Fashionisto Spotlight

Rocky Top is a place filled with many different types of people and styles, but some days, the class attire on campus can become monotonous. Sure, everyone has lazy days where his or her style moves to the back burner, but finding a Fashionisto whose style is as bold as his presence will make any fellow Fashionista or Fashionisto appreciate good style when he or she sees it. Giorgio Armani describes style best when he says, “Style isn’t about being noticed, it’s about being remembered,” and this Fashionisto’s campus style is sure to leave an impression.

Name: Alden Hill

Major: Graphic Design

Year: Junior

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?

Alden Hill: My style has a designer look with a touch of urban punk. My wardrobe consists of layers and bold accessories in various colors that work in coordination.

CF: Whose celebrity style do you relate to the most? Why? 

AH: I look to A$AP Rocky for trendy outfits that intertwine high priced runway pieces and urban street wear.

CF: How has your style changed since you first stepped foot on Rocky Top to now?

AH: I have opened up my style to venture more into brand name pieces for urban looks, but I am always searching for similar trends to experiment with.

CF: How do you express your creativity outside of your wardrobe?

AH: I am an artist and a graphic design major, so I am constantly finding inspiration through different elements I find in everyday life.

How To: Finding a bold focal point should be the basis of this urban recreation. Dr. Martens can be found in a variety of patterns and colors to fit your unique style. Adding a button-down shirt with a common color is where you will tie this outfit together. Add your favorite pair of denim and a sweater in a contrasting color over the button-down. Pairing a military style jacket for an added layer will give the outfit a new dimension on those chillier days. Finish off this ensemble with your favorite accessories, and you have an urban look that is sure to cause a double take.
