Style inspiration comes in many forms, especially with a blended community like Central Michigan University. We hit the streets to see what influences students, what style means to them and how they describe themselves.
My Own. Unique. Street Style.
“I choose what I wear, I’m really not influenced by anything. It’s what makes me, well me.”

Versatile. Mood Setter. Day by Day.
“Elie Saab, Rachel Zoe, Mary Kate & Ashley, and Rihanna [inpsire me]. Fashion is a way to let people know who you are. It’s my major and I’ve loved it my whole life. “
Name: Angela Yates | Age: 22 | Hometown: Sterling Heights, MI
Different. Creative. Expression.
“I think I’m influenced by whoever is around me. I love the style I see when I’m in Detroit. I thought before, well, I don’t care what I wear. But that’s BS. We all care about what we wear. It’s a conscious decision we make, no matter what it is. Every single day.”
Name: Billy Schaver | Age: 20 | Hometown: Grosse Pointe, MI
Simple. Casual. Athletic.
“I love Calvin Klein and my favorite color to wear, for sure, is maroon. I love to mix and match simple things. Style to me, is self expression.”

“I am influenced by professional attire for my job, which is this dapper, sweater style.”
