My name is Danielle Cervoni and I am a rising sophomore at American University in Washington D.C., where I am majoring in Public Communication and minoring in Political Science. I hold the positions of Deputy Director of Social Media for American University’s student government and Director of Photography for I AM, which is a New York based, globally inspired lifestyle magazine. This is my first time working with CollegeFashionista and I am very excited to learn more about the fashion world from my fellow Style Gurus this summer.
Born and raised in New York, one of the biggest fashion capitals of the world, surrounded by a huge, well-dressed Italian family, I have acquired a love for fashion. Growing up in New York and moving to D.C. for my first semester of college has opened my eyes to so many different types of styles. Living in two of the biggest, brightest and most energetic cities in the nation, I have realized that fashion is what you make of it. From hanging out with the edgiest of roommates who rock ripped jeans and Dr. Martens to the most conservative of classmates who wear Lilly Pulitzer and Tory Burch flats, I have fallen in love with the whole spectrum of city life and college style.
My style is simple and I believe that you cannot go wrong with the basics. I also believe that it is okay to be a little wild at times. Wear bright colors, tons of sequins, crazy patterns and really high heels. College is a time to experiment, to create yourself, to learn about who you want to be and how you want to express yourself to the world. So before you form your own sense of style, be a little wild and try everything.
As Lana Del Rey would say, “be young, be dope, be proud,” and always keep your style on.
