STYLE GURU BIO: Elyzia Zhang

Hey! My name is Elyzia, and I’m a freshman studying at New York University for media, culture and communications. I’m very excited to start my first semester here at CollegeFashionista; I’ve been in love with fashion from a very young age. On top of fashion, I’m very passionate about art, makeup, and design. I love to sew clothing and make and design costumes.

My favorite thing about fashion is the way you can play with it—you don’t have to have one certain aesthetic that you follow, but you can mix and match different styles and articles of clothing to create a creative, unique look! My favorite saying when talking about fashion is that a smile is never out of style. The best way to make certain clothes and aesthetics truly yours is to apply things that you feel represent you. I’m heavily inspired by the TV shows I watch, the music I listen to, and the different aspects of my life that I love. I feel that graphic T-shirts are a great way to contribute a bit of your personality directly to your look. When people look at you, they’ll immediately be able to tell what kind of person you are.

For this look, I took a simple graphic T-shirt from H&M; the cute, repetitive pattern caught my eye and my love for cats. Then, I paired it with a quirky, black, high-waisted A-line skirt. My favorite kinds of these skirts often come with suspenders. I made my outfit infinitely more playful by adding on these black knee-high socks and sweet aviator sunglasses. The finishing touch that made my outfit pop were my Chuck Taylors, which stood out well from the black socks.

I hope you all enjoy this boppin’ look. If you would like to keep up with my clothes and costumes, make sure to follow me on other social medias!
