Style Guru Bio: Kellen Fitzgerald

I am a twenty-year-old style smörgåsbord from New Hampshire with an affinity for photography, fashion, and collaging. I am a Communications major and a Visual Arts and Business double minor at Fordham University as well as a member of the women’s track team. As I begin my fifth semester with College Fashionista and my second as one of College Fashionista’s Head Style Gurus, I not only have the privilege of expanding upon my own personal style, but I also have the opportunity to be inspired by those we feature on the site.

In terms of my own personal style, I am a firm believer in the vintage mantra, "less is more." I find beauty in effortless elegance and sophisticated simplicity. I have a weakness for stripes, ballet flats, and button-downs, and find that the unique character of an outfit lies within subtle and telling details. Being a college student in New York City, I am constantly learning from those around me how to personalize the current trends in an affordable way. Any window-display-worthy outfit can be achieved with resourcefulness and creative thought. To achieve balance within a look, I like to mix classic cuts with contemporary pieces, or trim androgynous fashions with a feminine touch. Every era and genre of fashion has something to offer, and by transforming the old and embracing the new, one can transform an everyday ensemble into a truly unique art.

To give and receive inspiration is an opportunity to be valued, and by sharing the charisma and creativity of the College Fashionistas at Fordham, I hope to instill this same appreciation in our readers.
