the student curators JESSIE COLLIER (@jussssie) /// Jesse is a Fashion Media and Communications major at London College of Fashion, where she focuses on fashion photography. She is currently taking a gap year to explore fashion media, as well as create connections, do solo projects and freelance for JUSSSSIE before returning to finish college.

In London, guys wear loose-fitted dark-colored trousers with simple tees, and it is an easy way to look relaxed yet put together, perfect for running around town.”

JESSIE COLLIER (@jesusacostx) /// Jesus, a student at the University of Texas, is a 22-year old graphic/web designer, photographer and illustrator living in Austin. When he is not designing and coding, you can find him tweeting about pop culture, taking pictures of cool objects against bright colored walls, watching “Shrek” in Spanish because it’s a billion times funnier or drinking taro bubble tea. Acosta contributed illustrations to the November issue of Study Breaks. /// STYLE INSPIRATION: @gq, @complex, @asos /// GO-TO LOOK: “Ripped black jeans, a shirt with a crazy pattern and a denim jacket always. I’ve been really into monochromatic outfits lately, though.” /// JUST A THOUGHT: “Zendaya always looks incredible. She is so young and already a style chameleon. I’m also a big fan of Rihanna’s style. Who else could get girls to want to wear fur slides? No one. Also, Kristen Stewart. I’m so into her new androgynous style. She is killing it.”

KELSEY CADENAS (@KelseyCadenas) /// Kelsey is a student at the Savannah College of Art and Design studying Fashion Marketing and Management. She has interned for CollegeFashionista for three years, working in positions such as Style Guru, Social Media Intern and Lifestyle Editor. Cadenas is also a Stylist for Tipster, an online fashion consulting app, where she gives fashion and styling tips to users. As a student, she has created collaborative content for companies such as Urban Outfitters, MTV Style and Palmers. /// STYLE INSPIRATION: @refinery29, @thefashioncitizen, @amyvagabondd /// GO-TO LOOK: “A Bardot bodysuit, distressed denim and a statement shoe. I never go anywhere without a good pair of statement shoes.” /// JUST A THOUGHT: “As people spend more money on wearable technology, fashion will become a mixture of tech and clothing. There have been talks about garments that change clothes, styles that shift shapes and jackets that have built in body temperature control.”

SARAH HALLAL (@sarah.hallal) /// Sarah recently completed her degree in Fashion Design from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, and is now continuing her studies in the school’s International Manufacturing and Product Development Advanced Program, where she is working with a team of twelve other students on a design project for Nike. Hallal plans to complete her Bachelor’s degree in Business Management, and wants to begin her career by working as an assistant designer in luxury fashion markets. /// STYLE INSPIRATION: @dchaussee, @marni, @miumiu, @designmilk, @saintheronshop /// GO-TO LOOK: “A fine gauge knit turtleneck under a pair of thrifted American Apparel brushed denim overalls with Adidas trainers, my optics, and an overcoat when it’s cold.” /// JUST A THOUGHT: “The blend between sport and high fashion will continue to grow, as well as the desire for long-lasting, better quality and environmentally friendly products.”
