Hey fellow Fashionistas/os! I’m Zaria, or Z for the sake of simplicity. I’m a third-year at the University of Florida, studying marketing and retail. This will be my first semester as a Style Guru with CollegeFashionista and I am so so so excited to finally be a part of a community like this. If I had to pick a retailer that conveyed who I am as a person, it would be Urban Outfitters.

I have always believed that what you wear is a direct extension of self. How you convey that self can change each day and is inspired by your mood. My “self” can range from soft-grunge one day, to trendy grandma the next, to basic hipster the next. So, style is enigmatic and does not have to adhere to any rules. I am continually inspired by what I see others wearing on campus, what looks celebs are trying out, and how people are tackling fashion on social media. I love taking that inspiration and using it to broaden my wardrobe.

This particular look was spurred by the craziness that is Florida weather. I paired this super cozy oversized sweater with super distressed boyfriend jeans. I am currently living for the fishnet trend, so decided to throw a simple pair of high-waisted, black fishnets underneath for some edgy detail. Finish this outfit off with a pair of simple, black booties and you’re set for a Florida “winter” day.

Hopefully you all appreciate this look half as much as I do (because I basically live in it!). Be sure to follow me on any social media platform to stay up to date with my posts and other happenings. I can’t wait to connect with as many of you lovelies as I can! Stay #RAD.
