STYLE GURU BIO: Jonathan McDougle

My name is Jonathan McDougle and I’m a junior attending East Carolina University. More importantly, I’m ecstatic to say that I will be returning for another year scouting #RAD Fashionista/os around ECU’s campus. I’m truly honored and hope that you continue to take this journey with me as a Style Guru.

Fashion has always been an outlet for me to express and set myself apart from my counterparts, and my favorite season to do so is fall. I love how you have the option to layer, subtly bring colors together, stay neutral or dress boldly. And who doesn’t love sweater weather? What I love most about fashion is how much it evolves, and I enjoy watching the evolution of my style when new eras of trends come around.

I laud high fashion and those who work within it. The phrase, “Fashion hurts,” is something I live for. However, I’m grateful that I do not have to experience the painful side of fashion very often since I am a man. With this being said, I strongly advocate not only to myself but to others as well to dress fashionably yet comfortably the majority of the time. Especially considering that I am a college student always on the go, it’s important to me to find a balance between the two.

Again, I’m thrilled to be back so that I can help others achieve this same equilibrium by scouting other Fashionista/os who share my same philosophy.
