STYLE GURU BIO: Amelia Johnson

Hello Fashionista/os!

This is my first Style Guru Bio and I am ecstatic to be joining this team of creative bloggers and to introduce you all to my style. Some basics about me are that I am a freshman fashion merchandising major at Kent State University and I plan on minoring in fashion media as well as marketing. I am involved in Kent’s Fashion Student Organization (FSO), the makeup artists club on campus, in addition to the National Retail Federation Student Association (NRFSA). My top interests include thrifting (most of my clothing is thrifted), makeup (I am a freelance makeup artist), music (I am a concert fanatic), and dogs (unrelated—I just adore them). I love expressing my passions through fashion and writing for CollegeFashionista is the perfect opportunity to share my style with the world.

I figured it would be fitting for my first photos to reflect my music and thrifting obsessions. So, here I provided an example of an outfit that I would wear to a concert. I most often attend smaller, indie concerts for which I tend to wear casual clothing. For this particular ensemble, I paired a thin-strapped, printed boho dress over a black, lace bralette with an oversized cardigan and black tights. The dress and cardigan were both thrifted and the tights I picked up from Macy’s. Completing the look, I added my oxblood Dr. Martens for a subdued pop of color. To accessorize, I chose long, chain, fringe earrings that I purchased on clearance at Target. My makeup for the night featured a bronze halo eye and a vampy lip. This outfit is perfect for a winter outing because it is functional—including warm layers and comfortable shoes for standing—and yet it still makes a statement.

Lastly, I wanted to touch on the range of my personal style. Similar to the look showcased in this article, I do often wear edgy clothing with feminine characteristics. At the same time, however, I also enjoy wearing classic, polished attire. The theme of my apparel honestly depends upon the day and how I want to portray myself at the time. I believe that many can relate to this dynamic and it is an important part of developing a cohesive yet complex wardrobe. Finally, thank you so much to all who took the time to get to know me by reading this bio and I am excited to grow on this platform over the semester.
