STYLE GURU BIO: Lauren Batson

May 26th, 2015 at 2:00am

Hey Fashionistas/os! My name is Lauren Batson, and I am super excited to be a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista! I am currently a junior at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, and I am majoring in Journalism and Electronic Media with a minor in Studio Art.

Growing up with a younger sister, I have always enjoyed having her to experiment with new clothing styles and makeup techniques. Picking out her outfits and doing her hair and makeup has always been one of my favorite things to do. Throughout my life, I have always enjoyed incorporating my own personal style into my outfits, and I cannot wait to share some of this with you!

Ever since I was 10 years old, I have loved photography. Two years ago, I decided to make it my profession. I pursue this love of photography not only through my personal life but also in my professional life. My excitement for photography has only grown over the past 10 years, and I am so excited to take my passion and incorporate it with my love of fashion and style.

One of my signature aspects in creating any type of outfit is combining neutrals and solids with a pattern or a pop of color. I always say you can never own too much black, and everything looks classier with wedges. I combine girly and athletic with preppy and hipster styles to create my own personal twist.

I’m not here to tell you what to wear. I am here to help you with figuring out your own personal style and turning them into your own. Check out my street style posts every Tuesday for advice and the latest fashion trends!
