Campus Style

Tumblr can be very inspirational when it comes to fashion.

Hannah Wey, junior biology major

What are you wearing?

Forever 21 pretty much monopolizes everything I am wearing today. My shoes are from Forever 21. They are black bootie wedges with black socks. I’m wearing dark skinny jeans, also from Forever 21, with a thin black belt. I’m wearing a houndstooth button-up, a Tiffany’s necklace that my dad got for me, and a brown leather jacket from Burlington Coat Factory. I am wearing a sock-bun on top of my head, but made without a sock.

Where do you get your fashion inspiration?

I go on Tumblr a lot, so it’s not always a particular person as much as what I find on there. If I were to say I follow a fashion icon, I would say I like the way Cher Lloyd dresses. She’s really funky and stylish. Also, Rachel Bilson.

How would you describe your style?

It changes from time to time. Right now, I’m looking into more of a modern city look. I do a lot of blacks, browns, creams, button-ups and straight lines. I like geometric and bold colors. I pretty much do all solid colors. I barely ever do prints. This houndstooth is one of the very few prints that I own. I like to layer short dresses with boots, blazers and scarves.

What are some trends that you don’t like and stay away from?

A couple years ago they made those maternity-style dresses that fanned out. I hate those. I like A-lines. I like things with bands around the waist. Anything high-waisted, I love. A tall skirt, I’m about. Low rise jeans, I’m not about. I’m not too into the tight lace anymore.

What fashion advice do you have for the College?

I don’t know if people at the College don’t have time or aren’t putting in enough effort, but I feel like we have fashionistas waiting to be released at the College. People should just go bolder. If it’s a wedge kind of day, just wear them. Just do it.
