STYLE GURU BIO: Rachel Kaplan

My name is Rachel and I’m a junior at Kent State University majoring in Fashion Merchandising, Public Relations and Marketing. I am so excited to be returning to CollegeFashionista as a Style Guru this summer and to be able to share my love of fashion with all of you.

I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t wait for the warm weather of summer. There’s nothing I love more than grabbing an iced coffee and strolling through Central Park or wandering through the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Since I’ll be in New York City interning again this summer, I will be able to share the chic city style with all of you and I hope you are all excited as I am. By the way, first thing I’m doing when I get to the city is seeing the Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology exhibit at the Met Gala.

Some of my favorite pieces for this summer include off-the-shoulder tops, denim skirts, laced-up sandals and cropped denim jeans. This season, you will definitely see me embracing the ’90s trend or continuing my obsession with effortless bohemian ensembles. Therefore, as I usually am, I’m lusting over everything Free People for summer. There’s nothing better than wearing a flirty tunic that keeps you both cool and fashion-forward during the summer. Some of my favorite accessories right now are chokers (you can never have enough) and a chic pair of sunglasses.

Stay cool, Fashionistas/os, and look out for that #RAD summer city style.
