Dressing for midterm and finals week is always a task. How do be a Fashionista when you haven't slept, little alone thought about your clothes? Comfort, simplicity and style don't always go hand in hand, but this Fashionisto takes on midterms in a carefree military-grunge ensemble. Much of what he is wearing, including his heather gray oversized knit, are hand-me-downs from older siblings or something he saved from the past. He pulls off baggy camouflage cargos tucked into a worn pair of Converse, thus creating the perfect exam ensemble.
Name: Larry Rosalez-Lewis
CollegeFashionista: How has being a dance instructor inspired your wardrobe?
Larry Rosalez-Lewis: Dance has inspired me in terms of function. My wardrobe was not something I could just go right into dance with before so I changed that. I like to find things that will function with my life without just wearing sweatpants and a wife-beater everyday.
CF: What are a couple pieces that you will not leave your dorm without when packing for spring break?
LR: My polo boots, my camo pants and my oversized tanks.
CF: Who would you thank in terms of being an inspiration to your campus fashion?
LR: My parents. They were both in the military and I consider myself very inspired by military style.
