Lysan Sequeira picks out three UTM students who stand out for their fashion sense
Who: Alicia Santos
What: First-year management student
Where: Oscar Peterson Hall Wearing: H&M blazer, garage leggings
Style Inspiration: Lauren Conrad, Kelly Carlson, Julianne Hough, Blake Lively
I love the way Alicia pairs something casual and everyday like leggings with a dressy boyfriend blazer. This is the perfect combination of classic wardrobe staples with updated twists. The grey boots are a fun add-on and they give the outfit that extra oomph.
Who: Ansin Zhou
What: First-year commerce student
Where: Roy Ivor Hall
Wearing: Pride&Glory bomber vest, Zara plaid shirt, red Adidas Classic sneakers
Style Inspiration: Pharrell, Jay-Z
My favourite thing about Ansin’s outfit is the fun sneakers. Adidas Classics have been around for many years now, but they always seem to be in style. I love the playfulness of the bomber vest and how it matches the shoes.
Who: Adwoa Asare
What: Third-year political science and Italian student
Where: Colmon Commons Dining Hall
Wearing: patterned scarf from Rome, Boho handbag from Winners
Style Inspiration: Rihanna, anything tribal/ethnic
Adwoa mixes a Bohemian purse with studded flats for a surprising combination. It’s a challenge to successfully blend different textures when dressing, but she does it with confidence and ease. The beanie hat and patterned scarf are great additions.
