When we saw sophomore business major Yujie Huang walking across our campus catwalk with this unique and nostalgic version of a chiffon maxi skirt, we had to track her down! She loves raiding the racks of thrift stores and discovering treasures like the ones she was wearing last week! Marie Claire magazine guides Huang when she’s having a fashion obstacle and she advised readers to simply take a look in the mirror if they ever question an ensemble.

If CGM ever decided to create a list of stylish professors at Mizzou, French graduate student Elisabeth Aguilar would easily land near the top. Aguilar describes her style as “classic with trendy accents.” “I love European style in general because it’s really sophisticated and it’s not over done,” Aguilar said. She confides in small boutiques in major cities when on a fashion scavenger hunt and she made it clear that Nordstrom is always a go-to spot if boutiques aren’t in reach. When asked for fashion advice, Aguilar said this: “I think just keep it simple and be yourself; whatever you wear, wear it with confidence because that reflects who you are.”
