STYLE GURU BIO: Emily Pierce

Hello my Fashionistas/os! My name is Emily Pierce and this fall I will be a junior at Illinois State University. I am studying Apparel Merchandising with a minor in Business Administration, hoping to purse a career in the wonderful world of fashion. As a second time CollegeFashionista Style Guru, I am so happy to be back writing for my favorite season—fall.

My love for fashion and everything concerning it started when I was at a young age, when my mother would always dress me to the nines. As I grew older, what was new and in style constantly overtook my mind. I was then finding myself starting to create looks and ideas of my own for fun. Taking that passion and running with it will be something I never regret. As college starts coming to an end and my career in the fashion world comes closer and closer, I could not be happier about pursing my dreams in this crazy world of fashion.

When it comes to my personal style, you can always count on me being head to toe in anything neutral, black and sometimes maroon. Being minimalist is the life I live, but with the best twist and accessories, of course! In this particular outfit, I am sticking with my minimalistic ways with a striped three-quarter sleeve top and black skinny pant combination. Like I said, I still like to put my own twist to my boring ways by adding a green khaki vest and wide-brimmed fedora. Not to mention, those perfect platform sandals! This certain color combination has to be one of my favorites and pairing with the gold accessories just adds the perfect finish!

I can’t wait to share my articles with all of you every month!
