STYLE GURU BIO: Emma Pontillo

January 6th, 2016 at 5:10pm

Hey all you Fashionistas! I’m Emma Pontillo, a sophomore at Fordham University. To describe myself adequately I should tell you that I am a Rachel Green wannabe obsessed with everything that has to do with fashion, New York City and kittens. I swear by J.Crew, accent colors and crispy fall days.

Currently, I am a Communications major with a concentration in New Media and a minor in who knows what. Trust me, I’ve been across the board on that one, but right now I am leaning toward English (note: answer is subject to change). I’ve lived in New York for most of my life, and choosing to attend college in New York City has been the best decision I’ve ever made. For as long as I can remember living in New York City was my dream, and what better way to enjoy my time here than by sharing all the amazing looks I see, and the inspirations I get from the city that never sleeps.

My favorite season is fall and I think my personal style really reflects that. I love deep warm colors that make you feel cozy just looking at them! I’ve recently developed a love for all things plaid and I am definitely tuning in to the explosion of ’90s-inspired fashion. Some of my favorite every day pieces include a cozy wrap, perfect for the crisp weather that is ever so slowly approaching, dark skinny jeans, and an accent piece such as a daring necklace that definitely deserves a double take! To top it off, I never go far without a tinted lip balm. It’s great for times when you want a little tint of color but also want the hydration of a lip balm.

Every day I am so impressed by all the creative ways people put together their looks and individualize themselves. I am so excited to join the CollegeFashionista team and share the amazing looks I see! I look forward to a great semester with you all!
