It is my absolute pleasure to present this yearʼs FASHION ISSUE. When I was thinking of a concept for this edition, I tried to think about what really encapsulates “Howard Style.” And I think whatʼs beautiful, and why weʼre always crowned as a “fashion-forward” campus, is the fact that thereʼs no set style. We all come from different places with our own story and somewhere in those four years, our outlook on life changes. And in turn, our appearance transforms. Say what you want about some peopleʼs style (we certainly did on p.4), but you have to admit that for the most part, thereʼs a great deal of general effort that is put into our clothes. Our main spread touches on the “after” that happens at Howard. Itʼs almost as if we absorb the trends and styles of our founders and predecessors, even if those looks are 50 years dated. The pin curls, pencil skirts, blazers, trench coats, thrift sensation, broaches, lapel pins... it all comes from somewhere. So take a look around, and see how we have evolved and yet somehow not forgotten where we started.

Delving in the world of self-proclaimed thrifter Antionette Childs

oni, who describes her style as refined, sophisticated and artsy, mostly shops at thrift, consignment and specialty stores. The senior merchandising major says she believes outfits are like pieces of art and every day she gets to create a different one. For inspiration she looks to art and follows a lot of style blogs. “I thrift a lot so I have a lot of ‘older’ pieces. Unique thrift is my favorite place to shop. I can always find something there. When I shop I’m attracted to patterns and textures.” She also said how she prefers clothing from specialty and thrift stores because older clothes are better quality and “no one else will have it!” She has a special place in her heart for pieces from a specific decade. “I have a lot of 80s and 90s pieces, but my favorite is the 50s. It’s so feminine. I like to shop for dresses and skirts a lot. If I could wear a skirt or dress everyday I would never wear pants!”

HOWARD STYLE A note to all the baby suit offenders:

An editors very, very facetious rant about a certain style profile. tʼs first important to say that Iʼm not a guy, and just like many things you all do, the intent behind “baby suits” is beyond me. Maybe youʼre hoping that the day Donald Trump comes to campus, heʼll notice your slim fit, burgundy pants and hire you... right off the Yard. Or maybe youʼre thinking, hey that cutie over there is really going to dig my tie clip. Whatever your reason, I feel it my duty to address this epidemic; one that I didnʼt realize existed until I got to HU. Youʼre not a billionaire just yet. Youʼre just going to class in Douglass. Just because you have an iPad, does not make you an entrepreneur. And whatʼs in that thrifted briefcase you lug around? Itʼs so thin, when you turn it sideways it disappears. My guess is you keep it well stocked with coloring books and chocolate milk. While I could go on and on about the pocket squares, the lapel pins, the anorexic ties... I will digress to the bottom of your ensemble. If youʼre out there reading this and thinking “am I a baby suit offender?” there is undeniably one thing that separates regular men in suits that have to, say, go to their internship or the SOB, and Mr. Babysuit. Guys, stand up and look down. Can you see your ankles? Do you have a cuffed pant just to accentuate your smoking loafers and those argyle socks you carefully picked out? And worst of all, when it gets warm, do you just forgo socks and let those, bare, ashy knobs show? Well, I think you have your answer.
