STYLE GURU BIO: Halle Olson

I saw Gigi Hadid wearing cropped jeans and red booties, so I bought cropped jeans and red booties.

I’m Halle—like Halle Berry—and I’m back for my third semester as a Style Guru here at CollegeFashionista! I’m so excited to be sharing the fashion I find around campus this semester, especially because I’ll be finding stylish Fashionista/os at the University of Sunderland in England this fall. My trip across the pond is coming in just a few short weeks, and I’m already struggling with what outfits to pack for my four-month adventure.

This outfit, my new go-to for fall, will definitely be making the journey with me. The easy pieces can be mixed and matched with other basics to create a versatile wardrobe that weighs under 50 pounds and passes TSA standards. The bell sleeves on my Who What Wear for Target blouse are so on trend right now since ’70s-inspired style has come back around.

As a nod to the ’90s, I wore a pair of medium wash mom jeans, another trendy piece this season. I wore a simple gold and black pendant necklace as to not overwhelm the statement blouse and added some texture to my hair with texturizing spray from the Ouai.

The showstopper, of course, is my pair of oxblood suede booties. I searched high and low for pair similar to ones that Gigi Hadid wore with an all-denim look, and happened upon this perfect pair. I love the pointed toe and western-inspired feel. They’re going to be my go-to booties for the fall.

I’m ready for a #RAD semester in England and can’t wait to share British style with all of you Fashionistas!
