STYLE GURU BIO: Annette Campos Carrillo

Hello everyone, my name is Annette and, of course, I love fashion. It is my first year being a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista. I am excited to see what is in store and also happy to be able to produce content for the readers.

Currently, I am a freshman at the University of California, Davis. I am a communications major, but I am also planning on double majoring in design. I am hoping to work in fashion magazines once I graduate college. My favorite magazines to read are Vogue, i-D, Dazed, and Wonderland.

There is no exact term to describe my style, as I like to experiment with different accessories and clothing. Whenever I see a good outfit, I get excited and start thinking of how I can recreate it in my own way or if I see a staple clothing piece, I start to think of ideas of how I can incorporate it into my outfits. Fashion for me has always been fun. One should always be trying clothing and accessories out of one’s comfort zone; you never know how it might look!

Most people, myself included, have a hard time picking out an outfit when it starts to get cold; most of us just throw on a jacket and walk out the door. However, having a staple piece can turn an ordinary outfit into a fashionable one. For my outfit in the picture, I decided to wear this vegan leather jacket. Underneath my jacket, I picked a shirt which served as my staple piece; this shirt has two tigers in the front of a tie dye background. It’s a unique design and it’s thrifted; it’s one of a kind! I don’t wear a lot of accessories, but hoop earrings are so easy to wear and they look good on everyone. For the rest of my outfit, I just threw on some jeans from UNIF and my white Converse shoes, perfect for walking around the campus.
