For the first campus style interview of the semester, we’re catching up with Julianna Citarella, a sophomore communications major whose amazing style never goes unnoticed. Citarella is always dressed from head to toe in the latest trends, looking effortless regardless of what she wears.
LY: What are you wearing today?
JC: I’m wearing an embroidered dress and knee-high black boots. To me, this is a great way to take summer trends such as embroidered dresses into fall by adding tall boots.
LY: How would you describe your style?
JC: I would describe my style as a mix of a lot of things. Some days I like really bright colors and boho or vintage looking clothing, other days I just really like to wear all black. I also love white T-shirts and jeans. I’m really fickle.
LY: Who is your style icon?
JC: I’m not sure who my style icon is, but I love everything Alice and Olivia comes out with. I’ve always been a fan of Rihanna because she just always looks edgy.
LY: Where do you look for fashion inspiration and style?
JC: If I see girl and think, “wow, she has her life together” or looks like a really powerful female, I always take notes on what she is wearing.
LY: Where are your favorite places to shop at?
JC: Anthropologie (sale is key), Free People, the Gap because they have awesome “comfy but I tried” looking things and basics, Lord and Taylor (sale is also key). I also shop ASOS online sometimes and Zara is appearing more and more in my closet.
LY: What is your favorite trend right now?
JC: I really love that the brand For Love and Lemons is getting bigger. I love their dainty pieces but I also love denim, like fringed jeans or patch work denim.
LY: What are you going to incorporate into your closet this fall?
JC: I’m focusing more on wearing fun statement pieces and balancing them with simple shirts or necklaces. I like an outfit to balance between a neutral color and an edgy pair of shoes.
