Street Style

What is Street Style?

Street Style is fashion that emerges not from the runways in New York, Paris, and Milan, but from the real runways: sidewalks.

This new She-bomb feature will highlight Amherst College students (and maybe even a few professors) who filter elements of high fashion through the lens of their personal style.  So dress to impress and remember, the sidewalk is your runway. I’ll be watching.

Spotted: Vanessa Prill ’12, outside of Fayerweather after a pro-seminar on the Italian Renaissance. Vanessa’s a European Studies major from Paris, France. 

Beaming after an hour and twenty minutes with Bramante. Who wouldn’t be?

So cash.

 What Vanessa’s Wearing:

Black AG Jeans:
Brown Leather J.Crew Boots with Gold Hardware:
Black tuxedo-detailed, double pocket sweater, layered with gray knit.  Both pieces by Sandro:
Épice Printed Scarf:

Every great outfit starts with great shoes; these are great shoes.

Sando Cardigan: Double-pocket detail.
