STYLE GURU BIO: Nicole Griffin

Hey guys! My name is Nicole, and I am a sophomore at Rutgers University studying Marketing and Supply Chain Management. This is my third semester as a Style Guru, and I couldn’t be more excited!

My style ranges from super girly to edgy. I love a floral dress, but I’m also into rocking slip-on sneakers, jeans and a simple top. My all time favorite trends are and will always be open back dresses and tops, lace-up sandals and flats and corduroy and suede button-up skirts. I have so many backless tops, dresses and rompers that they are literally all I wear. Lace-up shoes are almost like leg jewelry: the lace-up/ankle strap parts are basically like statement anklets. Corduroy skirts have a classic look that will never go out of style.

There are so many amazing designers and labels out there but my absolute all time favorites are Reformation, Acne and Sophia Webster (those SHOES). I literally have dreams of working for these amazing companies.

As for career goals, I want to do something in the fashion industry (obviously). Last summer, I interned for Roberto Coin, and the experience solidified my aspirations of wanting to work in fashion. As for long term goals, I want to work my way up to a VP/Directorial position in the Marketing and/or PR department of a major fashion company (hi Bergdorf Goodman’s…).

So, Fashionistas and Fashionistos, stay tuned every month for my articles and Scarlet Knights, I’ll be keeping my eye out for you on campus!
