Letter from the editor

When I compare my personal style from freshman to senior year, I realize my wardrobe has evolved immensely.

I traded T-shirts for breezy blouses and athletic wear for a pair of leggings and boots. There was a point in time where I figured out that my style needed to grow up, even though parts of me were still freshman-year Kathryn such late-night Taco Bell runs and the over-excitement of fall coffee drinks. Over time, my style received a modern overhaul. Soon enough I would need clothes for job interviews, late nights with friends and outfits to slip on for a quick trip to the grocery store.

This fall, The Student Printz wanted to give the student body something different—a reason to love fashion and not turn away from it— and incorporate it into your every day style. We have always done women’s fashion, but we have now introduced the first ever-men’s guide to college fashion. We styled men with versatility and exceptional charm with funky bow ties, striking socks and comfy sweaters.

This edition has been one of my favorites because it is simply a guide to dressing well for college students and seeing how easy it can be to have a personal style. Having a great style does not have to be hard and complex as that chemistry exam you just studied six hours for. Whether you are heading to class, working at an office for an internship or gussying up for a night out with that special someone, there are outfit ideas for every affair.

We also included a Lazy Laundry Guide (Pg. 11) for those whom think clothing care is a foreign language. And when you find yourself stumped with what to pair with what, the color wheel offers endless options for creating outfits (Pg. 10).
So step outside of your comfort zone and look toward the future, where a more grown-up version of you is just around the corner.
