Mimi Ross asks students around campus to describe their style. Millie and Binta say their styles tell a unique story about them.
As college students, we may want to find a style that helps us stand out in the crowd. But how do you define your style? Two RACC students, Millie and Binta, explained how their unique styles reflect who they are.
Millie, a Psychology student, says her look is not an overall aesthetic; it’s barometer of her life. Her style mirrors how she is feeling that day.
“Basically it’s the mood I’m in when I wake up,” she says. “If I wake up sad, I’ll put on sweatpants. I’m happy, I’ll put on jeans with a nice tank top. And if I’m tired, jogger pants.”
She also keeps an eye on fashion trend-setter and triple threat Zendaya.
Binta, an Orthopedic Nursing major, says she likes to start trends rather than follow them.
“If I like it I put it on, I don’t follow what everyone is wearing.”
Binta’s fashion icon is singer Rihanna, whose iconoclastic style is always ahead of the curve.
Both students have different fashion styles that go with their own unique personalities, but they both love shopping at Forever 21 and Victoria’s Secret, two places where students can go to find hot new fashion looks.
So what’s your style? Whether you want to look like Zendaya or you’d rather stake out your own path, your style can tell others who you are and who you want to be.
