Interrobang found three stylish students who know how to find a great outfit on a student-friendly budget.
Some are representing the casual and comfy look with sweaters, basic tees and jeans, while others are pairing their look with leggings and boots, even adding a military- style jacket as well.
Then there are some sporting edgier, fun pieces that make their outfit something worth taking a double look at and maybe even taking a few notes from.
Whatever the case may be, Interrobang set out to find students who broke the style mold and rocked a look that made it their own. These three students did just that.
Name: Emily Messenger
Program: Fashion Merchandising
Described Style: Grandma Chic.
“I like new pieces, but I like to add jewels and embellishment and all that stuff. I also like big sweaters and furs. I'm really inspired by 1940s, 1950s fashion,” Messenger said. “Something you can see a super old lady in a movie wearing, I love that, Old Hollywood.”
Today's Look: Messenger works at a thrift store, and happened to thrift a few of her pieces for this look, including Aldo boots she found for $9 and the fur she's rocking.
Her dress is from American Eagle, and jacket from H&M.
Messenger usually buys her accessories cheaply, and found today's from Ardene.
“You have to pick,” she said. “It's all about knowing what you want and looking for it.”
Preferred Shops: “I love [Hudson's] Bay because they have everything you could possibly want. You get a lot of lower price points and you get the higher end names.”
Messenger also thrifts a lot.
“I'm like the queen of the thrift store. I can always find everything that I want.”
Name: Jaylee Warrick
Program: Personal Support Worker (PSW)
Described Style: “I would say cute, classy [and] cool.”
Today's Look: A skirt with a crop top paired with a scarf and boots. (Makes for a nice fall outfit, when the weather is still warm and sunny).
Preferred Shops: Urban Planet and Sirens. (Both are affordable for students).
Name: Adnan Selimovic
Program: Broadcast Television
Described Style: “A clean, casual look. Semi-formal, but not. It's relatively affordable.”
Selimovic pointed to affordability as an important factor considering students do not have a lot of money to spend.
Today's Look: Levi jeans from Hudson's Bay, boots and jacket from Winners and a sweater from Marshalls.
Preferred Shops: “I go to Marshalls and Winners a lot because you can find good deals on brand name stuff. The rest is probably online.”
