Campus Couture: Poppin’, Lockin’ Alex

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.

But it’s worth it to highlight fresh, unique wardrobe choices that show personality and the courage to wear what you believe in.

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.

He may be a dude, but his fashion inspires me. If only I could look that cool in a pair of shiny gold kicks.

Name: Alex
Year: 2011
Major: Business and Economics
Alex in 3 words: Loud. Passionate. Dance(r).

1) Describe your personal style.
My personal style is a mixture of different influences. I really love the colorful shirts and sneakers of the west coast but I also love graphic tees and crazy fitted hats. Essentially, I try to ensure that whenever I go out, no one else looks like me.

2) You can’t leave your house without your ________.
59fifty hat.

3) What is your favorite store to shop at?
DLTR, or any specialty shoe store. I don’t do much shopping at malls, I actually prefer to buy most of my stuff online.

4) What/who is the biggest influence on your style?
It would have to be hip-hop dance in general. Not rap; I’m not a baggy jeans and Tims kinda guy. I wear clothes that I can dance in. West coast style!

5) What’s your favorite trend, past or present?
I’ve recently become a fan of skinny jeans. Not Fall-Out skinny, but enough so that you can tuck your jeans into your kicks.
