STYLE GURU BIO: Melany Rodriguez

Hello fashion goers! My name is Melany and I am so incredibly excited for my second season as a Style Guru. I’ll be a fourth year student at Rutgers University majoring in Communications and Public Relations.  Ever since I could remember fashion has always been a part of my life. From dressing up as a little girl, to figuring out ways to spunk up my uniform throughout my elementary and middle school years.  I now take every day as a chance to be whoever I want to be.  My mood depicts many of my outfits. I can be dressed head to toe in pink one day, and the next rock an all-black outfit. My style is super versatile and varies according to the weather, time of day, and event.

My featured outfit is a very laid back but fun look.  Summer time calls for errand running and completing projects left and right. It’s so important for me to be comfortable throughout the day while at the same time keeping a semi-dressy vibe. One of my favorite trends is pairing a cool pair of sneakers with a skirt or dress.  Here I’m wearing my absolute favorite pair of tennis shoes, which then I pair with a slim fitting skirt making the perfect combination of laid back but still very chic. The ultimate staple to finish any outfit is a killer jacket. I usually go with a leather one or a bomber, both are super trendy and comfortable.

I can’t wait to share summer tips with you all as a style guru. Style is about expressing yourself and your mood on a daily basis. It’s so important to stay true to you and be comfortable with what you wake up and want to be that morning.  My key motto is to always have fun and be you!
