STYLE GURU BIO: Alessa Gabrielle

May 26th, 2015 at 4:02pm

Hello Fashionistas/os, My name is Alessa, I am a University of South Florida student, majoring in Communications.

Ever since I was old enough to pick out my own clothes and shoes, I knew I needed to be involved in this creative world we know as the fashion Mecca. I am very passionate about all things fashion and beauty.

One of my favorite parts of this industry is that it is ever changing. Fashion always comes full circle. Clothing items that were trending ten, twenty, and thirty years ago are coming back today and becoming a staple in wardrobes everywhere. This industry keeps designers and buyers on their feet, forced to constantly keep up.

Fashion gives me an outlet to express my own creativity. The creation process of shopping and creating outfits to me is an art form. Fashion gives people the opportunity to express their own sense of style and feel comfortable.

My wardrobe tends to stay fairly simple. I like to wear neutral colors and accessorize with gold. Since it is currently between spring and summer, I am incorporating pops of color in my outfits. I believe in keeping my outfits simple and then adding a touch of color through accessories. This makes an outfit complete. As for beauty, I am currently in love with bright matte lip colors and a simple eye.

In this photo, I am wearing a pair of my favorite destroyed denim boyfriend jeans. If I could, I would wear these everyday. They are so comfortable and add a edgy flair to a simple outfit. My jeans are accompanied by a simple white tank. As for accessories, I am wear my two-strap black sandals, a black billed hat and my favorite kate spade initial necklace.

I am so excited for this semester; new trends and new people. I’m interested to see what this season will bring. I hope to connect and learn about others view of style as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista and prepare for my future in the fashion industry.
