NYU students have to be some of the best dressed ever. I love the pop of color in the first girl, the fit of the jacket in the second, and the thin belt in the last. Thanks, Scott, for a consistently excellent blog.
I am so glad to see these photographs. I work on a big univ. campus and often play a game with myself, by watching students come and go to class to see if I can pick out the most stylish outfit of the day.
Fashion, in my view, starts from the bottom up — from the streets, from the individuals and artists who are daring and who, often, lacking resources for high-priced designer labels, find a way to create inspiration in the clothes they wear in spite of minimal resources. Anyone can look good and be stylish given enough resources. I find that a lack of resources inspires more creativity than wealth.
Nice girls all three of them. The human mind is funny though, I found my self comparing the three against each other, immediately, as I saw them in the same picture. It is so obvious that only one of them can be number one. And my eyes are drawn to that one person only. And yet I would never compare your fotographs that picture one person each, to each other.
Can young women ever look bad? I, too, loved the ‘pop’ in the first, but that look works only on the young and beautiful. The belted sweater, however, is good and classic for anyone [without a bit gut!]
Love it. Screw put together, and screw tailored. This is daily, going to class, treading around the city, way cooler than uptown and 5th avenue style. I repeat: way cooler. And they look hot in a way that doesn’t compromies their cred.
Here’s to the street! Take your 4 inch platforms and shove ‘em. This is realistic beauty and urban style at its best.
sart you should head up to 116th and broadway sometime to check out the columbia/barnard kids. i’ve often marveled at how well put together they are, though it’s different from the downtown chic of these nyu girls.
Although their outfits all could be slightly better with small changes… I think everyone needs to keep in mind that they look pretty damn good for 20 year olds!! I sure didn’t look that stylish when I was in college. Of course I didn’t live in such an inspirational city either… love it!
I am a student at UNC and I am so jealous of the NYC style. I know North Carolina isn’t exactly fashion capitol USA but there is not even a remnant of this marc-jacobs-ish style. Only PoloRL and Vineyard Vines here. This campus needs a style intervention. Perhaps this is my native New Yorker coming out…
