    College Fashion Week: Style Therapy

    College Fashion Week has got me thinking about much more than clothes. The fall season has kept me captivated with an ambitious schedule and very little alone time. I had little time for sleep let alone giving my style the attention needed to properly evolve.

    But somewhere within all of the chaos, I got invited to New York College Fashion Week. And for the first time in awhile, I got to focus on myself as an individual.

    This year, College Fashion Week, hosted by HerCampus, partnered up with Primark to put on an amazing fashion show. Each show featured the diversified ways that you can incorporate Primark’s affordable pieces into your daily life while still ensuring you stand out. These shows re-inspired my passion for style and reminded me that I can use clothes to depict my ever changing personas.

    Before College Fashion Week, I journeyed to the King of Prussia mall to explore Primark. If you’re going to a fashion show, you have to do it right. New clothes, new city, new me.

    I stocked up on everything from shoes to cardigans. It’s been awhile since I let myself splurge and as embarrassing as it might be too admit, I spent hours in the mall. It was refreshing to be able to convert my style to fit the newest version of myself.

    For the event, I decided to keep it sleek and let my new army green joggers do most of the talking; Which I paired with lace up heels from my recent Canadian adventure. I felt unstoppable.

    Fashion Week has reminded me, why I love fashion. It is important to remember that style isn’t just a form of self expression. It can also be a form of self love and minor therapy. Mixing my style up can alter my mood, confidence and give me the extra courage needed to take on a hard day.

    It’s like my best friend always says, people may come and go but a good pair of shoes will last you a lifetime.
