STYLE GURU BIO: Olivia Jackson

Hey Fashionista/os! I’m Olivia Jackson and I’m so excited to be a Style Guru with CollegeFashionista for a second semester! I’m a rising senior at Williams College, double majoring in art history and English.

During my first semester as a Style Guru, I’ve learned a lot about describing outfits and looks, incorporating fashion terminology, as well as vivid and extensive detail, while maintaining my own voice! I’ve really enjoyed thinking through how to piece together a look, trying to keep things simple while making a bold statement. This summer, my looks have consisted of classy, more traditional pieces with simple and elegant accessories. I’ve also featured summer staples, showcasing the ease and comfort of the perfect romper or pairing white jeans with a bright, unique top; both ensembles have great versatility and can be worn at numerous occasions, from brunch to a girl’s night out!

For this semester, I would like to break away from my reliance on sophisticated, preppy looks and shift towards eccentric patterns and prints, exotic colors, and unique accessories. Fall is the perfect time to pair your favorite jeans with a cute, comfortable sweater or a light jacket with an infinity scarf, but there is certainly room for loud statements and unconventionality.

In this look, I decided to wear my favorite Lilly Pulitzer romper with a cinched waistline; this romper is fun and comfortable and pairs perfectly with simple accessories! I wore two Alex and Ani bracelets, pretty bangles that complete any look, and can even be a conversation piece, as they feature birthstones and other personal charms. Additionally, to complement the gold bracelets, I wore a gold-embellished hair tie that makes a basic ponytail look sophisticated, chic and classy! Lastly, I wore silver Ralph Lauren thong sandals — a  simple choice that complements the romper, and keeps the attention focused on its bold, bright print!

I can’t wait for another awesome semester, observing and writing about evolving trends and showcasing chic Fashionista/os on campus!
