[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 (like Kayla at Lakehead!) 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 know someone who’s got great style? 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.]
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.
Meredith can put together the perfect outfit for any occasion. She works at Ann Taylor, so she’s expert at putting together a professional-but-not-boring outfit for class or a job interview. Despite her college student budget, she can always throw together an elegant ensemble for a swanky dinner party. And when it’s time to have fun, she’s never without a cute/crazy/sexy outfit to party in.

1) Describe your personal style:
My personal style is the 1800s brought into modern day. I love jackets with details and buttons, puffy skirts, and ruffles. I wear very girly things but I tone it down with a masculine piece, like a jacket, to give it an eccentric look. I like wearing an outfit where I’m almost afraid to walk out the door, but once I do, I rock it. I like to push boundaries.
