STYLE GURU BIO: Hanna Benoski

Hi! I’m Hanna. I’m currently a sophomore at the University of Missouri—Columbia. I study textile and apparel management and am working to get a business minor. Fashion and art have always intrigued me and I am constantly looking for ways to incorporate both into my everyday life.

I consider fashion a form of artwork and as I study it in school, I am continuously wanting more inspiration, new ideas, and motivation. This is where I turn to Instagram accounts, YouTube channels, personal blogs as well as many other forms of inspiration. Gathering new ideas is so exhilarating. Walking into a mall is a constant mind game; how many outfits can I make out of this one piece? How can I make this different than how one would imaging wearing it? Creativity takes over the mind.

As for this specific outfit, I tried to keep it simple yet versatile. In order to create an outfit like this you don’t need the exact pieces. Use it as a form of inspiration and grab what is around you. That’s what it is all about anyway. Here, I am wearing a pair of denim jeans and a jacket that I picked up from the thrift store and cut myself. When I’m there I tend to look for staple pieces that I can use many different ways. I paired them with a tight olive green high neck top. This simple top was easy to pair with layered accessories, such as the neck scarf I grabbed from the thrift store and necklace from my good friend. I wore some simple black booties that go with everything and paired it with my favorite sunglasses.

I hope you guys enjoyed my first post as much as I enjoyed writing it. Can’t wait to continue writing more. Make sure to follow me on my links to see more about my everyday life!
