Style Guru Bio: Cate Young

Hey Fashionistas! My name is Cate and I'm a Photojournalism major at Boston University minoring in Spanish. I’m originally from Trinidad and Tobago in the West Indies, so New England is a big change for me. I love being exposed to the sophisticated fashion in Boston and I get so much inspiration for my personal style from the people here. My ultimate goal is to be a major fashion photographer and magazine editor, so I think that the experience that working with CollegeFashionista is giving me is allowing me to better understand the complexities of the fashion industry.

My personal style is fairly casual with what I like to call 'selective sophistication'. I'm one to dress more for comfort than style, so constructing stylish outfits that don't leave me feeling restricted is a fun, daily challenge. I like to be a little eccentric and uncoordinated because it better reflects my constantly changing moods. I try to wear at least one stand-out piece with each outfit. All it takes it a beautiful ring or the right pair of shoes to make any outfit memorable. Right now, I can't leave my house without wearing all my rings. It such an easy way to make an amazing statement and stand out from the fashion masses.

I've come to respect fashion as the art form that it is, and to appreciate the work and dedication that designers put into their brands. Some people think that fashion is frivolous, but I've realized that fashion is a form of self expression, and is simply another avenue through which I can present myself to the world. Can't wait to bring you sizzling styles!
