Mizzou's Got Style: Pretty Hippie, Swank Zig-zags and Vintage Flair

Mizzou students broke out their finest spring attire last week including sandals, shades and shorts that are to die for. Read on to see who we spotted rocking these spring trends, and see what fashionistas and stores inspired them!

Pretty Hippie

Last week, freshman psychology major Brenna Metrew used the weather to her advantage and rocked an adorable mini sundress. She paired the tiered dress with cool aviators and brown t-strap sandals for a hippie look! For fashion inspiration, Metrew looks to another blonde bombshell: “Blake Lively is just perfect,” Metrew said. “I love everything about her style!” The stylish freshman also advised readers to “dare and wear something that [they] normally wouldn’t!” Dare to be different!

Swank Zig-zags 

“I was just saying how i wanted to be in a street style blog,” freshman biology and psychology major Dylan Weber excitedly said as I approached him. He was right to expect to have his picture taken; his zig-zag bermuda shorts were a show-stopper! “I think I have a really classic American style,” Weber told CGM. “I’m a huge fan of the classic nantucket style, so i try to do a really modern twist on that.” When asked for fashion advice, Weber said this: “Fashion is universal, but style is really individual. Always dress for your body type, dress for the season and go with what makes you comfortable.”

Vintage Flair

Senior magazine journalism major Joanna Demkiewics bases her style off of comfort. “My trousers are definitely the most comfortable thing,” Demkiewics said. “I got these from Urban Outfitters and they are literally like wearing sweat pants. I feel that way too wearing dresses and outflowing skirts. I think it’s so sweet when people are like ‘oh you look so cute’ and really you just throw it on!” Demkiewics also finds it important to finds stylish pieces for a bargain: “I’m really cheap, so at Maude Vintage I usually trade in clothes that I’m kind of sick of and I do a trade. You can find some gems there!”
