Shane Pedraza, junior, architecture

Pedraza defines her style as “conservative stripper.” Although Pedraza said she typically rocks sequins, today she sports a flowing bohemian dress under a chunky sweater cape.

Pedraza said her wardrobe has one constant: tights.



“I never wear pants, hate pants, no pants,” Pedraza said.

Favorite fashion trend: “I still like color blocking with solid top and solid bottom because it makes everyone’s form look good.”

Least favorite fashion trend: “No more floral print, because it’s been used to its utmost and should just stop.”

Advice to a fashion defunct friend: “Always add color; all black is not good.”

Nataani Tome, sophomore, film production

Tome said he mixes intellectual and contemporary styles to form his look. Sharply dressed men he spots on the street serve as inspiration for his style. He said he’s going for a very specific look, for which he has coined a term.

“‘The man of solace’ is exactly what I’m going for right now.”

Favorite fashion trend: “I’ve been feeling that sport jacket kind of trend, I’ve seen in a lot of movies. It’s power and authority in one.”

Least favorite fashion trend: “Taylor Gang … that whole snap-back sub culture … whatever looks like Wiz Khalifa.”

Advice to a fashion defunct friend: “Go talk to (your) sister or read GQ.”
