STYLE GURU BIO: Miranda Jones

A new semester is here! I’m so excited to be doing CollegeFashionista again and to see what great styles this fall brings. This is my third semester as a Style Guru at Illinois State University where I am a Fashion Merchandising major. When I grow up I want to be a celebrity stylist and I also want to travel a ton but we’ll see where life takes me.

Some things you should know about me are that I love people watching, clothes, scrolling through Tumblr or Instagram and I watch way too much YouTube. I don’t think I can go a day without watching at least one video. I’m obsessed with fashion, beauty and comedy videos. I think it’s starting to become a problem.

As you can probably tell from my outfit, I’m not really into wearing a lot of color. Seriously, my wardrobe is pretty much all black. For this outfit I chose a button-down shirt dress (score! It has pockets!) that I paired with my absolute favorite lace up shoes at the moment. I added the hat as my accessory because I thought it gave the outfit an extra cool factor that takes it up a notch from being too basic. Right now, I’m loving the edgy look and playing with proportions. One of my favorite things to do over the summer is wear high-waisted shorts with a cool looking crop top and layer a long cardigan or kimono over it.

This semester I hope to take more great pictures of the Fashionistas/os on Illinois State’s campus. It’s going to be a great semester!
