STYLE GURU BIO: Billie Owens

Hey, what’s up everyone! My name is Billie LaRaé Owens, and I am a junior studying broadcast and digital journalism at Syracuse University. I am a part of a fashion and beauty milestone program at Syracuse, where I get to learn about the history of fashion and even the psychology behind why people wear certain clothes. Who wouldn’t want to know that?

Now that all the generic stuff is out of the way, how about I introduce you to some of the more interesting qualities that make me who I am. To start off, no Billie is not just a boys’ name. I am named after my father and I always thought the “ie” made my name cute and girly. I am very tall, which I owe to my father as well. Due to my height, I am able to show off my legs, accentuate my long torso, and model in many fashion shows. I am the middle child of five, so I am used to and enjoy being around people. I love to laugh, I think it’s okay to cry, and I am a very curious person (which I think is the reason why I ask so many questions).

I know it is very cliché, but I do have a passion for fashion, which I think dates all the way back to when I was a toddler (my mom use to get custom made bows for me to match every single outfit I had). I have two sisters and a very fashionable mother. All of us have are own sense of style but have all walked away with the “Best Dressed” title at our high school. With fashion being such a big part of my life since a young age, I was destined to become a CollegeFashionista Style Guru.

I like to believe that I have more then one look and I create these looks by adding chic to the end of everything. So you can catch me in my biker chic, boho chic, or even my street chic.

For this look, I decided to be simple but still edgy. I am wearing blue Levi jeans and a black T-shirt, but decided to dress my outfit up with a sick choker, fringe bag, and a beautiful Free People Trench coat. I feel like every outfit should consist of one statement piece, and in my case my coat acts as just that.

I am so excited to be spending my next semester finding people who don’t just follow trends but create them, and people who are not afraid to dress how they want. But most importantly, I am excited to see people who love fashion just as much as me.
