How does your style reflect your personality? Photography by Kelly Russo, '14

Style is an extension of our personalities. The clothes that we wear can be a statement to the world. Here at Juniata, students talk about their personal style and the statements that they want their clothes to make about them.

"Given a choice, I would like to wear jeans and T-shirt, because I want to show people I'm a person they can be close with and that I'm not too complicated."

Connor Dimond '17, Summerhill, Pa.

"Well, I like to dress up to go to class, although I wear comfy cloths on stressful days and test days. People call me a hipster. I like to wear a lot of tribal shirts and colored jeans. My mom was a hippie so I guess that's why I dress this way. I would have to call my style 'hipster gone sophisticated.' I hope that my style shows people that I care about how I present myself and see through my funky patterns and designs that I am down-to-earth and friendly."

Emily Alexander '17 Harrisburg, Pa.

"I like to wear stuff I buy at thrift stores, because I like to be unique and to be an individual."

Faith Thoman '17, Spring Grove, Pa.

"I like to wear clothes that I find comfortable. They could be dressy or comfortable, it doesn't matter. I think it says that I like to feel comfortable in my environment and situations that I am in, but I am also flexible with my environment and the people I deal with."

Amanda Matta '17, Elizabethtown, Pa.

"I like to describe my style as 'the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.' I like to think I'm pretty stylish in the things that I buy, but when it comes time to actually get dressed, I tend to gravitate towards worn-out jeans and T-shirts."

Marlene Matula '17, Juniata Online Journalist
