STYLE GURU BIO: Kylie Simmons

Hey, what’s up, HELLO! My name is Kylie Simmons and I am currently a senior at Kalamazoo College in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I am majoring in psychology with a concentration in media studies. I am a stutter advocate, fashion guru, yogi and a producer. In the future, I hope to produce my own reality-competitive television series within the entertainment industry.

I am a person who stutters, so sometimes it can be challenging for me to express what I want to say verbally. As a result, I use MY OWN STYLE to make a statement. Chicago born, DC raised, while also going to school in Michigan has allowed me to play around with a diverse set of fashion trends. I try not to follow one “type” of style and sometimes I break the rules when it comes to following trends. I’ve always loved taking risk with my personal style by mixing and matching different colors and patterns. I love sporting my own style in the fall, winter, spring and summer!

I am IN LOVE with Betsey Johnson! I always wear one of her pieces with my outfits. I would describe Betsey Johnson as fierce, bold and unique! I love how each item, such as a purse, backpack, or jewelry, has it’s own unique flavor. Adding a Betsey Johnson piece to any outfit always adds a pop of spice!

In addition to fashion, I am passionate about television production, stutter advocacy and fitness! I love helping out with live television productions, video editing and producing video content. I also love doing yoga and dancing. In addition, I am passionate about educating people about stuttering and motivating others to speak up! No matter what I do, I always make sure that my fashion is on point! I love the fact that I can incorporate my love of expressing myself through fashion while also doing what I love!

I am excited to be apart of the CollegeFashionista team! It will help give me the opportunity to combine my love for fashion and journalism. I cannot wait to capture unique styles and trends!
