With the beginning of another school year at Conestoga, the college’s hallways turn into the students’ personal runway again. Full of people from all over the world, the college is a place where you will find a variety of styles.
Here are some of the fashion highlights of this week’s Fashion ICONdors:
“I think it changes from day to day. It depends how I wake up feeling. If I’m feeling really down, then a nice outfit will make me feel better,” Jennifer Muir said about how she decides what to wear. “Sometimes people compliment you or you compliment them on their outfit and it starts a conversation. That sort of thing is really nice.”
Muir’s outfit was well suited to overcast skies and rain. This cosy ensemble paired with her coffee cup was reminiscent of reading inside on a rainy day while her smile and cotton candy coloured hair brought brightness to her look.
“I’m a pretend grown up. If you have to wear a bag and shoes, they might as well be fun,” said Kara Judge, coordinator of Conestoga’s broadcast radio program.
The glittery TOMS and cupcake backpack Judge sported added fun to an otherwise casual but professional look.
“I just wear whatever I want and uh, I like this brand, so. . .” Connor Caddigan mentioned casually.
Caddigan’s rolled up jeans and moccasins made him look a touch more stylish than just jeans and a T-shirt would have. This was a good transitional outfit for the end of summer and beginning of fall because moccasins are perfect for autumn while the rolled jeans and T-shirt keep it cool.
With regard to her style, Sarah Maxner said, “It’s an expression of who I am, for people to see who I am without having to talk to me.”
Wearing variations of one colour in the same outfit is a bold move. Topped with a glittery, hot pink hat, her look expresses uniqueness and fun.
“I love T-shirts and jeans because it’s comfortable — these are the reasons,” Luc Phan stated. “In the summer, I usually wear shorts and a T-shirt and a snapback.”
Phan was ready for fall with a button-up shirt patterned with acorns and oak leaves. His shoes were blindingly white, contrasting nicely with his black pants.
“I just like to wear whatever I want, just to feel comfortable in. That’s it,” Ginni Puri commented.
While continuing to look very classy and business-like, a loose-fitting jumpsuit proved to be quite comfortable for Puri. The chic stripes added dimension to her look.
