The Chic Daily saw major style and trend incorporation this week on the Tempe Campus. To start, 90s Clueless-inspired prep was all the rage with thigh high tights, saddle shoes, mini pleated skirts and argyle prints. We also spotted bold patterns that spiced up outfits with floral, chevron, stripes, cheetah print and Renaissance patterns. Finally, we tipped our hats to the amazing amount of on-trend pieces incorporated into outfits: studded and spiked shoes, cross textiles, printed and colored tights, pointy flats, flannel shirts, combat boots, felt hats, anorak jackets (with and without leather sleeves), desert boots, leather leggings, suede wedge heels, oxford shoes and velvet. Such unique and inspiring outfits this week – keep pushing the style envelope, ASU!
Freshman Felicia Chaidez
Major/Concentration: Film and Media Studies
Style Inspiration: Old movies, particularly Anna Karenina, inspire Felicia.
Freshman Zhanfei Wei
Style Inspiration: Zhanfei is inspired by random things. Her pieces are mainly from her home country, China.
Junior John Turan
Major/Concentration: Civil Engineering
Style Inspiration: John resonates with urban and street style. This outfit is not something men his age would wear in his home country, Turkey.
First year PhD student, Tess Doezema
Major/Concentration: Human and Social Dimensions of Science and Technology
Style Inspiration: Tess’s on-the-go outfit was inspired by the thick, dark clouds making for an overcast day.
Senior Vanessa Soto
Major/Concentration: Double major in Museum Studies and Art History
Style Inspiration: Vanessa resonates with the surfer-billy style, because she loves to surf in California. She also describes her style as grungy and different, not liking to stick to one genre because fashion is always evolving. She lets her mood dictate her daily outfits; the day this photo was taken she was inspired by art patterns.
Junior Sam Perkins
Major/Concentration: Business (Communications)
Style Inspiration: Sam mostly wears hand-me-down, donated or gifted clothes from friends.
Freshman Mahima Kumar
Style Inspiration: Mahima doesn’t affiliate with a specific style, but sticks to what is currently trendy.
Freshman McKenzie Urias
Major/Concentration: Chemical Engineering
Style Inspiration: McKenzie likes to take the extreme of everything, so the day this photo was taken she was going for an all-over preppy look, though she doesn’t necessarily identify her style as preppy. She likes to experiment and not just be one specific style.
Senior Xander Mach
Major/Concentration: Double major in Business and Psychology
Style Inspiration: Everyday life and people are what inspire Xander’s style.
Sophomore Shelby Stringer
Major/Concentration: English (Literature)
Style Inspiration: Shelby is inspired by her mom’s style, but with a grungy, modern twist.
