CollegeFashionista: Does your personality show through your style?
Jared Fertig: Yeah, I'd definitely say so. I think I have a diverse personality and I try to show that with the clothes I wear, namely the wide variety of colors and patterns I have.
CF: What would you never be caught wearing?
JF: Probably a miniskirt. I don't think I have the ability, or the legs, to pull that fashion statement off.
CF: What advice would you give other guys on holiday gift shopping for a girl?
JF: Anything that's really personal and shows you were thinking about her. I'd make her a T-shirt with my face on it, or a picture of the both of us.
