STYLE GURU BIO: Kiara Wu

Bonjour Fashionistas! My name is Kiara Wu and I am currently majoring in Business Marketing at Cal Poly Pomona. I am grateful for this opportunity to express myself and expose fashion with CollegeFashionista. 

I’ll be honest, I never thought about going anywhere with fashion until now. My fashion inspirations have always been my older cousins. Thanks to them, I have accumulated some timeless pieces, but also an interest in the fashion world. I have spent countless hours of scrolling through fashion magazines and blogs for inspiration. I am looking forward to discovering new passions and opportunities in the fashion world. 

My own personal style changes each day with my mood. I tend to drift towards the neutral colors of black, white, navy and grey. I like to think of my taste as classy, but with some edge. One day I can be glamorous, and the next day I can look like I came out of Hollister. Fashion does not force you to stick with one style, and that is something I love. I am slowly forcing myself to get out of my comfort zone and take risks in my fashion choices as well as life itself. 

I chose an outfit that can be transitioned from day to night. Wearing neutral colors is always an easy way to do this, because all you have to change is your accessories to dress it up. My white poplin top is from Zara, my modern black jeans are from Ann Taylor and my black heels are from Express. I try to keep the accessories to a minimum. My sunglasses are from BCBGeneration, watch is by Marc Jacobs and my leather handbag is from Lancaster, Paris.

As Harry Winston said, ” People will stare. Make it worth their while.”
