Fashion Bloggers at Rutgers University

By Jennifer Hsieh on January 22, 2013

When it comes to finding some style inspiration, where do you look? Do you pick up fashion magazines, browse through some street style, or check out runway recaps? Personally, I’ve always loved looking at fashion or style blogs written by people like me who are in the same stage of life. It helps me to envision possible looks that I can see myself wearing. Let’s be real, there’s only a handful of people who can pull off wearing looks straight off the runway to their 8 am Intro to Philosophy class.

Inspiration can come as close as your own campus! Being such a diverse and populated campus, Rutgers University is home to so many fashion and personal style bloggers ranging from the trendy fashionista, the urban designer, to the couture lover. Check out just a few below and feel free to share your own finds in the comments. 

Fashion/Personal Style Blogs

Fashion Pirate – Double majoring in Journalism and Gender studies, Arabelle is a fashion blogger who describes her style as “dominatrix librarian”. Her writing is full of passion and her ever-changing style ensures that you’ll never get bored of her darker aesthetic. (pictured above left)

Aetherlily – Melanie is a 21-year-old personal style blogger who is studying towards her degree in Linguistics. She’s been blogging for almost two years now and her looks have a whimsical feel which are usually paired with beautiful locations. (pictured above right)

JennifHsieh – Oh, is it okay to promote my own blog? Yes? Good. I’m an alumni from Rutgers myself and I blog about my personal style and my day-to-day adventures as a new graduate in New York City. Looking through my archives you can see me posing and making a fool out of myself in various Rutgers locations.

Fashion Magazines
