STYLE GURU BIO: Savannah Slaton

Hello fellow Fashionistas! My name is Savannah Slaton; I have just finished my fourth semester at Kent State University as a fashion merchandising student. I am so thrilled to be a Style Guru this semester! I am excited to start writing about the trends and new styles I see around my own city this summer!

I have had a love for fashion since I was in elementary school and seeing my dreams beginning to unravel is so exciting for me. There are many things that have been an inspiration to my style. People that have made significant impacts in my life have definitely inspired me, but most of my inspiration for my style comes from the street style of fellow fashion lovers.

This upcoming year I get to spend the whole year studying away. The first semester I will spend studying in Florence, Italy and the second semester in New York City. I could not be more excited to spend the year experiencing so many different cultures and all of their different trends. It will be a year to remember.

My style is very versatile. My style includes the majority neutral colors; I do throw in some other colors here and there. One thing that I have loved to do for the past few years is go exploring, so flexibility and comfort are an important aspect to my personal style. During the summer I pretty much live in high-waisted shorts and dresses. During the colder months I will lean towards more sweaters and turtlenecks the majority of the time as they can go with just about anything. Today I wore this really simple and easy denim dress and I paired it with some snakeskin sneakers to make things just a little bit more fun. In the summer I almost always add a hat to my outfit because they keep my hair out of my face and the sun out of my eyes. To finish off my outfit I layer a few gold necklaces and add a little arm candy to pull everything together. Now I am ready for anything!

I am so excited to be writing with CollegeFashionista this summer and I can not wait to share my fabulous finds with all of you!
