Sophomore History Major
What are you wearing?
The cardigan is from Urban Outfitters, V-neck from Old Navy, tweed pants from Urban Outfitters, rainbow Flip Flops and the glasses are Versols.
Where do you like to shop?
Urban Outfitters, H & M, Heritage in the Freehold Raceway Mall and anywhere else that catches my eye.
Any particular item of clothing you’re eyeing these days?
TOMS shoes. They’re pretty funky and they support a good cause.
How would you classify your style?
My style is so ambiguous. I feel like what I wear changes with what kind of music I’m listening to at the moment. Whatever comes on on my iHome when I wake up usually dictates what I wear for that day.
Where do you get your inspiration?
Music, the website Lookbook, and I like a lot of fashion blogs. The Sartorialist is one of my favorites.
Have you always been into fashion?
My parents were a large influence on my sense of style. When I was little, my mom always dressed me in suspenders and blue corduroys. I still wear blue corduroys all the time and everyone makes fun of me for it.
Do you have a favorite article of clothing?
Probably my entire collection of bow ties, even though I rarely wear them. I feel like everyone judges me.
Do you have a style icon?
Andre 3000. He’ll take something that is supposed to be really professional and classic, and make it trendy and fashionable. He wears things that people wouldn’t ordinarily wear on an everyday basis, and somehow makes everything seem more accessible.
Do you think you stand out with your style?
I think my style is different, but not as crazy as I’d like it to be.
Why not be more crazy?
I don’t want to look like a hot mess.
Where do you see your style 10 years from now?
I envision it to be very business-professional, with a twist of funk. If I have to wear a black suit, I’m gonna wear a purple bow tie.
