Style Guru Bio: Katie Bachler

Hello! I am Katie Bachler, a sophomore at Elon University studying Strategic Communications and I am so excited to be coming back for another semester with CollegeFashionista. I had the pleasure of representing Elon this summer in Chicago, where I live, and showing readers looks I spotted in the streets of Chicago. However, this semester excites me because I get to show the world what Elon University's style is all about. My posts will be on students on campus who truly encompass the definition of a CollegeFashionista. Elon's student body is full of well-dressed young people who are passionate about their school and I am hoping my posts will capture all that. I will strive to illustrate a variety of trends and styles while writing for “STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK.” 

My own personal style is all about variety. I love to change up my style depending on my mood or the weather. Usually my outfits are all about classic, easy feminine looks. But I also cannot resist a good thrift shop T-shirt or a cool interesting headband. I love to add eclectic pieces because I think it adds visual interest and personality. I also love neon colors and sparkles to a fault so I am going to try and steer away from my go-to looks and create newer, more mature styles. 

I know to the working world the year begins in January but to me it's all about late August. Coming back to school means new students, new classes, new housing arrangments, new friends and a new season for fashion. Lucky for us living in North Carolina, we will not have to ween ourselves off sundresses and jean shorts just yet. But with the summer officially coming to a close, it is crucial to adapt your wardrobe to keep you warm but also stylish. A new season is also a perfect excuse to adapt one's personal style. So before heading back to campus, don't skimp on a cool new scarf or a funky jacket because that is the material (literally) of a very promising and interesting wardrobe. 

Style is all about taking risks and showing the world what you're all about. I know I am going to try and steer away from the Nike shorts and put more effort into my everyday looks. With a new “year” in store comes new resolutions and I encourage you all to make yours. Until then I look forward to seeing all of your personal styles come to life on campus and in the classroom.
