STYLE GURU BIO: Tiffany Wong

Hi! This is Tiff, back again for her second semester with CollegeFashionista! I am currently a student in my final year at the University of Toronto, pursuing a double major in psychology and media studies with a minor in music. I love everything media related, including and not limited to radio, television, music and photography.

As stated from my bio from last semester, I would describe my style as mostly casual or grunge and rarely girly; I would usually just throw on a graphic T-shirt and some denim shorts and just walk out of the house. However, people do change for several reasons. Over the summer, I got an internship and had been working in an office environment, which made me realize that I have to start adding some diversity in styling my outfits on a daily basis. Feminine style was not really my thing in the past, as I usually went with cool color tones such as black, gray, blue and street-style items like denim, leather, and plaid that are comfortable and easy to match.

For this summer, I chose a more feminine and neutral tone style to show that I am a humble student intern. I started my outfit wearing a light gray crochet-trimmed tank and a cherry blossom floral print skort, both from Forever 21. The two neutral colors match perfectly, and the splice crochet blends the two colors well and provides an interesting detail. The light pink cherry blossom on the skort is one of my favorite prints from my wardrobe, as it reminds me of spring in Tokyo, and the pink color adds a little bit of warm vibe and uniqueness to the neutral look.

Working an office job in summer can easily make you sick from the sudden changes in temperatures walking in and out of the office with air conditioning compared to the high heat outside , so for this neutral outfit I added on a beige cardigan from Urban Planet. This heart pendant necklace from Swarovski is my personal favorite jewelry piece that my parents gifted me on my birthday; it is timeless and adds a perfect hint of sparkle to basically any outfit and any occasion. I wear it all the time as a simple personal touch. I also accessorize my outfit with a brown faux leather cross-body bag gifted by one of my best friends. It remains one of my favorite bags to date because its simplicity adds another layer of earth tone to the look. Last but not least, I complete my outfit with a pair of strappy short gladiator sandals because who doesn’t love the little braided straps and studs on it? It’s all in the details!

This is my second semester writing for CollegeFashionista, and I would say it has been a pleasant and rewarding experience. I hope you can see my improvements in writing for fashion, and I cannot wait to share more of my posts with you all!
