“I’ve always loved fashion and thought I wanted to be a designer until one of my professors made me realize that I had a stronger passion for styling,” said Myles, who goes by “Tavi.”

Tavi has assisted clients for fashion shows, photo shoots and special events. She has mastered the art of styling high-end fashion with accessible everyday style.

Tavi keeps up with fashion trends by researching on the internet, fashion magazines, apps, and social media. The fashion trends that she says people can expect for the spring are polka dots, pastels, fringe, checkered design, white sneakers and more.

Michigan State sophomore Kelsey Martin enjoys fashion and believes prints, co-ord sets, lose or oversized clothing and gender-neutral styles will popular this season.

“I saw co-ord sets were really popular in a lot of high fashion brands, specifically Gucci’s Spring 2018 line,” Martin said.

Martin explained that bright colors are always in for the spring season but that there will be an emphasis on either extremely bright versions of colors or muted versions like pastels. Classic style mules and slip on shoes will be popular opposed to the trendy choice of gladiator sandals, tie up sandals, jelly sandals, and more. “There’s been a decline in those styles anyway,” Martin said.
