Dressing to face the great indoors

Life under quarantine has done treacherous things to our clothing rotations. Putting together an outfit that I couldn’t go to bed in just seems wrong to me right now, and even thinking about putting on a pair of jeans feels physically repulsive.

The Close of my High Street Runway Career

So, after orientation, I began my shopping search that summer by taking things in a new direction. I looked for outfits I never got to wear in high school: crop tops my dad told me not to walk out of the house in.

The show must go on: MUF&D plans alternative to annual runway show

Miami University Fashion & Design (MUF&D) is the largest student organization on campus, hosting more than 40 events each year. Among these events is the annual fashion show: its largest and most popular occasion. Produced every spring, the event showcases the year’s hard work by putting together one of the largest student-run fashion shows in the nation. With the announcement of classes going remote for the remainder of the semester, MUF&D executive board members had to decide what to do, with their 14th annual show only a month away.

Timothée Chalamet isn’t afraid to play with femininity. Neither should you.

Timothée Chalamet could wear a trashbag and I would still bow down to him, begging Anna Wintour to let him grace the cover of Vogue. So, naturally, when it came time to review the fashion scene at this year’s Academy Awards, I forgot every other A-list star was there because I was so captivated by Chalamet’s Prada tracksuit.The moment he stepped on the carpet, it felt like a resurgence of Old Hollywood glamour came to dazzle the flashing cameras.

The dirty white sneaker

It isn’t necessarily news that white sneakers are on trend – they have been for years, as far back as 2018, which, in fashion terms, is a long time. Between my first pair of Adidas original Stan Smiths and my next pair of white Nike Air Force Ones, it’s also a trend I have completely embraced. Lately, I have even become interested in purchasing the chunky Filas that seem to garner a lot of negative attention. But something I’ve quietly wondered is why we buy white shoes and wear them when we go out, knowing full well that they'll be trashed by the end of the night?

A seventh-grader’s guide to TikTok

“What are you guys doing?” I called after, laughing as they continuously re-recorded themselves until they were in perfect sync. “You just wouldn’t understand, Ceili,” my brother Liam said. “It’s TikTok.” So, I became determined to understand.


Denim. It's not just for going out anymore.

Jeans: The comeback kings, even though they never left

Jeans: The layman’s pants. Daisy dukes. Bell bottoms. The Canadian tuxedo. High rise. Acid wash. Boot cut. Ripped. Frayed. Mom. Skinny. Denim. It’s a fabric that’s as versatile as it is constant. You can practically see denim’s decades-long, Rocky-style montage charting its ever-shifting success.

It’s a Party in a Box!

Feathers, sequins, battery powered lights — all nestled and flung together in a big red plastic tub in my closet.  If you need it, I probably have it.

Not your boomer’s blue-suede shoes

My shoes are a symbol of freedom and individuality. Being able to dress myself was a huge step toward becoming my own person, and as my ability to dress developed, so did my taste in sneakers.

Goodbye, Fila

The Chunky Sneaker. The Dad Tennis Shoe. The Fila. Since the emergence of the big sneaker trend about two years ago, there has been a considerable amount of debate surrounding this reemerging look.  Is it kind of … cool?  Or, does it need to die?

Hi, my name is Nina. Now, tell me about your closet.

Our personal styles mean so much to every one of us, even if we don’t always sport it in the most trendy or lavish ways. Our style is the product of our ever-changing environments. As The Student’s new Style Editor, I hope to give our audience some insight about how Miami has shaped the way we dress and personify ourselves — for better or worse — because my style has been affected by it firsthand.

Fashion tells YOUR story

From first through eighth grade, I attended a Catholic school that required a strict uniform: white polo shirt, khaki pants and brown or black shoes. And for those eight years, my sense of fashion told a story of imprisonment and boredom. And, when I eventually graduated and attended a public high school, I felt like I was being thrown to the wolves.  Don’t get me wrong, freshman year I wasn’t showing up to class looking like a slob, but I may or may not have owned a pair of green plaid Sperrys that I would match with my black Reebok ankle socks and cargo shorts.
