Hello CollegeFashionista world! My name is Devon McLain and I am thrilled to be part of the CollegeFashionista this spring! I can not wait to share my style with all of you and to connect through this great community!

I grew up in a small town outside of Akron, Ohio, and have always been inspired by fashion. This passion came from my grandmother who taught me how to sew, knit, and embroider when I was very young. We would work on her mother’s quilts (that were handed down to her) for hours trying to finish the beautiful flowers. This sparked my love for fashion that continues to grow everyday. I have always played around with different styles, menswear, and accessories throughout my life, and I think this is what kept me inspired and motivated to make a career in this industry. As a junior at Kent State University–The Fashion School, majoring in fashion merchandising along with a double minor of marketing and fashion media, I am so happy learning more about fashion and media industries.

As for my personal style, I describe it as classic with an edge. I am not much of a trend follower, so I love easy-to-wear items like denim, a classic red lip, and funky accessories. Sunglasses are my favorite accessory to add to any outfit for some glamour, but they are also super cute and functional! The look I’m sporting represents my style very well—classic items such as the black turtle neck, chiffon jacket with a white baseball sleeves, and a skinny destroyed denim. A creeper sneaker, funky sunglasses, and interesting accessories makes the everyday interesting!

I am looking forward to being part of the CollegeFashionista team! This semester is going to be one for the books! I hope you all enjoy my posts and I can’t wait to connect!
