STYLE GURU BIO: Olivia Corcoran

Hello there! My name is Olivia. I am a junior studying public relations, fashion studies, and design at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. I have always loved expressing myself through creative outlets and have meddled in everything from caligraphy to videography. Still, ever since my mother allowed me to dress myself, fashion has been my most consistent channel for artistry. It’s safe to say, I am beyond excited to write about my love of fashion for CollegeFashionista this semester!

I strongly believe that fashion is a privilege and that being able to express yourself through dress is freedom. If you can access fashion, you can become whatever you want. You can express your emotions, whether you’re overjoyed, content, or somber. You can create your own style and have your own fashion niche. When you have access to fashion, you are given the freedom to grow and to create. With fashion, I believe everyone becomes their own masters of creativity. And who doesn’t love being their own boss in some way?

On this particular day, I decided to create a casual and cozy look to stay warm in the chilly Minnesota weather. I chose to wear my Adidas tennis shoes for maximum comfort and casual style. I absolutely love the choker trend and added this black, textured choker for a little pop. For the perfect mix of function and fashion, I threw on this warm, gray coat to finish off the look.

I hope you guys love this outfit! Feel free to follow me on social media if you would like updates on my latest posts. I would love to connect with each and every one of you!
