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a compulsive list making and photo taking kind of girl. I am a firm believer in coffee and creativity, because the coffee keeps me up and creativity keeps me going. This is my first semester writing for CollegeFashionista and I couldn’t be more excited.

I’ve always had a love for fashion but I don’t always have the funds for it. No worries! This dilemma has actually been a blessing in disguise. My love for thrift shopping has given me the chance to fulfill my shopping and style desires without emptying my bank account. The best part is knowing for a fact that no one else has what I wear. But of course, I love to wear Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, and Lululemon pieces. Mixing new styles with old thrifted ones is how I put my look together. Whether it’s boho or bold, I love clothing that represents and empowers the Fashionista who is wearing it.

Throughout the holiday season, I happily added many new pieces to my wardrobe. For this look, I wore my corduroy jacket and cream turtleneck which were both found at my local thrift store. I feel the most comfortable and confident when my outfit is as laid back as I am, so my looks tend to follow a neutral color scheme. I finished off my outfit with my favorite pairs of high-waisted jeans and boots.
