Fashion Alley

The lack of classes for Ohio University students has the ability to bring about one of two appearance options: laziness or loveliness. Kylie Whittaker, a sophomore majoring in Public Relations who hopes to one day start her own PR firm in NYC, opted for the better choice. Her Ray-Ban sunglasses were able to shield the prominent Athens sun, which left plenty of room her personal style to shine through a seemingly typical Thursday afternoon.

The thing I particularly loved about Kylie’s ensemble choice was that it was resourceful and well put together. Her outfit shows that it is not always about what you have in your closet, but how you use it. This allows creativity to take control and create a fabulous outfit unlike anyone around you.

I dress how I feel when I wake up, and today I was feeling very grown up and sophisticated.”

Kylie’s style has a fashionable and unique edge to it. However, it is rounded out perfectly with feminine aspects like bright tights, heeled shoes, and skirts.

Sweater: Charlotte Russe

Shirt: Forever 21

Skirt: H&M

Tights: Forever 21

Shoes: H&M

Necklace and Ring: Forever 21

Bracelets: Walmart and Grandmother

Kylie’s favorite shopping store is H&M because it is the most fashion forward to her and fits with her personal style the best. She also likes Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, American Apparel, and thrift stores, of course. In addition to the stores, Kylie enjoys perusing websites online, such as Nastygal.com. Her personal fashion icons consist of the character Serena Van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl, Jessica Alba, and Carry Mulligan. Her fave fashion mag is Elle, because it is more relatable to and usable when it comes to style and fashion tips.

Kylie likes the idea of wearing whatever she wants and likes. Anything that makes her feel good and confident equates to the perfect outfit in her mind. She derives inspiration from other people’s fashion and creativity. When she sees a person that is not afraid to take fashion risks, she appreciates and feeds off of it.

Everyone expresses creativity differently-I do it through fashion.”

    I always loves Kylie’s fashion style whenever i see her in class. She and many others whom i have met here at OU have given me the inspiration to start finding my own style that reflects my personality.

    It’s crazy, because she looks great even when she’s dressed down, and when she dresses up, your eyes melt out of your head because they can’t accept the awesomeness that stands before them!

    As an older woman i love reading your blogs. They bring me back to my younger days when i was a young college student as yourself. I remember all the fads that came and went as i was growing up some absolutely hideous and would find it funny if you posted a thread on trends of the past. anyways i respect how ambishious you are with creating your own website and writing about something you love. As an older woman though just remember one thing for me. Dont make the one istake i made as a young adult. Spend all moments possible with your closest friends. Soon youll be an adult with responsibilities and wont have the time to do the little things you once took for granted.
    sincerely, Jean
