STYLE GURU BIO: Samantha Neira

Hey, what’s up, hello! My name is Samantha Neira. I am a freshman studying fashion merchandising and management at Philadelphia University. I have experience writing for my personal blog, so I am honored to have the opportunity to write for CollegeFashionista this spring. I have always loved fashion, from sketching and sewing to producing and styling.

I completely disagree with the idea that you need to subscribe to one certain type of style or follow fads and trends. I find that the best looks come together when they express the person wearing them. Ultimately, fashion is an expression and should have no limits. I believe that you do not need to be loyal to one certain type of style either. In fact, I think the most interesting looks are ones that are ever changing. For example, my style ranges anywhere from classic to retro (and I would not want to have it any other way!)

I wanted to share this look from a previous blog post of mine. I took a simple summery dress and modified it into a fall look. For this ensemble I took the mustard shift dress, which has cutouts on the side, and added maroon knee high socks and my favorite booties. For the final touch I added this chunky necklace adorned with maroon beads, which really tied together the whole look.

I am excited to continue sharing looks with you all this spring. To get updates on my latest posts, make sure to go follow my social media! I would love to interact with you.
