Fashionistas of the Month: November Edition

Name: Ryan MacDonald

Grade: Junior

Favorite store: “My favorite store is Foot Locker because I like shoes, and I think they put the whole outfit together.”

Online shopping or in-store? “I prefer in-store because you actually get to see what you’re buying in person and most likely won’t have to return it if you end up not liking it or if it doesn’t fit well.”

Fashion icon: “My fashion icon is Pete Davidson because his style got [him to date] Ariana Grande.”

Outfit: “My outfit is a blue fish taco hat from Vineyard Vines, a blue Nantucket hoodie from Beantown Apparel, grey Nike shorts, white Nike socks and white Converse.”

Favorite season: “My favorite season to dress for is fall because you can dress warm and cozy, but you can also wear shorts and t-shirts.”

Design time: “I pick my outfits the night before I lay them out on my floor, so when I get up, I can shower and get right into them.”

Favorite article of clothing: “My favorite article of clothing is hats because then I don’t have to brush my hair.”

Style word: “If I could use one word my style would be unorganized, because honestly, I don’t know how to match clothes.”

Advice for the fashion-challenged: “My best fashion advice would be to use your clothes as a way to express yourself and give people a statement without using your voice, kind of a “show don’t tell” type of thing.”
