STYLE GURU BIO: Elizabeth Willis

Innovative physicist Albert Einstein once stated, “Creativity is contagious, pass it on.” Although I certainly do not deem myself a science wizard, this ideology finds relevance in many facets of my life. As an incoming senior majoring in Psychology and Spanish, creativity works itself into my academic persona. Outside of the classroom, it manifests itself through my ongoing love for fashion and all it encompasses.

My passion for fashion started in my younger years with a special place in my heart for my dress up bin. I have since transitioned from my bin of miscellaneous fake pearls, Minnie Mouse inspired heels and everything sequin to a more eclectic closet. However, my affinity for creatively accessorizing and stylizing certainly hasn’t phased out with age.

My present-day closet represents a sort of hectic chaos of animal printed ballet flats, low backed dresses and what some might consider an excessive accumulation of skinny jeans. One thing is for sure; infatuation with fashion certainly doesn’t discriminate. This mantra takes precedence through shopping around at vast department stores and hole-in-the-wall boutiques, along with choosing items from all different price points. I pride myself on owning a diversely contented closet. Some of my most adored splurge pieces from BCBGMAXAZRIA and French Connection hang alongside my favorite sweaters from Free People or Bloomingdale’s sale-racked distressed jeggings.

The inventiveness in my wardrobe often portrays itself through selecting pieces that deviate from the norm. I strive on incorporating items into my attire that encompass their own original flare and subtly deviate from the standard piece. A unique addition of a studded cuff or leather-trimmed collar can often make a monumental difference. It all comes down to your individual take on fashion, because creativity is always in style.
