STYLE GURU BIO: Danielle Williams

Hi Fashionistas, it’s so nice to meet you all! Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Danielle Williams and I am a junior at the University of Rhode Island. My major is textile merchandising and design and my minor is public relations. In the short time at my university I have become involved in many clubs and activities. I am a member of the Sigma Kappa sorority, Textile Honor Society, Fashion Merchandising Society and many honors programs. I have spent my time over the past few years combining my studies and my passion for the arts. I am honored and excited to represent my campus as a Style Guru for the upcoming semester!

I am an ambitious fashion lover who takes my studies very seriously and loves sports. I believe in Netflix marathons, freshly painted nails, coffee, late nights and even later mornings. I live by the saying “everything happens for a reason” and believe that an outfit can define who a person is.

Since a young age, I have been painting abstract art with my grandma. My first painting was when I was four years old; I basically threw paint on a canvas with the use of a couple stencils and called it art. The most amazing concept about art is that absolutely anything can be classified as that. The Internet defines art as the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination. This leaves the category so broad as to what art can be; therefore fashion is another form of art. Fashion is defined as, a popular trend, especially in styles of dress and ornament or manners of behavior. This definition does not do fashion justice. Fashion is a world of its own that allows people to express themselves without saying a word. You know how they say you are what you eat, well I believe in you are what you wear. The style you choose to wear truly expresses your emotions and you as a person.

My style fluctuates anywhere from boho-chic casual to trendy elegant to sporty. I always dress to impress and feel that it is important that everyone does. Interested in my look above? It is a casual, lightweight romper with a hint of lace that you can dress up or dress down. In this specific setting I chose to dress it more casual by including a pair of nude gladiator sandals and accent jewelry.

Be sure to follow my posts for the rest of this semester. I’ll be sure to include a variety of outfits for this wonderful fall weather!
