Spring Style

Students describe their sense of fashion as the warm weather approaches

Everyone is ready for summer, and as finals kick in and the semester comes to an end we are ready to receive and soak up the nice weather. Students all over campus enjoy dressing up and not having to layer up as the warm weather approaches. On campus students were asked how do they mostly describe their style. This is what they had to say. “The way I describe my sense of style I would have to say that it really depends on my mood. I would say for sure that my style is different from everybody else, because I like to stand out.” Say’s Ana Gomez, a health specialization major here at Necc. Although her everyday style depends on how she’s actually feeling she definitely considers herself different. “I like wearing different pieces of clothing and creating unique pieces, for example cutting pants and shirts. I don’t like to look like everyone else. I like to be unique, but I am always open to telling people how I styled whatever it is I’m wearing,” says Gomez.

Other students are more in between  casual and simple when describing their sense of style.   “My sense of style is mostly on the comfortable sporty side. My style describes my personality. Comforting and laid back. I like to be comfortable most of the time, but when it’s time to dress up I try my best to mix it up between casual and cute,” says Janilka Gonzalez, a student involved in our EMT program here at NECC. There were also students who didn’t really describe their style in a particular way “ I don’t really  have a style whatever I think is cute, I buy. It can either be very girly one day, and then I can look like a skater the next,” says Lisbeth Pita, a business transfer.

I don’t like to look like everyone else. I like to be unique,

Whether you have a way to describe your style or you don’t it’s fun to be different and creative and to just be you. Plain, creative, casual, unique is what makes everyone different and that is the fun in fashion. There are no rules to how you want to express yourself.
