Campus Style Watch: September 2015

Note: This article was published online for the campus newspaper Sidelines at MTSU. Campus style watch is all about seeing what MTSU student’s are wearing. For this project, I went around campus photographing students with an emphasis on their outfits. During this, I would also ask them questions about their style inspiration.

Walking on campus is entirely different than walking the halls of high school for a variety of reasons. My number one favorite difference: no more awful dress codes. Students are finally free to express themselves and their unique sense of style. On any given day, you will pass by numerous students who are not afraid to let their personalities shine through their clothing.

Featured below are students whose outfits caught my eye and some of the things that they say inspire their styles.
