STYLE GURU BIO: Kelsey Knepler

It is particularly difficult to say goodbye to this summer after interning in New York City. I fell head over heels in love with the city these past few months. I loved getting to eat amazing brunches, shop at countless breathtaking clothing stores and attend CollegeFashionista events with my RAD Style Gurus. As much as I will miss the rush of the city, I am looking forward to getting back on campus just in time to spot the trends for my favorite season—fall. The whole season is full of such warmth; I absolutely love sweaters, leggings and all things cozy!

As I enter my senior year, I cannot believe how fast the time has gone by. My style has evolved rapidly over these past few semesters. Especially after my experience interning in NYC, I have been inspired to begin adding more sophisticated and neutral pieces to my wardrobe. Black, dusty pink and taupe have become some of my favorite colors. I have realized when you build your wardrobe around neutrals, you can find a lot more possibilities for outfits through easily being able to mix and match.

But, of course, I still like to have fun with my clothes. This bold and colorful romper is one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe. Well, it’s technically a skirt in the front and shorts in the back. I am in love with surprising details like this. To finish off the look, I wanted to keep accessories simple to keep the focus on the funky geometric print of the dress. I topped the look off with my favorite Rebecca Minkoff mini M.A.C. cross-body bag and a pair of nude pointed flats.

I hope you all are as excited about fall as I am. Here’s to a RAD semester, and I’ll see you on campus!
