STYLE GURU BIO: Kathrine Krekeler

Hey all you fashion enthusiasts out there, my name is Kathrine Krekeler, and I am so excited to say that this is my very first semester working with CollegeFashionista as an Ohio University Style Guru. I am from the Nasty Nati, as some like to call it, but for me I love calling it home. Growing up in Cincinnati has exposed me to so many different styles of dress, which reflect a wide range of individuality.

My style is very classic—and timeless with a pop, if I had to describe it. When I shop, I prefer to spend a couple extra dollars on items that I know will last me years, but don’t get me wrong, I love a good bargain. If there is an article of clothing that I NEED to have, but it’s on the pricier side, I will search and search until I find it for the price I am willing to spend. I am excited to share more of my shopping tips with you as the semester goes on.

A couple of my style icons include Reese Witherspoon, Lauren Conrad (post Laguna Beach and The Hills), Kate Middleton and also Victoria Beckham, just to name a few. Each of these women have a signature style that I love, but once in a while they will take a risk and wear something unexpected. Taking risks when it comes to dressing is thrilling. Having a signature style is great, but every now and again changing one item in your outfit can completely transform your look from a plain outfit into a fabulous ensemble.

Thank you so much for reading, and I can’t wait to share even more styling, shopping and beauty tips with you all. This is going to be a wild ride, and I’m glad I get to share it with you! Don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for my second article. It’s going to be RAD!
