STYLE GURU BIO: Emily Holycross

Hey everyone, my name is Emily Stephania Holycross and I am so excited for my first semester with CollegeFashionista! I am a junior at Central Michigan University studying journalism, but fashion has and always will be my first love. Ever since I was little, I knew I loved fashion and was constantly playing dress-up or imagining I worked for a fashion magazine. Now I’m trying to make that dream a reality starting with this amazing internship!

With the slow and steady season change from winter to spring, and now the quick transition into summer, it is often difficult to choose an outfit that will be appropriate for the weather all day long. For this reason, I find it extremely important to have a go-to that will blend well with all seasons. One of my favorite pieces that I find myself able to wear no matter the time of year is my tan cropped sweater from Forever 21. Being light and airy, it allows for movement and airflow on those treacherously hot summer days. While on the other hand it is a great item for layering in the frigid cold.

Another staple piece in my wardrobe is my camouflage jacket, which was gifted to me by a friend. This jacket is very versatile because it is flexible enough to tie around your waist throughout the warmer days, while it still provides comfort and warmth when needed. Finally we have reached my most favorite article in my entire wardrobe: my Dr. Martens gifted to me by my boyfriend. I have always been a fan of ’90s fashion and Dr. Martens are a prime example of the ’90s look. No matter what I’m wearing, as long as I  wear my Dr. Martens, I am feeling fashionable and confident.
