Well College Fashionistas and Fashionistos, it's the summertime! Summer is the most relaxing and exciting time of the year for most students. We finally have time to catch up with old friends and regroup before the next semester. This summer I am studying and interning abroad in New York City. I will be embarking on new adventures, new fashions, and new trends in a totally new scene. I hope you all will enjoy what I find on the city streets.
First, a little about me. I am going to be a junior at Indiana University this fall. I am studying Apparel Merchandising and Business, and all my life I have been an artist. Whether it is with macaroni noodles and pipe cleaners or the more traditional paints and pencils, I love to create! Today, fashion is my primary outlet for creativity, where clothing and accessories have become my medium for artistic expression.
To me, fashion should be a reflection of your personality and character. My one rule is to always consider your body type and personality when building an outfit. Stick to pieces and trends that will showcase your own beauty and creativity. I personally love classics, those like Audrey Hepburn and Coco Chanel who will remain undeniably chic. However, I find most of my inspiration is drawn from those who are fashion risk takers. Fashion should be fun! I tend to enjoy pieces with creative features, like sparkling embellishments or layers of ruffles. With every outfit, I mix patterns, add pops of color and pile on the jewelry. This summer I will keep you Fashionistas/Fashionistos updated with style tips and updates about new fashion trends from New York City!
