By Amber Montgomery, Glenvar High School
Julia Holland, a senior at Glenvar High School, was rocking her look Sept. 24. Here’s what she had to say about her chic, yet school-friendly, outfit.
Q: How do you express your style while following the dress code?
A: My style objective has never been to be provocative. … There are many ways to avoid dress code scandals, the primary being to cover your body!
Style doesn’t have to be outlandish; you can be bold and appropriate at the same time by making effective use of color, patterns, textures, etc.
Q: What influences your style?
A: My comfort level … and functionality. To be honest, I don’t get up every day and perform fashion miracles on myself. On days when I have to be at school early and dance at BCAT, I’ll often dress down.
Today, when I know I have a long haul of class work and homework ahead of me, I like to dress for confidence.
Q: What is the focus/favorite part of this outfit and why?
A: I love that this outfit meets my two style requirements while still managing to look pulled together. It’s simple really, … but I know that it’s not going to be fussy throughout. … That for me and the fact that the white on black is both classic and edgy, makes all the difference!
Julia showed some amazing school style. She proved that style can be appropriate and fun.
Edge readers, stay tuned for more! Staff members will be at your school looking for some great, school-appropriate style!
