STYLE GURU BIO: Roshni Kamta

Sup fellow CollegeFashionistas/os! My name is Roshni (Rosh-Knee). I’m a girl who used to love wearing designers such as Bobby Jack, Aéropostale and Justice. Luckily, I have moved on to thrift stores, Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters.

I started off my college career in New York City and that is where my style blossomed. I took what I learned about style from New York to central New Jersey. I am now a junior at Rutgers University, studying Communications and Public Relations. I was drawn to the field of Public Relations because there are so many different ways to communicate with people, just like there are many different ways to style an outfit.

I like to describe myself as the brown version of Carrie Bradshaw with humor like Mindy Kaling. I started a blog during my sophomore year about all the unbelievable miscellaneous things that happened to me in New York City. From New York bar nights to the sale-crazed customers at Abercrombie and Fitch. By starting a blog I developed a passion for writing.

I want to say my sense of style just grew out of convenience. I really wear skirts and dresses only because I don’t like wearing pants. However, if pants are mandatory, jumpers are my go to because you don’t have to find a shirt to go with jeans! And to top it off I add a bomber or a jean jacket to my outfit.

As for accessories I like to keep it simple with just a watch. My favorite watchmakers are Kate Spade, Fossil and Burberry. These makers like to keep telling time simple but chic. In this post I am wearing my rose gold Burberry watch. The rose gold goes well with my floral shorts and lace green top.

Thrift stores are my absolute favorite. I have found key fashion pieces in thrift stores, like the tan fringed jacket that I am wearing in this CollegeFashionista post. When I thrift I mainly look for layering pieces like leather or any kind of jacket. Like the saying goes, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”

This is my first semester with CollegeFashionista and I am excited to be a part of such a stylish community! I hope you guys enjoy my posts!
