STYLE GURU BIO: Stephanie Wang

Hi! My name is Stephanie and I am a freshman at Pennsylvania State University. I was born and raised in California, near San Francisco. A place I consider to be a bubble of unique expression and fashion. I am a public relations major, but hope that my path in life will lead me towards a road filled with fashion, design and a surplus of clothes.

To me, fashion is the strongest medium to express yourself. There really is no better feeling than creating a fabulous outfit that shows your unique style while also showing a glimpse of the kind of person you are inside and out. Style is creating your own individuality.

I would describe my style as being bold, edgy and urban. This look sums up my style. I am wearing floral, high-waisted shorts from Tobi. It actually came as a set with a matching short sleeve crop-top, but I decided to pair it with a long sleeved, gray crop top from Forever 21 to make this look my own. I decided to layer it with a cozy, hooded cardigan from Urban Outfitters. I love this cardigan because it is cut in a super drapey fit that is perfect for layering and has a fabulous open shawl-collar in the front to add to it’s laid back vibe. My tall lace-up boots are an essential in my closet. I love wearing tall, thigh-high socks with them and in this case even a pair of black, sheer nylons to give the outfit a little something extra.

Growing up in the Bay Area, has exposed me to a freedom of expression that I don’t think is found in many other places. I have been able to confidently dress however I please and have proudly developed my own unique style throughout the years. I have loved bringing my California edge all the way across the country to Penn State, and look forward to all the new fashion trends the East Coast has in store for me.
