STYLE GURU BIO: Stephanie Schrepfer

Hello Fashionistas/os! My name is Stephanie Schrepfer and I am a junior Marketing major at Illinois State University. I am so excited to start this journey with CollegeFashionista as a Style Guru this summer. A lot of my creativity stems from fashion and I am thrilled to finally get the opportunity to put it to good use. You may be thinking, how does Marketing relate to the fashion world? Well in a nutshell, fashion is how you market yourself. In other words, fashion is a HUGE part of Marketing. Each individual, whether they choose to or not, has a style, and my hope is that throughout my time with CollegeFashionista, I can inspire others to express their own personal style in a way they see fit.

I would describe my own style as bohemian and relaxed as well as girly. I like to experiment with various prints and colors as much as possible. Some brands I truly love are Free People, Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie. As a college student, I am not always able to afford their clothes, but I can certainly admire them for their delicate features and flowy shapes among other things.

While I love fall/winter fashion, summer is quickly emerging and I couldn’t be happier. It will be nice to see less coats and more of those summer staples that we love. I’m looking forward to seeing all that is in store for me these next few months.

All in all, fashion is about more than just clothes. It’s creative, self expressive and truly an art.
