Dawgs du Jour: spotlighting MSU’s most fashionable

Eric Irby
Amy Stubbs

It was another quiet weekend in Starkville, but in true college town fashion, there were small house parties and kick-backs livening up the night. As expected, many girls wore mini body-clinging dresses with stilettos, while other girls wore snap-backs, jerseys and Jordans and represented the polar extremems of femininity and masculinity.  Amidst the dark haze of one apartment stood a girl who merged the two styles effortlessly. Meet junior art major, Amy Stubbs:

Q: What are you wearing? 

A: I can’t remember where I found this beanie — it’s so old — but the jacket is thrifted, the dress is from Wet Seal and my shoes are Timberlands. 

Q: This is probably my favorite outfit I’ve seen tonight. What inspired this outfit? 

A: Aw, thanks. To be honest, it was something I saw on Tumblr. It wasn’t the exact thing, but you can say I was inspired by a picture. Plus it was just last minute. Don’t you just hate when you can’t find anything to wear, and you find it last minute and you’re unsure of it but at the same time you’re like “whatever, I’m going to wear it.”

Q: How would you describe your style? 

A: That’s hard. That’s always been a hard question. I guess you could call it tom-boy chic. I like to wear pieces guys would wear and accessories girls would wear. 

Q: Style must-have? 

A: A statement necklace piece. It’s essential. Anything bold, honestly. 

Q: What’s your favorite clothing line? High-end or low-end? 

A: That’s another hard one. I honestly don’t know because I thrift a lot. So I don’t really have a brand I like because I like a little bit of everything. 

Q: What’s your favorite trend at the moment? 

A: Joggers. I’m all about being comfortable and stylish. 

Q: What’s your least favorite trend at the moment? 

A: I’m tired of seeing comic book  print tights. You know the ones that have like “pow!,” “boom!” It’s like I don’t want to wear the next issue of Batman on body. 

Q: But what if they like comic books? 

A: Everyone that wears those do not like comic books. Some of them never have picked up a comic book a day in their life. People wear anything that’s in style. They just need to stop. 

Q: What do you think style should say about you? 

A: It should say you’re comfortable and not afraid to try anything new. 

Q: That sounds like your personality. Should your style reflect who you are? 

A: Yes, definitely. I dress in whatever moment I’m feeling at that moment. Dress for yourself, not for others. 

Q: OK, last question. Who’s your style icon? 

A: You’re going to laugh, but Zendaya Coleman. Her style is flawless, and she’s flawless.
