    College Street Style: Allie Harris

    October 19, 2013

    The sun has been shining on us here at George Fox.

    I’m not going to lie, I haven’t been hating it. As much as I am excited about Fall, the sunshine is most welcome in my book.

    I found Allie Harris today, rocking a very denim, very 90’s inspired outfit.

    I had to snap a few pictures.

    Get the low down…

    Name: Allie Harris

    Year: Sophomore

    Major: Graphic Arts

    Hobbies: “Anything art, watching baseball, Disney and Pixar, and Intramural Volleyball.”

    Who or what inspires you? “I am addicted to “Friends” so I definitely think that inspires me. I just pick up on things around me, what I see others wearing, and what is popular now.”

    Where do you like to shop? “I love to shop at Forever 21, Love Culture, H&M, Thrift Shops, and Target.”

    Where is your outfit from? “I got the Jeans at Love Culture, my top is from Velour, my jacket is from Target, and my flats from Nordstrom’s.”

    How would you describe your personal style? “I have a very eclectic style, I go from sporty, to hipster, from t-shirt and jeans, to dressy. I am all over the board with style. I love to try new looks, and experiment with clothes.”

    Why did you choose this outfit? “I chose this outfit because it was a recent discovery, and its fun and different. A very 90’s look.”

    Any favorite trends? “I don’t follow trend as much as I probably should as a girl. I go with what I like, but I love the fall sweaters and boots look.”

    If you could raid anyone’s closet who’s would it be? “That is an impossible question! Maybe Emma Watson, Zooey Deschanel, or Rachel Green from Friends! Ha!”

    The Jeans

    Allie was rocking these high wasted denim skinny jeans from Love Culture.

    Super 90’s inspired and great for Fall.

    You can pair these jeans with a crop top like Allie did or keep it casual and pair it with a simple tee tucked in to show off the waist.

    The Jacket/Top

    Who doesn’t like a good denim jacket?
    You can do so much with a denim jacket. It’s great for layering in the cooler months.
    It can give your outfit that extra edge.
    The lighter shade of denim in the jacket pair nicely with the denim jeans.
    Still staying true to the 90’s but keeping it a bit more trendy with different colors of denim.
    Denim jackets will never go out of style.
    The crop top is a great statement piece.
    When you want to go out and be fearless.
    Allie did a great job working that crop top.
    The Shoes.

    These black flats from Nordstrom are a great practical yet stylish shoe.
    Great for walking around campus but the ruffled detail still gives them some character and makes them stand out.
    You can never go wrong with a nice pair of flats.
    You can wear flats every day with just about anything.

     I had a fun time talking with Allie and taking her picture.
    Style is real here at George Fox.
    Creativity is everything.
    I think I just might go watch a few episodes of Friends.
    Maybe I’ll channel my inner 90’s self.
    I challenge you all to go and break out your denim jackets.
    Bring the denim back!
    I dare you.
    After all, the dream of the 90’s is alive in Portland. Right?
    Stay stylish and stuff like that.
