STYLE GURU BIO: Joanna Del Priore

Happy new year, Fashionistas and Fashionistos! I hope you all ended the fall semester with straight A’s, and had a restful and enjoyable holiday season. My name is Joanna Del Priore and I am in my sixth semester at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. I major in fashion business management and minor in mathematics and economics. Outside of FIT, I work as a sales associate at Gap and intern in the Consumer Products Department at Nickelodeon. I love to keep myself busy and wouldn’t trade my experience at FIT for the world. There are so many opportunities to take advantage of and fun places to explore around Manhattan.

I am very happy and thankful to spend another semester with CollegeFashionista. I’ve been writing for CollegeFashionista for one and a half years and love sharing the latest campus trends in beauty and fashion. Attending FIT, I’ve been inspired to rock a quirky style that greatly defines my personal fashion sense. I don’t necessarily follow trends, nor have a black and white “New York” style, but I love to wear prints, color and glitter. I always try to incorporate one, if not all, into my look and am never afraid to try and pull off the funkiest of outfits. My motto is that life is too short to wear boring clothes, and that the world is your runway.

Taking these into mottos into consideration, I decided to wear some of my favorite clothes in my featured outfit. The prints, such as the floral and snakeskin, color and glitter, all complement each other to create a unique and fun look. Layering was necessary to achieve this outfit. I paired a plain gray T-shirt under a silver sequin blazer, and added a feminine floral bomber jacket on top. My ripped boyfriend jeans are worn over snakeskin- print leggings to add style and keep warm on brisk winter days. To accessorize, I added on a small quilted cross-body bag with a cozy infinity scarf.

I look forward to meeting new Style Gurus, writing about the latest trends from FIT and reading everyone’s articles this semester! Stayed tuned for my articles that will be posted each month. In the meantime, I hope you all have a wonderful winter recess!
