Ayone Davis, senior deaf and hard of hearing education and women’s and gender studies double major
What are you wearing and where is it from?
My shirt is from CottonOn. It’s this cute little Australian retail store. My jeans are J Brand from Bloomingdales. I love J Brand. No one understands. Next to Joe’s Jeans, they are my favorite, favorite, favorite. My jacket is GUESS, and my shoes — I have TOMs on.
How do you decide what you are going to wear in the morning? Do you have a routine?
I actually do have a routine. I have two armoires and I keep my closet open. And I have a rack in my room. I kind of go with what I’m feeling. It sounds so crazy. I rarely check the weather, though, so sometimes I get it wrong.
Do you have a style icon?
Not really. I have designers that I wish would like, make a baby. Free People and BCBG, if they had a baby, that would be cool. That’s what I would want to be.
What’s one thing you can’t leave the house without?
Sunglasses. Which you see, I have on. I drive a lot so I always need them and I feel like they’re just so cool. You can look like a bum and put sunglasses on and you don’t look like a bum anymore.
What’s your favorite trend right now?
Color-blocking. I always want to wear 4,000 things and the idea that everyone thinks it’s cool now to wear yellow and blue, and orange and blue, and pink and green, is cool.
What are your favorite stores?
Bloomingdales, Free People and AllSaints. That’s where my bag is from. I don’t know how to describe them. It’s a lease department inside Bloomingdales. I love all of their stuff.
If there was one thing that you could tell students at the College for style advice, what would you say?
Dress like you are going to meet the person of your dreams. That’s what I tell all my friends and myself in the morning when I want to throw on sweats. I can meet my husband today!
What was your biggest impulse buy?
My Michele watch. I wanted it ever since I was 16. I love it. It’s looks like a man’s watch, but it’s kind of smaller and I just love it.
What is your biggest fashion regret?
I guess denim skirts. I hate everything about denim skirts. One of my vendors at my job is GUESS and I love all their stuff, but they came out with denim skirts and I hate it. Long, short, whatever. I hate denim skirts. Or like a skort. That’s so stupid to me.
