My name is Elana. I am a sophomore at Michigan State University and I LOVE yelling “Go Green.” I am an advertising major with a love for all things fashion and beauty. I am so excited to return to CollegeFashionista as a Style Guru.
Ever since I was a little girl I would dress myself, my parents saw it as a form of self expression, and I totally agree. I think that your style makes you a walking piece of art. Being able to wear what ever you want is a great way to show your confidence.
I describe my style as edgy prepster. I have always swooned over the beautiful cut of a Chanel dress, but I would also die for an edgy Yves Saint Laurent handbag. I think that being able to encompass both edgy and preppy style is a great way for me to express myself in different settings. I am able to transition my style from nightlife to a day in an office internship.
My look today encompasses all sides of my style at once. The main focus of my outfit were my super slouchy boyfriend jeans. Boyfriend jeans are on trend and I love the edgy look they give to any outfit. I paired them with a satin tank top to bring back my preppy style. I added an oversized cream cardigan to add texture and a matching cream-colored bag to brighten the look up. To finish off the look, I wore my metallic slip-on shoes.
You can find me just about anywhere in this look, from running errands on a busy Saturday to just grabbing lunch with my best friends. This look encompasses all of my style. Its ability to be edgy yet have a preppy edge is exactly what I want my outfits to show.
