STYLE GURU BIO: Brogan Dearinger

Hello everyone! I’m Brogan Dearinger, and I’m heading into my junior year at Indiana University. I’m studying Journalism with a concentration in International Studies. This is my first summer as a CollegeFashionista Style Guru, and I am ecstatic.

I like to make my style similar to my life — simple. While I occasionally add some patterns and accessories to add complexity, my style mainly consists of neutral tones and comfortable, easy-to-wear pieces.

While I used to try to base my outfits off of Teen Vogue fashion spreads, moving on from high school has caused me to take more inspiration from my peers than from fashion magazines. There are so many stylish people on campus, and I so often find myself wishing I had at least one piece from other people’s outfits.

My outfit was mainly inspired by my desire for comfort. My T-shirt is incredibly soft and lightweight, so it is perfect tucked into my high-waisted American Eagle Outfitters shorts, which are a summer staple for me. I spiced up the look by tying a button-down by American Colors, a brand based out of Bloomington, around my waist. These strappy sandals are my absolute favorite, and I can’t go anywhere without a watch — I especially love my white and rose gold KORS Michael Kors watch, as it tells me what the date is. In all honesty, I’m lost without it.

I really look forward to sharing looks that inspire me, and I hope you find some fashion inspiration in my posts too. Cheers to a rad summer!
