STYLE GURU BIO: Alexis Grieco

Hello fellow Fashionistas! My name is Alexis Grieco, and I am going to be a senior this fall at Rutgers University. My major is communications and my minor is human resource management. I currently work full time as a manger within the wonderful company of Michael Kors, where I have been taught so much about the upcoming trends! My dreams are to remain within the fashion industry, and work my way up to becoming a visual merchandiser! This is my first internship and I cannot wait to get started!

Hmm… what does my style consist of? I think it is safe to say that my style lies between boho and chic. As I put together an outfit, I usually tend to go for more of the rugged or rustic look, but always make sure I bring something along to spruce it up super quick! In addition, I like simple outfits! It’s always fun to throw on a dress or romper and touch it up with a bunch of necklaces, but it’s important to never overdo it! Although my style changes quite frequently, I think it’s safe to say, I will never be going anywhere without a watch! I believe they are timeless pieces that add a small bit of class to any outfit!

Being that I’m 5’9”, I struggle a ton trying to find rompers (I own 3 where the average girl probably has 20). However, I hit the jackpot after finding this beautiful fall colored romper that is extremely comfortable. One can wear this romper however they choose, whether it be with sandals and a messy bun, or with heels for a girl’s night out! Although it is still summer, fall is approaching quickly so make sure you’re always taking a little jacket with you, because these nights are getting cold! This Madewell jacket does just the trick, as it also gives the outfit a bit of a more put together look! Now I have already mentioned that I’m pretty tall, so it’s rare anyone will catch me in a pair of heels, wedges or booties. However, I could not pass up the great deal I was getting on these 424 Fifth studded block heels! They can literally be worn with any and every outfit!

So Style Gurus, I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit about me and my style! Please follow me on Instagram if you want to see more of my trends! Good luck to all in school, and keep following your dreams!
