Autumn has begun on campus. UNL students are busy with midterms and other commitments. However, on their way to class, they are dressing to impress. Everyday on campus I see the unique outfits student’s put together. Outfits range from a trendy mom jeans and a mock neck top combo to an athletic style with jogger pants and a t-shirt. Seeing these outfits, I was curious to talk with UNL student’s and discuss their personal style and how their outfit shows their personality.
When I arrived at the Nebraska Union, I saw Madelynn Priester looking trendy as ever in her flannel from Shein, t-shirt from Target, straight leg jeans from PacSun, and Nikes. She feels her outfit shows that she is a little more angsty than she actually is but also shows that she can be comfortable while also still following the trends.
“My style is chic in my own way,” Priester said.
I travelled around the union some more and found Jacob Dexter sitting by the window studying away. Dexter was wearing a very laid-back outfit with a Puma hat from Dick’s, a white long sleeve that his mom gave him, jogger pants also from Dick’s, and Nike shoes. His outfit shows the athletic side of his personality.
Next, I walked outside of the Nebraska Union and found Mig Shyaka on his way to grab dinner. He looked straight out of a magazine with his leather jacket that was given to him, button-up from Polo, black ripped jeans from American Eagle, and Chelsea boots from Amazon. His outfit displays how he can be himself but also keep it simple.
In the middle of campus, Rukhshona Islamova, sophomore journalism major with a minor in fashion design, merchandising, and textiles was sprawled out at a table on the backside of the Nebraska Union. She looked effortless in a jacket from Amazon, a t-shirt from PacSun, bell bottom jeans from Forever 21, and black high-top converse. She believes her “caring is cool” shirt describes her personality perfectly.
“I like to go through all my life with a very positive and optimistic mentality,” Islamova said.
A season change also calls for a fashion change on UNL’s campus and students are killing the game.
