Take a walk around campus and you’ll find all kinds of people with their own unique styles and tastes. Here are ten girls I saw absolutely killing the fashion scene because not only did their ensembles catch my eye, but their confidence shone even more! Thank you again to all the girls who allowed me to include them in this article who all exuded what Taylor Swift means when she says, “We never go out of style.”
Wearing: Shoes from Mandees, jeans and sweater from H&M, and a jacket from Old Navy.
How She Put it Together: “It was cold when I left and I decided maybe I’ll be cute today. That’s pretty much it . . . I love sweaters and I love mustard for the fall season so I was just trying to get a lot of that today.”
Personal Style: “I feel like my style is really eclectic. I like black. If you look at my closet it’s pretty much black and white. I love like, simple and classic. My goal is Sex and the City at Montclair. Carrie Bradshaw all day everyday.”
Style Icon: “Right now, as much as I hate her, I love Kylie Jenner clothing wise. All her other decisions I don’t agree with, but I love her clothing. She made me want to dye my hair blue, I have to admit it.”
Major: Public Health
Wearing: Bold purple flats, trench coat, grey infinity scarf, green pencil skirt, and a blazer all from H&M, Forever 21 and her sister’s closet.
How She Put it Together: “Since my schedule is ridiculous this year, I try to pick out my outfit the night before. Basically, I just lay it out and go through my clothes. Today I had a preconception health training, peer educating training from 8-3 so that’s why I’m dressed more professional.”
Style Icons: Janelle Monet, Solange Knowles, and herself.
Her Style: “It’s definitely based off my schedule. During high school I went through a phase on definitely dressing outside the box so whatever someone had I kind of didn’t want. Going into senior year, now I’m part of different organizations so I differentiate it from lazy day to dress up day. But, lazy day still ends up kinda cute, like, I don’t let it all fall off. So like, kinda chic.”
Closet Essentials: Scarves, purses, shoes, jackets, heels
Major: Fashion Studies
Wearing: “This top I got from Urban Outfitters. When I saw it online I had to have it even though it was more than I would normally pay for a sweater. My purse is from the Coach outlet. It was a great deal…I’m always looking for deals. The skirt was a hand-me-down; it’s a circle skirt made out of denim but it’s from Forever 21 from a while ago. The socks are also from Urban Outfitters. The shoes were from ShoeMint. It was a great deal because it was in this 2 for $40 sale so I really had to snatch them up. I’m really picky with shoes so I was really happy about these.”
How She Put it Together: “Originally I had a jacket on but you didn’t see that. I was looking at the weather and thought that since I don’t really like the winter here since it’s so cold, I thought that this is one of those days where I could still get away with wearing a skirt and thigh highs which is kind of my signature look now. Then I thought that I might as well wear my favorite sweater!”
Style: “I think it’s more of boho feminine. I always wear things like floral and lace and crochet and anything that’s girly.”
Style Icon: “I would like to say that back when I was younger it would be Zoey from Zoey 101, and then it was Hilary Duff and now it’s more of Ariana Grande, but I don’t really look to her for inspiration, I just really admire her style. She actually encouraged me to be more adventurous with doing things like showing skin, wearing a crop top with a mini skirt, or actually putting my hair up.”
Closet Essentials: “Fleece tights because it’s really cold outside here, always have a good lingerie wardrobe because that makes your entire wardrobe, and make sure you purses can go with all your outfits. Make sure with your purses go with your backpack too.”

How they threw it together: “I Just kinda slapped it on because we were trying to catch a bus.” “Yeah, I just decided to look nice today. I don’t know, it was a good day so I decided to dress up.”
Styles: “Very preppy and I like fun colors.” “I have the red hair so I like more of the blacks, kinda grungy.”
Style Icons: Holland Roden from Teen Wolf and Hayley Williams from Paramore.
Wearing: Black leather booties, maroon thigh high socks, black skirt, personalized denim jacket, and a black beanie, “Honestly everything I get is from Forever 21 because I like buying cheap cute clothes but like, yeah.

How She Put it Together: “I stole these shoes from my roommate. I really like the red, burgundy, the black and everything and I thought it’d look really cute with a sweater and skirt tucked in.”
Personal Style: “I wear a lot of skirts and thigh highs. That’s kinda my look and Doc Martens and stuff like that, so I’d go for like, grunge and alternative grunge punk pop look.”
Style Icon: “I love Halsey and Beyonce.”
