Major: Journalism
Year: Senior

What are your favorite things to wear this season?

My favorite things to wear this season are oversized knitted sweaters, trousers, riding boots, and fur.

Where do you usually shop?

Half of my closet is thrifted. When I’m not thrifting, however, I like to shop at Zara, H&M, Mango, and Club Monaco.

What fashion faux pas do you witness on students too often?

I wouldn’t call them faux pas, but I think students don’t take their time to get dressed at Brooklyn College. I understand we’re all so busy, but I think every now and then students should ditch the sweatpants and sneakers and explore their creativity through dressing.

How much time do you put into your outfit for school?

I give myself about 45 minutes to get ready for school. I literally dress according to how I feel. Most of the times I come up with outfit ideas while in the shower and just go with that for the day.

Isak Tvilling WesterlundName: Isak Tvilling Westerlund

Age: 23

Major: Business

Year: Freshman

What are your favorite things to wear this season?

Hats, boots, and my ACNE leather jacket. I can’t really decide; I have three different styles in my wardrobe.

Where do you usually shop?

90 percent of my clothes are from Sweden, since I moved here six months ago. I don’t have any special favorite store. I usually buy clothes from different places that makes your style more unique. But in New York I like Uniqlo for basics and Steve Alan for more unique clothes.

What fashion faux pas do you witness on students too often?

I don’t want to step on anybody’s toes, but I see a lot of basketball shoes and sweatpants. It’s [as if] I, as a Swede, would wear hockey skates to college.

How much time do you put into your outfit for school?

I often decide the night before. After some time you have some setups of clothes that you know work good together, that is a time saver.

Isak is wearing:

Hat: Goorin Bros

Jacket: Belstaff

Down Vest: Uniqlo

Shirt: ACNE

Pants: Wolsey

Boots: R.M Williams
