STYLE GURU BIO: Venesa Coger

Hello everyone! My name is Venesa, and this is my first semester as a Style Guru; I couldn’t be more ecstatic about joining CollegeFashionista.

I was born in New York City, and moved to New Haven, Connecticut, at six years old. I’m a transfer student and junior at the University of Bridgeport where I’m majoring in fashion merchandising. Even though I’m fairly new, I’ve seen so many students expressing their unique and creative styles on campus that would be awesome to write articles on.

Besides majoring in fashion, I work as a stylist for Express. I have my own fashion website: venesajco.com, I sing and dance, I love taking pictures, and I’ll soon be releasing YouTube videos. During my free time, I’m always on Pinterest and Polyvore for fashion inspiration or on Snapchat and Instagram watching Keke Palmer. She’s my favorite multi-talented celebrity and inspiration. My current obsessions in fashion are: chokers (hope they never go out of style again), sneakers, and bomber jackets (in all colors please). You can find me wearing anything casual and comfy, all while looking chic. I don’t have a specific go-to style because my style is very versatile, I like to try different ideas and trends in fashion instead of limiting myself.

Due to the mixed signals winter has given me, for this look I decided to pair my high-waisted black denim with a grey cowl neck cropped sweater. I broke down the neutral tones by adding my light pink bag and matching light pink Adidas sneakers. To complete my outfit, my leather moto jacket added to my street style vibe.

I’m thankful for this opportunity of being a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista, and even more excited to be sharing this journey with you all. Come get to know me and don’t be afraid to say hello.
