STYLE GURU BIO: Tiffany Cruz

May 29th, 2015 at 2:00am

Hey all you fashion lovers out there! I am Tiffany Cruz, currently going into my sophomore year of college. I am majoring in Anthropology and minoring in History and Writing.

I am extremely excited to be writing for CollegeFashionista this summer. I have loved fashion since I was very young, and it has always been an interesting concept to me. Since I am a huge history nerd, I love to explore the evolution of fashion. We started off with our wardrobes covered in animal skins, evolving to the more chic style we have adapted today. Finishing up my first year of college was exciting; I got to explore Ancient History in my History of the Ancient World class, and it gave me a great perspective on how significant the world we live in is and how beauty has constantly been changing. My personal favorite style from the past is the battle gear the gladiators wore; it has always been pretty attractive to me. After taking that course, I feel like I want to explore more about how fashion influenced society and power. These are some of the reasons I decided to become a Style Guru. I wanted to be able to express my love for fashion but also be able to tie those key elements of it to show an overall picture of the importance of fashion in people’s everyday lives.

I feel like my style has done a complete 360 since the time I have started college. I have become more confident in the way I dress. I am not afraid to try to mix different patterns and colors anymore. I tend though to gravitate towards edgy pieces with some boho or sporty twist. I love to accessorize! I feel they add dimension and personality to the simplest outfit.

My outfit today consists of my favorite T-shirt, Batman! I have multiple Batman tees, but this classic one has to be my favorite. I am also wearing my new leopard sunglasses from H&M, which is also my favorite accessory in my wardrobe. My leather jacket is also from H&M, and it is my favorite piece of clothing in my entire closet. I constantly wear it because of the crafted, detailed design on the back. It is always a conversation starter. I hardly ever wear jeans anymore, but today, I felt spontaneous and wore my comfy Forever 21 jeans. I then topped off the look with rings and my comfortable Nike sneakers.

I look forward to sharing more style information with all of you. I enjoy writing articles and have created my own website where I share different stories about myself and my life. Being able to write for CollegeFashionista will be another exciting writing experience for me that I hope all of you will enjoy!
