Mizzou's Got Style: Cool & Eclectic, Dapper Dockers & A Splash of Color

Mizzou is about way more than black and gold. Students on campus broke out their dapper duds accented with pops of bright color this week, and CGM was on campus to capture their fabulous style. See who we caught looking extra colorful!

Cool & Eclectic

When we spotted freshman business major Miah Hayes, she was giving us a dose of Janelle Monae with her mod updo, preppy button-up, fun harem pants and oxfords. “I like combinations and trends put together by Rihanna and Ciara,” Hayes said about inspiring fashionistas. “But I always add my own taste to the outfits I admire from them both.” When it comes to putting an ensemble together, Hayes advised CGM to go bold: “I just try to be daring. It’s okay to be different and mix different colors and fabrics, and you don’t have to be ‘matchy matchy’ to be cute, just be yourself!”

Dapper Dockers

Before I stopped junior political science and business management major Thomas Stovall, I asked a friend if he usually dressed like that. “It would be strange if Thomas ever went a day without dressing up,” freshman Imani Chambers said. How could I not take Stovall’s picture? His dapper taste and keen sense of color coordination is that of a professional stylist. It’s no question that GQ magazine plays a huge role in Stovall’s fashion inspiration. He also gave credit to Scott Disick and Tom Ford for paving some of his stylish ways. “My style is trendy, but trendy to my standards,” Stovall said. “I always try to do something different, like color blocking and patterns. It’s not common for males to do it, but it’s trendy to me.” Stovall also clued us in to what goes through his head when he’s putting an ensemble together: “A question that I ask myself is, ‘will anybody else have this on today?’ I recommend that people just try different stuff. I feel like so many people are boxed in [in terms of] fashion.”

Splash of Color

“My style is basically classy with a little edge to it,” freshman business major Breyonna Taylor said. “I always like to put color with what I’m wearing just to make it pop!” Taylor raids the racks of Forever 21 in search of the perfect pieces. The main piece of advice she gives herself is to not over do it: “Just be yourself and let your [style] show who you are and just do what you feel!”
