Campus Couture: Ashley from Lakehead
[While everyone is fabulous in their own right, we thought we should celebrate the campus fashionistas of the world for their continued excellence in not looking like a hot mess for class. So, we started stalking those girls on campus (yeah, we hunted down Renee at Northwestern !) to get a few pics and get some tips on their personal style.
And maybe a restraining order or two.
But it’s worth it to highlight fresh, unique wardrobe choices that show personality and the courage to wear what you believe in. You think you've got some major style? Know someone else who's always looking ferosh? Think the world needs to see what she can do? Send us an email with some photos and she could be the next fashionista celebrated right here.]
I’ve known Ashley since she introduced herself to me in grade 10 science class. She was always bold, not only in personality, but also in style. Ashley plays by her own rules and has one of the most unique senses of fashion I have ever seen. She loves sports and all things athletic, so the majority of her wardrobe consists of items from Lululemon and Under Armour. But Ashley somehow pulls those pieces into something uber-stylish by adding high-fashion accessories and making unexpected combinations.
She absolutely epitomizes “Sporty Chic,” which is HUGE this season, and always reminds me of Stella McCartney’s fabulous and sporty line for Adidas. Because who says you can’t mix high fashion with function? Not Ashley, that’s for sure.
Major: History and Education
1) Describe your personal style:
I like wearing neutrals, especially black, with a pop of color. Comfort is also my #1 priority; I have to sit through hours of class in my outfit, so it better be comfortable. I’m also a big fan of layering and love, love, love big, bold accessories.
2) Complete this sentence: I can’t leave your house without…
My cell phone. Totally addicted. As for fashion, probably a leather cross-body bag or my Ray Bans.
3) What is your favorite store to shop at?
Urban Outfitters. I don’t even know how to describe it. It reminds me of my childhood because it’s always so playful!
4) What/who is the biggest influence on your style?
Like I said before, comfort is most important to me, so all of my outfits are very wearable.
5) What’s your favorite trend, past or present?
I don’t really follow trends much. But I do really like the bright neons and spandex from the ’80s!
