STYLE GURU BIO: Jami Lapinson

Hi fellow Fashionistas and Fashionistos! My name is Jami Lapinson, and I am tremendously excited to be a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista this semester. I just finished my second semester at the Fashion Institute of Technology where I study Accessories Design. Since I was a little girl, I loved to throw on a pair of heels and strut around the house. I believe accessories make or break an outfit.

Being from South Jersey, living in New York City has always been a dream. It was a place that was so close yet so far from my reach. Having the opportunity to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology has been a dream come true. Being located in the heart of New York City, right on Fashion Avenue, there are so many opportunities to spot crazy fashion.

I wouldn’t say I have a particular “style.” I like to wake up and dress for my mood, which means I’m usually wearing all-black. I love accessorizing with bold pops of colors. This summer, I do want to push myself to dress out of my comfort zone with bold colors and patterns.

Today I’m wearing comfortable, yet stylish, palazzo pants with a simple black tank top. I added a studded denim vest, one of my favorite summer accessories, and platform wedges to complete the look. For a pop of color I added in a bright teal handbag.

This semester I want to be able to share my style while inspiring students and everyone who reads my articles. I’m excited to share this semester with CollegeFashionista and you!
