Fall is here, and with the season comes thousands of new impressionable students shaping NYU’s campus and aesthetic. With these new students comes an array of different styles, styles worn by youthful students still untouched by the city’s tendency to dress everyone in flat black. The diversity is definitely welcome. We at NYU Local hit the streets and tracked down some well-dressed freshmen around campus, asking them to characterize their personal swag in a few words and let us capture them on film. Here’s who we met!
Owen Smith Clark is a film and television major and Supreme/Hayden representative of the week. Owen is wearing Supreme Timberland boots, a Supreme hoodie, Kapital shirt and pants and a Bad Boys Bail Bond lanyard. When asked to describe his swag, Owen said that he likes “messy combinations.”
Ashley Tomaszewski is a liberal studies student who’s undecided about her major. She’s wearing classic checkered Vans, Wet Seal pants, a Salvation Army found sweater, and a Goodwill shirt. An added touch of class harkens from her earrings, a Smithsonian purchase. Ashley sums up her style as casual and collegiate. Watch out for this Rubin dwelling girl.
Ian Jackson is a liberal studies major who’s rocking Levi’s like nobody’s business. Ian is wearing a Levi’s jean jacket, Levi’s 511 jeans, a Topman shirt and Adidas Specials. To sum up his style, Ian used the words “dressed down denim.” You might spot this boy and his blues near Hayden, his current place of residence.
Kyle McConnell is a Stern Business major by day and Salvation Army scourer by night. Kyle is wearing Vans, simple jeans and a jacket he found at Goodwill. When asked how he would sum up his personal style he responded that it’s “a blend of vintage and Goodwill finds.” A current Rubinite, keep an eye out for this cool kid around campus.
Caroline Cunfer is a liberal studies major who characterized her way of dress as neutral and low key. Caroline is wearing an Alternative Apparel hoodie, Silence and Noise pants, a top from Forever 21, Free People shoes, and some great glasses, brand unknown. This Hayden resident may keep it down to earth, but her style is worth talking about.
Simple and put together outfits are always a win. So lose that lanyard, and go forth into New York City. We promise as long as you avoid your New York University 2017 shirt like the plague, we’ll never know you’re not an upperclassman.
