STYLE GURU BIO: Elizabeth Thompson

Hello, Fashionistas and Fashionistos! My name is Elizabeth Thompson, and I am so excited to be back for my fourth semester with CollegeFashionista. I am a sophomore at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio studying marketing and looking to pursue a job in fashion/retail.

A year in, I am so happy to be a part of the Guru Gang and continuing to improve my writing, photography, and personal style. When it comes to my personal style, it really depends on whatever catches my eye. There’s no trend I’m afraid to explore and I’m always on the hunt for something new to try out. I’m a huge fan of layering different sweaters, vest and jackets, and winter and spring are the best time to explore this look.

This season I have been loving open-cut ponchos. For this outfit, I paired it over a black turtleneck that I layered with a burnt orange sweater to accent the pattern of the poncho. For accessories, I wore these adorable pair of booties along with my favorite leather Tory Burch clutch. I’m always on the hunt for a new pair of shoes or a great bag to dress up my look, and I will definitely get my fair share out of these two this season.

Another trend I have been sporting is unhemmed, distressed jeans. My long legs have been waiting for cropped pants to be in style, and finally I can rock short pants guilt free. They add a little edge to any look and are an easy way to change up the typical black, skinny jean look.

I can’t wait to see what looks and trends this semester holds and hope you will continue to check out my posts every month!
