STYLE GURU BIO: Madison Irwin

Hello again, lovelies! I’m super excited to be back for the spring semester internship for CollegeFashionista! I love being a Style Guru because fashion writing is my passion. I get so excited when I see an outfit that strikes my fancy and I’m grateful to have the opportunity to show it off to the world.

I’m currently in my last semester of my senior year, which is a little scary, but also very exciting. Although I’m still unsure of what I’m going to do when I graduate, I know that it has to involve some type of writing or editing, preferably in fashion or arts & entertainment. My plan is to get out of New Jersey and stay in Tampa for a little bit after I graduate.

During the winter time, I tend to keep my wardrobe pretty simple by wearing lots of dark, neutral colors. Even though I hate the cold, I love the winter fashion. You’ve got leggings and boots; what more could a girl ask for? Summer is all about the bright colors and girly patterns, but winter allows you to be as edgy as you want, which is why I love it.

My outfit that I’m wearing today is pretty basic, yet trendy, due to a couple of pieces. Although I usually don’t wear brown and am not a big fan of the color in general, I think it complements the look as a whole and gives it an earthy feel. Nevertheless, I’m obsessed with the color olive green during the fall and winter, which I also incorporated in this look.

Starting with the basics, I decided to wear a plain black V-neck and a pair of black leggings to balance out the mixture of colors here. My favorite part of the outfit would have to be the olive green knit-sleeved jacket. I love the print detailing in the sleeves because it’s unique and gives the outfit a little pop of color. For shoes, I’m wearing a pair of brown chunky heeled work boots, which go with just about anything. Lastly, I paired the outfit with my mom’s brown Fendi cross-body bag that she let me borrow.
