Fall Style

To help during the busier seasons Maplewood hires student interns to assist with different parts of the boutique within the student’s interest. The summer interns for 2021 are college students Maya Highsmith, Lauren Lieser, and Mckenzie Uhrig. Highsmith, a student at Kent State University (KSU), will oversee merchandising and pricing for Maplewood. Lieser, another KSU student oversees the social media accounts, photo styling and thrifting for the Pre-Owned rack. While University of Akron student, McKenzie Uhrig, manages the fashion blog, email campaigns, and updates the store’s website.

This is the second part of a three-part series of Style Guides curated by Maplewood’s summer interns. This week Lauren Lieser styles a fall outfit featuring new arrivals and items from Maplewood’s Pre-Owned collection. Lieser (who is set to graduate in December of 2022 from KSU) is a Fashion Merchandising major with minors in Fashion Media, Sustainability, and Marketing. Lieser will be expanding her horizons into the Italian fashion sphere while she studies abroad in Florence, Italy in the Fall of 2022. When imagining her future career, she said,
“After graduation, I plan on moving to a bigger city and pursuing a career in the fashion industry; I’m particularly interested in working with a social media/creative team for a fashion company.”   
Lieser’s style inspiration stems from her love for thrifting vintage items and repurposing them uniquely to her (or for Maplewood). Her ability to find these distinctive vintage pieces is what led Maplewood to give her the responsibility of buying for the thrift rack at their Reverie location in Cuyahoga Falls.
Her most notable contribution to the thrift rack has been her hand-distressed cutoff vintage denim short collection (which she thrifts and repurposes herself for Maplewood).

When styling a fall outfit Lieser started with a pair of thrifted wide-legged olive pants from Maplewood’s Pre-Owned collection. The wide-legged pant creates a longer, slimmer, and more dynamic silhouette that can be easily adapted into any style. Lieser then paired the pants with the new cream multi-colored striped sweater from Maplewood’s fall collection at Reverie. This cozy sweater’s warm color combination is perfect to make you stand out in the cooler weather of the fall season. The trendy outfit is a chic, casual look that can be added to every modern fashionista’s closet.
