Head Of the Class: Student Style
I bumped into three fashionable students heading to class: Sarah Merrill, Mariam Fageri, and Zlatina Pacheva. These students dare to say, “sweatpants be gone” in the face of rain, exams, and exhaustion by demonstrating that fashion can be utility and stylish while hitting the books.
Sarah Merrill: A typical rainy day in Vancouver is no match for Sarah, her Hunter rain boots in classic black splash puddles away as she heads to class. Wearing a 1920’s silhouette coat, a cowl neck scarf, and Cheap Monday skinny jeans, Sarah is noticed walking down Simon Fraser University (SFU) hallways, which could double as her catwalk.
Mariam Fageri: All great artist dress in black, and Mariam is no expectation. What stood out for me on Mariam was her brushed gold earrings and gold-embroidered vest. Her cowl neck scarf is on trend, but her unique persona is what makes this outfit standout.
Zlatina Pacheva: Often imitated but never duplicated is the tweed coat, skinny jean, and platform shoes that Zlatina wears. Her look is on trend for the season, but her presentation is flawless, easy and relaxed as she wears her look with confidence.
