Dress Code

Amy Anderson

Name: Amy Anderson
Year: Senior
Major: Classics and Archeology
Hometown: Charlotte

Amy is wearing: Shoes from PTA, tights given to her by her grandma, a skirt from Urban Outfitters, a turtle neck and plaid shirt from Goodwill and a jacket she bought in Paris.

Amy describes her style as New Romantic inspired by London in the ’80s, and her style icons include musicians Siouxsie and the Banshees and Allison Mosshart. Amy takes an interesting approach to fashion — she takes her style inspiration from characters that she imagines. She said she sees fashion as a form of playing dress up and a way to take a few minutes to creatively express herself. Amy’s favorite places to shop include Goodwill, vintage stores and thrift stores. Amy said she likes seeing people wear Doc Martens, knit scarves and sweaters, chartreuse, ’70s upholstery-style prints, leopard, and vintage pieces.

Amy’s outfit is dark and a little rough around the edges, but these qualities are what make it look interesting. While most people would shy away from such a dark color palette, Amy works it into her outfit in a way that looks effortless and unique.

Amy’s style advice: “College is a last hurrah before we have to go out into the working world. You don’t have to look chic and polished if you don’t feel like it. Take advantage of it.”
