- Burgundy Skinnies

“I am inspired by Zooey Deschanel and the 60s. What am I excited to wear this season? My roommate’s new clothes.”
- Keeping it Casual
Dennis Sherry, 20, Junior, Cinema
“I don’t know what inspires me. This morning my pants were dirty so I wore these old ones instead.”
- Worn and Torn Moto Jeans
Char Mac, 29, Junior, Communications, and Dubie
“I like worn jeans because they are edgy. I like to do my own thing. Today I added a country feel with these boots and a little hint of sexiness with my off the shoulder sweater. This season I am really excited to wear cashmere and over-sized sweaters.”
- Back to Black
Luis Lechuga, 21, Senior, Art History

“I like to shop in thrift stores. My favorite is Savers in San Jose. That’s where I got this huge denim jacket that I wear over everything.”
