Everybody loves to be noticed, and this Fashionista without a doubt screams bold, bright and absolutely beautiful! There’s nothing better than a burst of bright color to liven up any winter morning. The start of a new year brings new year’s resolutions, and offers a starting point to switch things up and to make some positive changes. If bold color statements were outside of your comfort zone in 2012, try livening up 2013 with neon accents, daring accessories and bold trends to bring some new life into the new year and into a new you!
Name: Danielle Janela
Major: Studio Art
CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your personal style?
Danielle Janela: My personal style would probably be fun, preppy and colorful.
CF: What are some of the staple pieces in your wardrobe?
DJ: Some staple pieces are definitely my Sperry Top-Siders, a long neutral colored button-up sweater and a good selection of fun necklaces.
CF: Who or what inspires your style? Do you think your major influences your look?
DJ: My major in studio art would definitely be a great influence on my style because every outfit I pick out is like creating a little piece of art. I get to play around with contrasting colors and patterns, which is similar to what I do when creating something like a painting. I think you can tell a lot about a person based on their style just as you can tell a lot about an artist based on a painting or drawing.
CF: What fashion item can you not live without?
DJ: I would not be able to live without my earrings! I can’t leave the house without a pair of earrings in.
CF: Where are some of your favorite places to shop?
DJ: I love to shop at J.Crew, Ralph Lauren, Francesca’s and Marshall’s.
How To: This Fashionista’s look is relatively simple to achieve. Knit sweaters are some of the staple items in my winter wardrobe because they’re so warm and comfortable, look great on and are made in a variety of colors across the rainbow. With the addition of a great pair of jeans, some Sperry Top-Sider shoes, and a fun bold necklace, you have a simple but colorful look nearly identical to this fun loving Fashionista’s.
