STYLE GURU BIO: Lindsey Damour

Hello, Fashionistas and Fashionistos! My name is Lindsey Damour and I am currently a freshman majoring in Fashion Merchandising at the beautiful University of Delaware. I cannot think of a better way to kick off my second semester of college than having the opportunity to write for CollegeFashionista as a Style Guru.

Ever since I can remember, I have always been very particular about how I present myself to others. Whether that be through my schoolwork, through my actions or through the outfit that I am wearing. An outfit is so much more than just pieces of clothing to me, it’s a physical representation of my personality. So when I meet a stranger on the street, they already know a lot about me just from looking at my outfit.

My go-to outfit for class during the winter months would easily be leggings, an oversized sweater or tunic, a vest, riding boots and a statement necklace. I like to mix solids with patterns and then pull the outfit together through something like a necklace or scarf. Color is my best friend, which would explain why my favorite brand is, hands down, Lilly Pulitzer. Other brands I often shop are: J.Crew, kate spade, Cole Haan and Urban Outfitters.

I truly understood just how much I enjoyed fashion through the development of different social media websites. In addition to drawing inspiration from my surroundings, much of my inspiration for outfits comes from Tumblr, Pinterest, Polyvore and Instagram.

I cannot put into words how excited I am to scope out Delaware’s most fashionable students this spring. I have complete confidence in that my classmates will fall nothing short of risk-takers. I look forward to a great semester ahead filled with fashion!
