Rent the Runway has studied the hottest fall trends and wants to help you get ready for back to school! They're offering up a $500 (!!!) gift card to a lucky winner so you can bring the looks from the runway to your campus. Enter here.
For someone who adores UFC, Scaachi definitely does not dress the part (though if you bought her a "Tap out" t-shirt she'd probably love you forever). The first time I was formally introduced to Scaachi, she was dressed like Jackie O. (it was Halloween), but since then I've always admired her feminine style.
Allow me to introduce you to Tatomme, probably the only girl I've ever met who can truly pull off a chambray jumper. And by "pull off" I mean "work it like she's got Rachael Zoe dressing her and she's walkin' down a runway." I just met her this semester, and I was instantly impressed with her style.
I work with Renee and whenever we work together, I always catch myself stealing glances at her fantastic outfits. I love how Renee makes fashion look so easy, like she didn't even try but somehow always looks totally chic and put together.
What is Thompson Rivers University? Where is Thompson Rivers University? To tell you the truth, I have no idea. (Without some Wikipedia, of course.) All I know is that a very creative and fashionable girl named Kim works that campus like a runway. She recently sent us an email asking that we "expand our [Campus Couture] idea and take a look at a student from Canada!"
The best part about having Meredith as my roommate for the past two years has to be my unlimited access to her wardrobe. I can’t even complain about her taking up the entire closet because it’s always the first place I look when I need something cute to wear out.
I met Taylor a year ago and after attending a university where everyone showed up to class in their sweats or PJ pants, her look was a breath of fresh air. Her style is a unique blend of thrifted and vintage with new basic pieces, and a collection of accessories that add perfectly to every outfit.
Ashley lives in the room next door to mine so I see her a lot. Yet somehow, every time I spot her in the hall (or lounging on her bed) she’s wearing something different that looks amazing on her. Ashley's got serious style. She not only knows what looks good, but she knows how to put things together that other people wouldn’t think of. And it always works.
I knew I wanted to feature Amalia for my fashionista-of-the-week from the moment I saw her walking to Psych class, leggings tucked into her buckled riding boots and a funky bright-blue American Apparel zip-up on top.
She’s a senior and while she may be dealing with a bad case of Senioritis, her style certainly isn't. No matter what time she wakes up in the morning - sometimes ten minutes before class...and sometimes ten minutes after it's started - Jessica always stays fly and manages to pull on something cute.
I’ve known Meagan since elementary school, and she’s always been one of the happiest people I know (she’s a cheerleader so she has to be, I guess). Her clothing choices are always full of color and spunk, and she is the definition of cute: a tiny body with a big personality that shines through her outfits.
Meet my childhood friend, Alex! He’s one of the best dancers I know, and represents the new era of fashion that incorporates a street style mixed with urban chic. Every time I see him he’s always dancing; whether it be popping and locking while talking, or doing the finger tut. And all the while in Nike Dunks and a sick graphic tee.
If there's one girl who's got some fashion courage it's Lauren. I spotted her on campus because, well, it's impossible not to spot her. She's always decked out in bright colors, bold accessories and some serious confidence. Oh, and her perfect hair helps, too.
Even though she isn’t in college anymore, Sarah still exudes the typical college girl enthusiasm for new clothes and the word “sale.” When I approached her to take a picture of her look, she agreed... but only if I took a picture of the back of her skirt. She wanted to show off the best parts of her look: the pretty metallic details and ruffles next to the rich color of her scarf.
Meet Chloe. Whenever I see her on campus, she always has the cutest outfits on that make you think of picnicking in green meadows and somersaulting across the grassy field. Her style is always really fresh with girly touches like headbands and hair pins, and plenty of gold-toned jewelry to go with. And no one has ever seen her without a cloth bag. Ever.
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 (and guys!) on campus to get a few pics and get some tips on their personal style. And maybe a restraining order or two.
