West Virginia University senior Jen Fucci would describe her style in two words: ‘comfortable chic.’ Jen, a psychology major originally from New York, loves to shop in SoHo, Manhatten and the Garden State Plaza in New Jersey, but has picked up items from around the country and even the world during her travels.
Moving around a lot over the past few years has allowed Jen to shop in a variety of places and bring many different and unique styles together to mold one of her very own.
“My bag’s from Italy, my coat’s from Italy, my shoes are from New Jersey,” she says with a laugh.
One of Jen’s favorite pieces is her sleek black coat she bought in Italy over a year ago.
“I got it on the street in Italy and was able to make a bargain out of it. Over time it has become one of my favorite coats and I wear it all the time. I feel like a Bond girl in it.”
No matter how trendy, however, comfort is a top priority while shopping and picking out new outfits. Finding clothes that fit her body type is the most important part of feeling great about how she looks in what she’s wearing.
“If I don’t feel comfortable in my clothes I can’t feel sexy. I try to dress to compliment my body type.”
Jen also says her WVU class ring is one of her most cherished accessories and she wears it every day.
“I’m a senior and I hold it as very important to me. My time at WVU has been very important to me and so I wear my ring every day.”
Her fashion sense touches on so many styles it is hard to pin down a type of clothing that best describes her. Jen mixes bright, colorful patterned pieces and accessories with more basic solids to create a worldy, eclectic and extremely stylish look for herself.
