Who, What, Wear



Sarah Moore, retailing and consumer sciences junior

Who is your style icon and why?

I don’t really look up to anyone for style; I just kind of know what I like and when I see something I like, I know I want to wear it. I don’t particularly follow any trends or anything. I kind of just people-watch and see what looks good and see what I like and kind of go from there. Because I’m not really involved in any social media or celebrity-watching or any of that so I just kind of do it on my own.

What fall trend are you gearing up to try this season or ready to finally break out of your closet?

I’m all about the awkward grandma-sweaters styles – those are the best. And, like, scarves and maybe leggings if you wear them right. I’m really excited about the sweaters mainly. They’re comfy and they look good.

*Do you typically get them from thrift stores? *

Yeah, I found a lot of them from thrift stores. I think that’s where I get most of them because those are like the real authentic ones that grandmas have actually worn.

How would you describe your style?

My style is kind of like — I’ve never really had to classify it — but I like a lot of floral, so whatever you’d classify that as. Like, floral with kind of an edginess and a boho vibe on it. I like to take trends and really push them to the edge sometimes. I don’t know; it kind of just depends on what I’m feeling. But it’s always changing because I work in retail so I’m always kind of changing what I wear and buying way too many clothes.

Where do you work?

I work at Urban Outfitters.

Very nice. So, last question, can you tell me a little bit about what you’re wearing?

Well, it’s kind of embarrassing that everything I’m wearing is from Urban — literally everything is. So the brands aren’t really special. I mean, most of the things I buy are about $20, so yeah, “balling on a budget” is what I like to call it.

Christine Scolinos, sociology sophomore

Who is your style icon and why?

I don’t know, I guess just celebrities and Instagram.

What fall trend are you gearing up to try this season or ready to finally break out of your closet?

The sapphire nail polish, definitely.

How would you describe your style?

Definitely wanna-be athletic, relaxed, make people think I work out. Very low-key, blend-in type of thing. Or it’s the complete opposite where I have this giant, hot pink Kate Spade purse and, of course, my sunglasses.

Can you tell me a little bit about what you’re wearing?

It was hot, so I decided to wear shorts and little sandals. It kind of makes it a little dressier and this top because it makes me look tan.
