STYLE GURU BIO: Valerie Hull

September 4th, 2015 at 2:00am

Hey y’all! My name is Valerie Hull and I am a sophomore majoring in Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley. This is my second semester as a Style Guru and I am so excited to continue to explore the trends and styles of the students on this unique campus.

My first semester as a Style Guru was such an incredible learning experience and it was wonderful to learn more about the fashion world as well as expand my own personal style. My personal style is still very simple and classic, but I learned that it’s okay to add a little edge.

This week’s outfit is a great t-shirt dress. Not only is this dress the perfect length for tall girls like me, (6’2″, anyone?). It is an awesome staple to keep at your fingertips this fall. They’re versatile and comfortable. Paired with an olive green convertible vest, I paired my must have staples for this season all in one outfit. This vest can be worn in so many different ways, including awesome ways to cinch it in the waist. It also has a hood that zips out of the back for when you’re feeling a little more daring, or, just cold. Birkenstocks are a must if you’re on the go- they provide great arch support as well as dress down any look.

A long strand necklace can be worn as a choker, and this website has these necklaces for under $20 dollars. Top it off with a bag you can bring anywhere and you’ve got five separate pieces that will be in and out of your closet for the next couple of months.
So, let’s get ready for a fun, and fashionable fall!
