Hello there Fashionistas!

My name is Maya Efrat and I go to Kent State University in Kent, OH. I am beyond thrilled to be starting my time as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista and exploring all of the different trends I see Fashionista/os rocking around the Kent State University campus!

So a little bit about me, I’ve only lived in the United States for the past four years. I moved to a suburb of the city of Boston, MA from Israel in the summer of 2012, and now I go to school in Kent, OH! I would definitely say that I consider those three places my three homes. I am always so fascinated by how different trends take on different forms in different parts of the country and the world, and how, at the end of the day, the different forms of each trend have the same root. Take the crop top I am wearing in these photos for example. Combining the crop top trend and the off-the-shoulder trend with the crochet detailing on the sleeves, gives you have a whole new adorable garment taken to another level.

I would describe my style as simple, yet chic. As you can see, I am a big fan of pairing high-waisted trousers with crop tops; but not necessarily your typical high-waisted jeans with a cropped T-shirt look (although I do wear those more often than not). I like keeping up with the latest trends and trying out new things that I wouldn’t wear normally wear. A great example is the pants I am wearing here, they are meant to be pleated culottes (knee to mid-calf length which I do not normally wear), however, being the little 5’2” person that I am, they fit me as ankle-length pants, which I am actually a big fan of.

Some of my favorite things (aside from fashion, of course) are coffee, puppies, trying new DIYs, Chipotle burrito bowls, going to see live concerts (most recently twenty one pilots A.K.A. my favorite band. Fun fact: I am actually listening to their music as I am writing this) and watching superhero movies (specifically Marvel movies). So in conclusion, if you drink coffee with me while watching a Marvel movie and eating Chipotle, we can probably be best friends.

Well, that is all for now. I really hope that you enjoy reading my articles and hopefully take some inspiration from them because I promise you I am going to have the best time writing them and taking photos.
