Fashion is everywhere, from magazine ads to the person walking next to you on your way to class.
Boulder definitely has its own sense of style, especially compared to the major fashion ports of edgy LA or chic Manhattan, what with its slouchy bags found in the hippie stores on Pearl Street or the feather extension clips girls often sport in their hair.
This reporter hit the campus to find someone who stood out in the crowd.
Courtney Ward is an 18-year-old freshman open-option major. Ward sported a navy and white horizontal striped quarter-sleeve scoop-neck tee with some light blue denim shorts. She found both at Francesca’s, at the boutique’s location on 29th St. in Boulder. Her brown military-style boots, which have become a peaking trend, were found online.
As far as her fashion inspiration goes, Ward said she doesn’t have one particular source she looks to.
“I wouldn’t say that I have (any specific) person as a fashion influence, but I really like to look at magazines,” Ward said. “I really like Lucky and Vogue and stuff like that. Even though I can’t afford any of that stuff, it’s still fun to look at.”
So if you’re walking around campus in a fashionable outfit and see someone with a camera, work your best runway walk and flash those pearly whites. You may just be the next person featured as getting “bould” with fashion in Boulder.
