Venezuelan style spices up USC's campus.
Trends from all over the world impact our Gamecock nation in South Carolina. Attending a school that is filled with many international students you have the chance to not only learn about their culture, but get a first hand view of their trends from home. It is very interesting to view the abroad fashions which even influence my own personal style. By keeping an open mind and listening to our peers on campus, Fashionistas are able to alter their own look in order to stand out from the crowd. I spotted Claudiana Vivas walking through campus with a classy look. I loved how she layered her outfit and had a bright smile on her face.

How To: Comfortable leggings are perfect for venturing to your classes on the South Carolina campus. Feeling daring? Spice it up with some checkered or ombre leggings to add some extra pattern to your ensemble. Claudiana adds some class to her plain V-neck tee by layering it with a plum vest. Oversized sweaters are always a staple to any Fashionista's outfit during the fall season. This Fashionista wears a light grey sweater with her posh look. Her floral winter scarf compliments her whole Venezuelan look with all of her flattering colors. Finishing with brown riding boots and a satchel this international is ready to hit campus.
