STYLE GURU BIO: Lyuda Kusel

Hello! My name is Lyuda (pronounced like loo-da). Yay! I am so thrilled to be back for my second semester with CollegeFashionista! I can’t wait to get back to campus and show you guys the awesome street style we have at Indiana University this spring. After winter break, I will be entering my very last semester! How crazy?! Time really does fly. I am a Apparel Merchandising major minoring in Business and Fashion Design who will be graduating in May. I am so nervous and excited at the same time. I can’t wait to see where my journey takes me this summer!

As for my personal style, it evolves everyday. I love to mix a minimal aesthetic with a touch of bohemian flair. I like keeping an outfit simple, while still incorporating a fun, unique piece. My closet is in shades of neutrals and soft, muted colors. I prefer neutral tones since they are so easy to mix and match! For spring, my favorite item in my closet right now is my soft pink, patterned maxi dress. I can dress it up with a leather jacket, throw my hair up and add some minimal gold earrings. I can dress this look down with a graphic T-shirt knotted at the waist of the dress. Who knew a maxi could be so versatile?!

I am so excited to begin my last semester with CollegeFashionista! Stay tuned for my monthly articles. I will be showing you guys the awesome rad style we have at Indiana University!
