STYLE GURU BIO: Marianna Bojkewycz

Happy summer fellow Fashionistas/os! I’m Marianna Bojkewycz, and I’m so excited to be returning for my second time as a Style Guru! I’m about to be a sophomore at Loyola University Chicago, studying finance and channeling my creativity through my love for fashion. My family is filled with strong and stylish women, so it’s only natural that this passion has passed on to me.

My style is quite difficult to label—it’s kind of like a bouquet of various flowers, where each is unique on its own but become a fascinating kaleidoscope when put together. One thing I can certainly say is everything I wear I love 110 percent. Keeping up with the trends isn’t as big of a priority for me as really appreciating the beauty behind my fashion choices. I believe that fashion is one of the greatest art forms, and I revel in watching how other style icons, like Zoë Kravitz and Lainy Hedaya, emit their self-expression.

I think this outfit exemplifies the standout elements of my style: a mélange of simple, yet high-end pieces that creates a fun look. A white oversized Zara top, cute Citizens of Humanity denim shorts, blue suede ALDO booties and some dangling earrings can really make a statement all while keeping you comfortable during those super-hot summer days!

I love fashion in the summer because there are so many trends you can play with. With zero weather restrictions, you really have the opportunity to unleash your trademark style. I am beyond excited to showcase all of the savvy and eclectic fashions of summertime Chicago with all of you!
