Office Style: Meet Gianna

“My style? What Kanye would wear going on a hike… Everything oversized.”

Your position at Free People…

I’m a styling assistant in the photo studio. :)

Describe your personal style…

What Kanye would wear going on a hike… Everything oversized – I’m almost always in a hoodie, bike shorts, and sneakers/hiking boots. I love a retro ski vibe and am inclined to think that it will be my fall/winter vibe, too.

What makes you feel confident?

Confidence, to me, is mind over matter. I can’t say I always feel it, but I KNOW it’s always there for me to tap into, and if I keep telling myself I am confident, I will begin to exude it and other people will feed off of it. That to me is very empowering. It’s contagious and it just takes a choice!

Who is your style icon?

Veneda Budny can do no wrong — I also love Zoe Kravitz, Freja Wewer and )not to sound like a broken record but) Kanye.

Favorite part of your job?

Having a vision for a look and seeing it all come to life never gets old.

What are your beauty + wellness must-haves?

I’m a big believer in essential oils and I also love rose water to rinse my face every morning:)

What do you do outside of Free People?

My life revolves around 3 things: Free People, thrifting and film. I love watching old classics, but I also love filming my own life. I’m currently recapping my year in emotional and literal seasons, and it’s been so awesome to see my journey over the past 9 months.

If you had to wear one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

That’s a tough one! It would definitely involve a pair of sneakers and probably something I thrifted. I scored a vintage ski set last winter that makes me feel like I stepped out of an early 2000’s rap music video… I wouldn’t be mad feeling that way for the rest of my life.

Your favorite (upcoming) trend…

BIKE SHORTS!

Best concert you’ve attended OR dream concert you’d love to attend:

Atmosphere will be in town next month and I’m itching to get tickets!

Most embarrassing outfit you’ve ever worn.

I can’t remember a specific outfit but I did go through a phase where I really wanted glasses even though I didn’t need them. I thrifted a pair of bug-eyed grandma frames (with prescription lenses!) that would give me major headaches. I wore them every day. It wasn’t cute y’all.

One piece of advice you’d give your younger self.

Your mom is cool — you aren’t.

What’s the first thing you’d do if you won the lottery today?

Throw a Mario Kart party with all my friends — winner gets a G Wagon Benz.
