Greetings to my fellow Fashionistas and Fashionistos!
My name is Grace Trepasso and this is my first semester as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista! I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with such a talented team, meet other Style Gurus and share my love of fashion with you all!
I am currently a sophomore at Ithaca College as a legal studies (pre-law) major with a sociology minor. A few of my favorite things are vanilla lattes, The Beatles and anything well written. They call Ithaca, New York ten acres outside of reality and they are certainly not wrong. I am so fortunate to live in such a beautiful place. When I’m not studying or hiking one of the many gorges in the area, I am usually out taking in all of the unique sights this small city has to offer. Between the festivals, the concerts, the restaurants and the hiking, Ithaca is a catalyst for creativity.
If I could choose one word to describe my personal style, it is eclectic. My style is constantly changing; some days I’m rocking some comfy athleisure, some days it looks like I stepped out of a bohemian paradise and other days it looks like I should be in the woods. I gather the pieces in my wardrobe from a wide variety of places and the outfit I have on in this look illustrates it perfectly. To begin, my denim jacket is from Urban Outfitters. I love the oversized, worn in, ’90s feel. To keep me warm on this chilly day, I wore this patterned sweater underneath. I thrifted it from my local Salvation Army but it is originally from Eddie Bauer. Any striped or patterned sweater would look awesome in this look and would give it great texture. For bottoms, I just wore some simple black pants and threw on my Dr. Martens to give it a slightly edgy feel.
When it comes to accessories, I always have some sort of jewelry on. I feel naked without it! For this look, I have on some silver rings that I usually wear almost everyday.
This is just one of the many looks you could see me wearing on campus during class or when I’m running to get a cup of coffee. Thank you for reading this article and stay on the lookout for more articles this semester!
