STYLE GURU BIO: Lisa Pietrafesa

Hello fellow Fashionistas/os! My name is Lisa and I am a marketing major at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, New Jersey. Fall is without a doubt my favorite season, because of the turning leaves that make for gorgeous scenery, pumpkin spice lattes are plentiful and the cool weather is the perfect pair for my style. I would definitely say I am drawn towards more preppy and classic fashion while shopping.

In the fall, my one stop shop is J.Crew. From sweaters and button-ups to scarves and vests, J.Crew is a preppy girl’s dream. This season I’m loving their quilted puffer vest. Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren also never fail to offer preppy and trendy fashions.

On campus, I love my Tory Burch tote to carry everything I need for class. The middle zipper pocket fits my laptop perfectly and there are pockets for all my books and necessities. I love cozy sweaters and I often pair them with collared shirts, either button-down or flannel, to give my outfit a more polished look. As for fall footwear, you can never go wrong with a classic riding boot or a trendy bootie. My favorite and most comfortable pair of booties are Franco Sarto.

As for accessories, I like to keep it simple with a stud earring, my watch, my favorite bangle and princess ring. If my outfit is on the simpler side, then I’ll trade my simple bar pendant necklace for a statement necklace. When the weather permits, I love to top any look off with a scarf.

The fall and start of the semester are officially upon us, and I can’t wait to see the fashion statements that show up on my campus. Before we know it, the year’s best season will have come and gone, so take advantage of all the fashion possibilities.
