STYLE GURU BIO: Hannah Swenson

Hi everyone! As you may have guessed, my name is Hannah, and I love fashion. What you may not have guessed is that I am a dog lover, love baking cupcakes, enjoy photography, and will be studying abroad in Paris next fall. I’m a rising senior at the University of Minnesota and I’m majoring in marketing and minoring in design and entrepreneurial management.

I decided to become a Style Guru because of how important personal style is to me. I dress for myself, and I find that not only fun but also empowering. You should view these blogs as a documentation of others personal style, not a concrete guidebook to dressing yourself. Find yourself through clothes, and dress yourself in what makes you happy.

My personal style is hard to define—I don’t think it ever really stays constant. With Paris in mind, I’ve been embracing more minimalist, effortlessly chic outfits, although I always have loved wearing a lot of black, horizontal stripes and a red lip; maybe it’s my fashion fate to end up in Paris. About 75 percent—or more—of my closet is black. However, I have a hidden inner girly-girl. I saw hot pink, sparkly kate spade pumps today and my heart may have started racing. My favorite designers include: Valentino, Carolina Herrera and Marchesa. If I could copy anyone’s personal style, and dance skills, it would without a doubt be Audrey Hepburn’s. And yes, I will most definitely watch Funny Face on repeat before Paris.

Welcome to my journey, and I hope that you enjoy the ride! Au revoir!
