Style Guru Bio: Megan Timlin

My name is Megan Timlin and I'm so excited to be the new Style Guru for Colorado State University. As a Denver native who was raised playing basketball 24/7, no one ever imagined that I would end up having a career in fashion. After I was able to throw away the jersey and shorts, my new favorite hobby became putting together outfits, mixing different colors and creating new combinations This hobby became a passion, and this passion led to a collection of fashion books, many blogs that I bookmarked and the big decision to move to Poughkeepsie, NY to study Fashion Merchandising at Marist College. After a year full of many life-changing experiences, I decided I needed to finish out my college career back home. Without giving up my dream to live and work in NYC, I decided to do what I could to influence the fashion community in Colorado. Through Facebook I found an internship opportunity in Denver where I gained social media experience, did visual merchandising and took part in many different events.

In all aspects of my life I am influenced by many figures, particularly those in the industry. These include the DKNY PR girl, Nicole Loher and The Man Repeller. My style is best described as boy meets girl with a quirky flare. I love a good button-up, can't get enough of my riding boots, and always love adding a twist to my daily outfits. I find myself inspired by Tumblr, Pinterest, street style books and many personal style blogs.

Now as a sophomore at Colorado State University, I'm a double major in Fashion Merchandising and Public Relations. I'm ecstatic about the opportunity to become more involved in the fashion community on campus and looking forward to putting Colorado State on the radar. I feel that nowadays the streets are the runway. They express a creative art form and continue to inspire trends and influence how the industry evolves. As a Style Guru I hope to see, experience, and capture this creativity and each individuals’ sartorial expression.
