STYLE GURU BIO: Hannah Swenson

Bonjour Fashionistas/os! This fall semester I’ll be writing to you from Paris, and I cannot wait to capture all of French fashion, beauty and the French je ne sais quoi. This is my last year of college and I’m spending the fall semester at ESCP Europe. I’m completing my Master of Business there, and although I’m super excited, hope that I have enough time outside of school to explore the amazing city and take in all of the fashion and art.

Being in Paris will be a sensory overload, and I’m so excited. I plan on going to fashion week in Paris as well as London and Milan, so be sure to follow me on Instagram and Snapchat for full coverage. I don’t have a well-defined personal style, because it’s always evolving. That being said, I tend to lean towards more classic pieces, have a wardrobe anchored in a sea of black and love a dash of French fashion. I also tailor my outfits to my location. In Paris, I’m looking forward to a lot of square scarves, pops of red lipstick, all-striped everything, black on black and these new Everlane loafers.

I put together this outfit on the fly. Honestly, all I was looking for was comfort. I wear this BB Dakota jacket all of the time, since it goes with everything. I got these Madewell jeans on an impulse, and they are so comfortable and fit perfectly. If you want to truly blend in while in Europe wear tennis shoes, seriously. These all-white adidas are my favorite. They’re great for summer but will easily transition into fall as well. I hope you all enjoy following me journey around the City of Lights!
