Hello Fashionistas/os! My name is Carly Tice, and I am a senior at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck, New Jersey. This is my second semester as a Style Guru. I love being a part of the CollegeFashionista community! I am a marketing major and also a member of my University’s Division I Women’s soccer team. Fashion, photography and sports have always been a passion of mine. CollegeFashionista allows me to incorporate all three passions into one cohesive platform.

I would describe my style as constantly evolving. Currently, I am divulging in neutral colored pieces with modern cuts. However, being an athlete for the entirety of my life has impacted my sense of style. I am all for being comfortable but stylish. White sneakers, ripped denim, black sunglasses and a leather jacket are my go-to pieces.

My outfit in this post dresses up my day-to-day style, but it is still oh-so comfortable. The key piece in this outfit is my fringe skirt. I love the texture and movement it gives to the outfit, especially on a windy day! I paired the skirt with an oversized chunky sweater. Chunky knits are a staple in my winter wardrobe. My over the knee leather boots give the outfit a sophisticated edge, while my Coach backpack is a minimalist’s dream. This backpack has simple and clean lines. I like to invest in timeless pieces like my backpack. Investment pieces will last a lifetime and should be something you want to wear 20 years from now.

When I am not studying, playing soccer or working out, you can find me watching Netflix, traveling home to Florida or around the world. My next stop is Lima, Peru over winter break. I can’t wait to explore and show you a little Peruvian culture, gastronomy and fashion. I will also be interning at the CollegeFashionista office in New York, New York this spring semester. I am so grateful and excited for the opportunity not only to work in New York City but also to work with the amazing CollegeFashionista team! I look forward to sharing all my experiences with you.

I would love for you to check out my Instagram account @carly_tice and continue this conversation!
