STYLE GURU BIO: Kayla Barrow

Hello one, hello all! I am so excited to start my first internship with CollegeFashionista during their summer term. I’m 21 years old, from New Jersey and I love styling. Growing up, I always enjoyed art, from painting my own creations to coloring in between the lines of someone else’s. As I got older I realized that art didn’t simply have to be put on a canvas, but that I could create through the items I wore.

My style changes constantly. I love incorporating new trends and bold pieces, but I’ll always stray back to the basics! My closet is mostly made up of neutrals (creams, whites & tans), black (duh!) and grays & olive greens (my favorites). I love shift dresses for all seasons, especially during the summer time because I’m not a fan of wearing shorts. Loose fitting tank tops paired with pretty bralettes are my favorite new fad, but most importantly I love rompers/jumpsuits!

I’m passionate about styling and writing when inspiration strikes. I enjoy creating, but showing others the method behind my thinking. After working in retail for 3 years I have grown to love styling not only myself, but others as well. Styling is something that I have taken from a personal joy and turned into a hobby. As far as my schooling major goes I am undeclared, but I do aspire to work as a personal stylist, visual manager and interior designer some day even if it’s just for personal fun. I would love to be a small business owner in the future!

I can’t wait to share my thoughts, outfits and favorite pieces with everyone, but I’m also very excited to see what else I have to learn this summer!
