STYLE GURU BIO: Cassidy Batkin

Hey guys! My name is Cassidy and I’m going into my sophomore year at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York. I am from Long Island and never thought I would be going to school in the Hudson Valley, but I’m absolutely loving every second of it! I am majoring in Fashion Merchandising with a concentration in Fashion Promotion. I decided to attend Marist for not only the amazing scenic views, but for the outstanding fashion program. Ever since I can remember, I have always been intrigued with the fashion industry; watching the awards shows solely for the red carpet fashion. As a career, I would love to be a stylist working with celebrities in either New York or Los Angeles.

My go-to outfit for the spring and early summer season is a pair of skinny jeans paired with a flowy top and strappy sandals. I’m a big fan of suede, especially since it has become popular for the summer season. I don’t usually go for the bright colors with patterns. My style mainly consists of solid, neutral colors because they can match with so many different types of clothing. My motto is less is more. I feel as if simple accessories paired with a neutral color palette make more of a statement than grandiose accessories with bright colors and mix and match patterns.

The outfit I have chosen for my STYLE GURU BIO consists of my favorite pair of cropped, blue skinny jeans paired with a white sleeveless top with an eyelet pattern from Lord & Taylor. As for my statement pieces, I chose to wear my suede strappy Sam Edelman heels and a chestnut colored Steve Madden cross-body bag.

I am so excited to be part of the Style Guru team at CollegeFashionista and can’t wait to share my styling and fashion insight with you guys!
