This week, we would like to introduce you to three, trendsetting NYU Law students. Ijeoma Eke ’16 (our Lifestyle Editor), Samantha Coxe ’17, and Patrick Taqui ’17 (our Managing Editor). Per usual, we ask our contributors three questions:
1. How would you describe your style?
2. What, or who, inspires your style?
3. What is your favorite article of clothing?
I would describe my style as tomboy meets bum chic.
I am inspired by street fashion and ’90s fashion, specifically ’90s sitcoms such as A Different World, The Cosby Show, and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
[My] favorite article of clothing is the shirt I’m wearing. I bought it off of EBay.
I would describe my fashion style as playful & dynamic. I easily go from sporty-chic, with a pair of ripped denim jeans, a leather jacket and Nikes to edgy, with a studded jacket, black choker, and leather booties to everything in between!
My style is influenced by current trends in magazines, such as Vogue and Elle; what celebrities are wearing, especially Gigi Hadid; my mood; and the music I am listening to the morning I get dressed.
My favorite article of clothing is my high-waist, black, ripped-at-the-knee jeans. Not only are they unbelievably comfortable, but they are the perfect, basic item for any look.
[My style is] versatile. I’m drawn to unusual articles or distinctive patterns, and I structure my outfits to highlight a particular color or element. I’m pretty comfortable in formal wear, business wear, business casual, and streetwear.
My dad is pretty old school in the sense that he is extremely attentive to detail and decorum. My mother has a bold, irreverent style that expresses her magnanimous personality. I’ve picked up tips… from [them and] many of the people I’ve worked with.
Three [articles of clothing] I care about (in no particular order): socks, jackets and ties/fedoras. OK, four things.
