Take a second to acknowledge what you’re wearing. Did you put it on because it was the first thing you saw? Or did you carefully piece together your ensemble? Whether it’s lazy or put together, it is the face you are showing the world today and it’s entirely your own. We all have to wear clothes everyday, so why not let those clothes show who you are in the best possible way?
I’d like to say that I live by the words of Yves Saint Laurent, “Fashions fade. Style is eternal.” When I asked my friends to help me define my style, they all agreed that it is classic but fun and eclectic (one said “yacht club rocker,” but even Google couldn’t help me define that one). I am drawn to clothes that look effortlessly good, but I like my outfits to stand out too. Fashion is about getting creative and trying new things and I try to do just that. I’m a sucker for anything with a high-waist or anything that comes in black or gray. As your typical broke college student, I like buying comfortable and versatile pieces that I’ll love forever. I am a true believer that nice clothes don’t have to be expensive.
I somehow manage to cram all these clothes into my dorm room here at The College of New Jersey, where I am a sophomore studying Special Education and English. You can find me around campus frolicking with my roommate and sorority sisters or going to class with my Buzz Lightyear backpack in tow. The fall is my absolute favorite time for fashion, and I can’t wait to explore what the cooler weather and new school year inspires at TCNJ. So ask yourselves this semester, Fashionistas and Fashionistos, what is your personal, eternal style?
