STYLE GURU BIO: Ali Stagnitta

I can’t help but feel like everyone is getting a little tired of my constant reporting of GW Fashionista/os and I can admit, I get a little bored of the same backdrops of monuments and marble buildings. Luckily for us all, I will be finding for you the most fabulous characters in college fashion from the fashion capitol of world. Goodbye to the nation’s capitol and ciao Milano!

Before I head to my explore my Italian heritage and the rest of Europe, I obviously had to make a quick pit stop in Florida to work on my tan. There’s something so wonderful about reaching into the back of your closet, mid-winter, to grab some shorts, blouses and sandals instead of leggings, sweaters and boots. Lately, one of my favorite trends have been high-waisted shorts and a tied-up button-down blouse. This look works for any body type and is certainly flattering on an hour glass figure because it cinches right at the slimmest part of your waist. Plus, you have the ability to adjust it to show little skin or remain a bit modest!

When I’m dressing for this season, I love to layer, wear oversized sweaters and play with several textures. My fall/winter staples are my marbled black velvet high-waisted leggings, my Zara over-the-knee boots and my Sam Edelman gold sequin blazer. Since I’m normally in all-black or dark neutrals, I’ll always have a bright lipstick on hand, whether it’s purple, pink or bright red.

In Milano, I’ll be continuing to study journalism but also taking courses in the Milan fashion design school to expand my understanding of the fashion world. I’m so excited to bring you all, my readers, with me to Europe via CollegeFashionista and show you all the fabulous people I encounter on my travels!
