STYLE GURU BIO: Chloe Mallow

Happy summer break everyone! Welcome to a little sneak peak about me. My name is Chloe Mallow, and this is my first semester as a Style Guru. I am super excited to share my summer style with all of you. I will be returning to Kent State University this fall as a sophomore and continuing with my major as a fashion merchandising student at the fashion school there! I am originally from Columbus, Ohio and love going downtown with friends, hanging out at local coffee shops and going to see concerts downtown. However, I now love Kent and really enjoy spending time at my new favorite places there.

I do enjoy relaxing on my back patio and lounging at the pool, but I also love adventure. I am absolutely obsessed with the outdoors and love really any activity outside from kayaking, hiking, walking my dog, to biking, or even paddle boarding. I have always adored clothes and loved the idea of fashion. It first started when I was a kid. I always loved to dress up for school and look nice. It really feels good when you put on clothes that express how you feel. The phrase looking good, feeling better really does apply here. My personal style is a mixture between girly, bohemian and preppy. Whatever I feel like when I wake up is what I wear for the day and that varies depending on the season and my mood. Living in Kent, Ohio most of the year has changed my style significantly. Coats are not just a fashion in the winter statement there!

My outfit featured above is inspired by alice + olivia’s resort 2016 collection. This means cool retro patterns, lots of layering, and bangles are in. I paired my kaleidoscope print pants with some Alex and Ani bangles and my favorite strappy leather sandals for a carefree but cute look! Thanks for reading my first article!
