STYLE GURU BIO: Lauren Lyford

Hello world and fellow college Fashionistas and Fashionistos, My Name is Lauren Lyford! I’m kicking it in the ZOU with my fellow tigers at The University of Missouri as a junior. I am studying Textile and Apparel Management, Fashion and Apparel marketing and Merchandising. And I am beyond stoked to be writing for CollegeFashionista for a second semester! I am from Kansas City, Missouri and as most Midwesterners I can not wait to get out of Missouri and explore the rest of the world.

Some fun facts about me you’ll need to know for the future when I am married to Niall Horan. I am a music, fashion and Supernatural addict. My favorite band is The Maine, who I have been lucky enough to meet, hang out with and even photograph several times. I am obsessed with Lou Teasdale who is a stylist and columnist that works with many celebrities such as One Direction ( if you haven’t guessed already yes I love One Direction and yes their hiatus is tearing me apart inside). Anyway, back to Lou Teasdale her style is so punky glam and is what I am all about.

So for this outfit, which has recently been one of my favorites I tried to create one of Lou’s signature looks. Some Dungarees or better known as overalls, with a thin striped crop top underneath. To break up all of the black I tied a plaid shirt around my waist, because what outfit isn’t complete without a plaid shirt? I mean honestly. And lastly a pair of funky sunnies to top it all off!

I can’t wait to meet all of you insanely stylish people!
