STYLE GURU BIO: Makenna Kovach

Hello fellow Fashionistas/os! My name is Makenna Kovach and this is my sixth semester as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista. I am so stoked to be a part of the team and share all of my insights in the college fashion world.

Growing up I was considered fashion-forward, even my Pampers had style. My mom taught me everything I know about fashion or as parents say, “being hip.” I’ve always had a keen eye for clothing and how it is put together. Many of my friends count on me for styling advice. I’ve been told I see fashion as an art, and I always catch a good deal. I get more excited when I shop my favorite brands than when I see a gorgeous guy the first day of economics class. The Devil Wears Prada turned me to the bright side of fashion, or perhaps the dark side of spending.

I find myself surfing Pinterest, online fashion blogs, my favorite clothing stores, and scrolling through fashion Instagrams every day in order to discover the latest runway trends and style inspiration. My style idols are Coco Chanel, Blake Lively, and blog enthusiast Paola Alberdi who is creator of Blank Itinerary. “No rules” is my style motto. I love chic minimalism with an edge. Similar to my mood ring, my style changes every day. You’ll often find me strutting various looks. In this look, my Rag and Bone seersucker suit is the main piece. I decided to pair the jumpsuit with GGDB sneakers to keep the look casual. My black crossbody is a key part of the outfit, and the black sunnies ties in the retro feel.

My best friend and I have come together to create our own blog which focuses on style trends across the country. No matter what time of day, I’ll be constantly researching to keep you up-to-date on style cultures.
