STYLE GURU BIO: Maddie McDaniel

January 6th, 2016 at 2:10am

Hello Fashionistas and Fashionistos! My name is Maddie, and I’m a sophomore at Salisbury University. This will be my first semester as a Style Guru, and I am more than excited to showcase the many fashionistas/os on my campus.

Fashion has always been something I’ve liked to experiment and have fun with. If I had to sum up my style in one word, it would be eclectic. The idea of mixing textures and styles is something I love to do. Pairing feminine pieces such as a flowy blouse with a more masculine item, like Dr. Martens gives an outfit the perfect amount of balance and flair. I think the most important thing in fashion is finding what you feel the most comfortable and confident in. My life doesn’t always allow me to put together a “perfect outfit,” therefore I tend to gravitate towards staple pieces that are tried and trues. I believe that a right pair of black jeans are life changing, a leather jacket can drastically transform any look and the correct shoes can make an outfit.

I recently studied in London, England for a semester. My time there was nothing short of a Fashionista’s dream. While there, I spent every moment absorbing the very unique European style and of course, shopping my favorite British and European brands! Although I’m having major withdraws from afternoon tea and Oxford Street, I am so excited to be back at Salisbury to find some Fashionistas/os!

I cannot wait for this semester to start! Cheers to a semester filled with lots of style and fun!
