Name: Shane Roach
Major: Business, Marketing & Entrepreneur
CollegeFashionista: Describe your style in three words.
Shane Roach: Updated street classic.
CF: What are your wardrobe staples?
SR: Now that it is almost fall, its time to switch up the style a little. I practically live in my Clarks, a pair of jeans, a hoodie and a New Era fitted. Because I work at Nordstrom in Men’s Clothing, I have to dress up a lot, so when I get the chance to keep it casual I definitely take it. I keep it pretty casual during the week and then put my outfits together a little bit more meticulously on the weekends.
CF: Does fashion play an important role in your life?
SR: Definitely. I have always liked clothing and at this point in my life it is definitely a career choice. My friend had a clothing company freshman year of college which I helped him with and then I moved on to work at The North Face and interned at Nordstrom. My big plan is to work in corporate retail marketing and focus on selling fashion everyday.
CF: Where do you get your style inspiration from?
SR: My style inspiration comes from many different places. I am from a small town, which is where I get some of my rugged roots in my wardrobe. I follow a lot of streetwear blogs and stay up on collaborations and new releases constantly. To top it all off, working at Nordstrom has increased my eye for luxury items and classic looks. Instagram is definitely one of my favorite outlets as well. Shout out to @dennistodisco.
