STYLE GURU BIO: Caitlin Reddington

My name is Caitlin Reddington. I’m 19 years old. This is my first semester interning for CollegeFashionista. I’m starting my junior year at Mercyhurst University this fall. At Mercyhurst, I’m studying Fashion Merchandising. I plan on attending the Fashion Institute of Technology my senior year as part of the visiting student program at Mercyhurst. At the Fashion Institute of Technology, I will be studying Advertising and Communications. This will allow me to earn an associate’s degree in addition to my bachelor’s degree at Mercyhurst.

After graduating from college, my ultimate goal is to become a Senior Market Editor at a fashion magazine. My favorite areas of the fashion industry are editorial and styling. Even though I have goals of what I want to do after graduation, I can’t wait to see where life in the fashion industry takes me.

Some of my other interests include: dancing, singing and playing the guitar. I was a dancer from age four through 18 years old. Dance has been a big part of my life, and it has definitely influenced my style over the years. When I’m not checking up on my social media, you can usually find me watching Full House or Friends, riding my bike, reading, blogging or grabbing coffee and shopping with my friends.

I love that fashion is limitless; there aren’t specific rules on how you should or shouldn’t dress. Fashion allows you to be yourself and wear whatever makes you comfortable. Whether you love wearing that cute dress to your 8:00 a.m. class, or you prefer to be comfortable in leggings and a cozy scarf, you can dress based on your mood. Dressing for your mood is one of the many reasons why fashion is limitless.

I would describe my style as romantic with a little bit of classic thrown in. I’m usually wearing a floral dress, a pastel color or a headband. I love my little black dresses, red lipstick and black ballet flats, too! My favorite season to dress for is fall. I love layering, wearing my favorite riding boots and breaking out my blanket scarves.

I’m super excited to start interning for CollegeFashionista, and I can’t wait to see what the semester has in store for me!
