STYLE GURU BIO: Larry Stansbury

My name is Larry Stansbury and I am a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista for the summer 2016. My roots come from Maryland (DMV is where it’s at) but I go to Syracuse University majoring in writing and rhetoric, with being part of the exclusive fashion and beauty communications milestone. I hope to become an editor for a fashion magazine or work for a fashion PR firm after college.

People always tell me “Larry, why do you dress nice?” or “How can you pull off a slick look when it’s a boring day?”

I tell them, “Hello, I never get out my dorm or apartment lookin’ like a hot mess. I like to be stylish and comfortable when I go out.”

I think ever since I gave this response to my friends, it made me think of fashion itself. Fashion is a statement, a medium, a go-to for anything. You can always count on fashion. With me, fashion is a feature.

If I ask my friends how they would describe my style, the words preppy, classy and of course basic would be it. It’s cool when they use a hashtag to describe my style. I’m known for dressing classy and looking clean as well. I also love dressing comfortable because that’s all that matters at the end of the day, being comfortable and to keep it simple and masculine. The pictures above show a little of my comfortable style, wearing a green sweater (which is super long so I tucked it in my belt to make it not look like a dress). Call me crazy I know, I also have it matched with my favorite American Eagle Outfitters destructed jeans and gray Converse shoes.

Syracuse is known for their severe snowy weather, but it doesn’t stop anyone to dress down for the best look. I cannot wait to share you all these latest fashions.
