Fall fashion can be found on a budget, thanks to People’s StyleWatch

Just in time for fall fashion, Boston University welcomed a new edition to the campus; People’s StyleWatch celebrity stylist Joiee Thorpe.

Why was she at BU?  It was all thanks to Boston University’s “Her Campus” correspondent Summer Ford.

Summer and her colleague Amy Alexander are juniors at Boston University and are first-year correspondents for BU’s ultimate college guide for girls, “Her Campus.” The online collegiate guide to life was founded by Harvard grad students and has everything a girl in college needs, from how to avoid the freshman 15 to campus style do’s and don’ts.

Summer and Amy’s main goal behind their kickoff event Sept. 16 was “to bring style to the BU campus and push people towards fall fashion.” This was definitely achieved as students rushed from class to get to the student union building, which Joiee had transformed into a fashion studio/salon. As soon as students walked through the door, Joiee was waiting with racks of brand-name clothing, the hottest new jewelry, and accessories, and shoes fit for every occasion.

Students were given a one-on-one tutorial from Joiee on how to dress for fall in brand names and for a good price.

Another unexpected treat for the students were hair stylists from Tresemme, which had a mini hair salon set up for students. Introducing “over 1,000 different products” and giving one-on-one tutorials, two stylists showed students the how-to on quick and easy hairstyles for early morning classes.

Although this event was directed toward college students, all high school senior girls currently applying to college should tune in. Saving every penny for college is crucial for seniors, but most girls plan to start their freshman year of college with a new look. What better way to do this than to get a new wardrobe on a good budget?
