STYLE GURU BIO: Jenna Cappabianca

My name is Jenna and I am 18 years old. I am a freshman studying fashion merchandising and mass communications at Oneonta State University. When my senior year arrives, I plan to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology through Oneonta’s 3-1 fashion program.

This is my first semester writing for CollegeFashionista and I couldn’t be any more excited! It is the perfect opportunity to combine my passion for fashion and journalism. I love how the fashion industry is always changing and evolving. There are no limits or rules on what you can wear and that’s what makes it so unique and fun. Styling an outfit is truly a work of art and to perfect it, you need to remember the details! I am obsessed with rings and think they are a must with any look.

For today’s look, I wore a flowy, nude long sleeve knit shirt and matching nude suede booties ($12)—what a steal! I paired it with a black overcoat and faux fur collar. This jacket is from Sears and is perfect to keep you nice and toasty during the winter weather. For accessories, I added a wrap-around choker to spice up the outfit. Of course, one of my favorite things about this look are my rings. On my left hand, I am wearing a sterling silver and gold ring with a large turquoise gem on my middle finger and a Charles Krypell sterling silver ring on my thumb. However, my favorite is the diamond and garnet encrusted ring on my right hand that is extra special to me because it belonged to my grandmother.

This winter break I’m looking forward to eating good food, laughing, and spending quality time with my friends and family. I also can’t wait to fly to Florida this break and escape the cold weather.
