Hey there, Fashionista/os! My name is Kristen Turner and I am currently a junior at the University of Delaware majoring in Fashion Merchandising and minoring in Journalism and Advertising. I am beyond excited to be returning to the CollegeFashionista team as a Style Guru for a second semester!
When people ask me how I would describe my own personal style, I am able to sum it up in one word—diverse. What I wear each day is completely dependent on my mood when I wake up in the morning. I may be feeling a grunge look, complete with combat boots and my favorite leather jacket. The next day, I might be wearing a soft pink sundress with ballet flats. It’s always ever-changing.
One constant when it comes to my style is that I love experimenting with trends. For example, I am absolutely obsessed with this jumpsuit from LOFT. It’s the perfect alternative for a fancy dress and one I find a lot more comfortable. This type of piece would be suitable for a fancy event. I’ll be wearing it when I go to the ballet in Paris on my study abroad trip! Paired with some nude heels, a bracelet and chandelier earrings, this is the kind of outfit that makes me feel fabulous and confident.
I had an absolute blast photographing my peers this past fall as a brand new Style Guru. It has really opened my eyes to all of the trendsetters that walk around UD’s campus every day! Before, I would just walk to class focused on where I had to go. Now, I find myself scoping out the most fashionable students! They have been a great influence on my own personal style, introduced me to the newest trends and, more than anything, inspired me. I can’t wait to find more over the next few months!
