STYLE GURU BIO: Julia Cazares

January 24th, 2017 at 2:00am

It’s crazy to think that just a year ago, I was beginning my journey with CollegeFashionista and now I’m here writing my last bio. I know, it’s a very sad day, but it’s also super exciting and crazy that I’m about to go into the real adult world. Although I’ve only been interning with CF for a year, the changes I’ve noticed in myself and my abilities are so apparent. And it’s not only in the way I write my articles but also in the way I think about the content that I post and the effect I want it to have on my audience. This is so important because after I graduate in May from the University of Mary Washington, I eventually want to start a career in marketing.

Aside from the technical skills that I’ve been developing, my personal style has evolved into something that I never thought I would be able to pull off. When I first started with CF, I was comfortable in my super flowy, boho look. While I still love rocking a maxi skirt and a peasant top, the inspiration I have gotten from my fellow Style Guru’s as well, as beauty/fashion influencers on social media has helped me learn to be bold and try new things with my style. I’m no longer afraid that someone will judge my outfit because I know what I love to wear and that’s what’s important.

I have to say; this is definitely my favorite outfit I’ve worn for a Style Guru Bio. And yes, I was very cold while wearing a dress in the snow but hey, I’m committed to a cool shot. I wanted this look to be centered around the over-the-knee boots I’m wearing and I thought a T-shirt dress would look so cute because I could show some of my legs but not be too cold in the winter weather. I’m a firm believer in not covering up a good outfit with a winter coat, so I chose a distressed denim jacket to not only keep me warm but to add another element of the street style look I wanted. And, of course, I had to finish it off with an accessory from my all-time favorite designer, Calvin Klein. The perfect crossbody bag is essential to my everyday wardrobe.

Although I won’t be able to continue writing for CF after I graduate, I am so excited to see what the next part of my life holds, but let’s get through this semester first! I can’t wait to read all the other Style Guru’s articles!
