Finals Fashion: Street Style From CU Boulder

Gone are the days when finals fashion was synonymous with sweats at the University of Colorado, Boulder. While comfort remains paramount, the concept has redefined itself. We heard a similar sentiment echoed from every fashionista we spoke to: I feel better, am more successful, motivated and inspired when I believe look my best. Yes, style and fashion means something different to everyone, the point is what you feel on the inside is expressed by what you wear on the outside. While walking around campus on a sixty-five degree December day right before finals, these eight fashion standouts caught our eye- each with their own specific point of view and style- as described in their own words. And that's how you ace great style.
