Hello fellow Fashionistas and Fashionistos! My name is Brianna Hammerle and I am about to begin my senior year at Stony Brook University. Considering my infinite love for fashion, it may come as a shock to you that I will be graduating with a degree in Health Science next year. While science consists of a lot of hard facts and calculations, fashion is more of a creative outlet. It is a means of self-expression, unique to each individual.
This fall will be the start of my second semester as a CollegeFashionista Style Guru. Throughout the summer I contributed to CollegeFashionista’s ACCESSORIES REPORT column loving every second of it, learning a ton and enhancing my communication skills. We’re changing things up and I am eager to announce that I will now be documenting Stony Brook’s finest in Wednesday’s FASHIONISTA/FASHIONISTO SPOTLIGHT column. I cannot wait to find out more about Stony Brook’s Fashionista/o’s style and inspiration this semester!
Attending school at Stony Brook University, located on the north shore of Long Island, presents students with both some positives and negatives. One of the biggest advantages is we’re able to experience all four seasons! Walking to class in the snow though, well, sucks but we don’t have to worry about that for a few more months. In the meantime it is time to enjoy my favorite season — fall!
For this season I am most excited about bringing booties, safari inspired style and layers with chunky sweaters into my wardrobe. These Jeffrey Campbell booties are similar to mine and can be worn with rolled up jeans for a cool everyday look with a little height. Transitioning from summer to fall on Long Island is sometimes a little difficult but mixing the two seasons can be fun! For me, I’d rather wear a dress or shorts with a sweater. On the other hand, rolled up boyfriend jeans, a tank and double strap sandals gives an effortlessly chic look for this season also.
So, after already learning so much this summer as a Style Guru, I cannot wait to see what is in store for me next semester. I’m looking forward to see what trends Fashionistas and Fashionistos will take with them from summer to fall, including incorporating kimonas, maxi dresses, color-blocking, fashionable sweatshirts and colors like sapphire blue and oxblood. Check in every Wednesday to see who is featured next!
