Trinity trends yay or not?

Despite the sweltering San Antonio heat, many Trinity students still manage to attend and be present every day, showing off fashionable clothes and trendy accessories. Of these trends, we’ve seen many fast fashions come and go recently, from skateboards to scooters.

In honor of our fashion issue this week, Trinitonians sat down with some stylish students in the Coates Student Center to ask their style icons and their thoughts on current Trinity trends.

Jacob Iverson, Junior Communication and Art Double Major (Claire Sammons);

Who is your celebrity style icon/inspiration?
“I don’t think I have anything. But whoever is reading this, look at the way Adam Sandler dresses because it’s amazing. And I think people should be less restrictive… Fashion is freedom, bro. Dress as you please. … in terms of [my] Fashion inspiration — the beauty of the game EarthBound, an SNS game, like 1994. The whole game is bop, everything about it, the design, is beautiful.

Are there any particular trends you’ve seen that you absolutely love or hate?
“Actually, I’d say Mullet’s return is a bit of fun. This is not necessarily a wearable fashion. I don’t know if it’s right or wrong, but at some point it’s really fun to wear something, like the beauty of your hair and how you fit into the trend? …In terms of trends, I feel like your fashion sense and what you wear is an extension of who you are as a person, so whether you participate in fashion trends or not, people should just wear what they want because it’s part of who they are,” he said.

Frida Marquez, sophomore neuroscience major (Claire Sammons);

Who is your celebrity style icon/inspiration?
“I really like the way Billie Eilish dresses. It’s so flowy and just shows who she is, and I really like the colors she uses.”

We used to have a guy named Adam Sandler and I’ve seen them compared in the media. What do you think about this?
“I think this is good. I like the dress [and] I’ve heard he dresses very modestly because he’s a celebrity and I love the way he expresses himself. I feel like it’s a great way to show the world that it’s important to be humble and show who you are, even if you’re famous, you have to show who you really are.”

Are there any particular trends you’ve seen that you absolutely love or hate?
“I really like tennis dresses now, especially the white ones, but I want to have one in every color to fit and go with everything. And I love the way they look on people and it’s so fluid and comfortable, and I think they’re so cute.”

Abby Bell, First Year, Undecided (Claire Sammons)

Who is your celebrity style icon?
“Of course I don’t [have anyone] … My motivation is that I have a lot of dirty laundry right now, and this [outfit] It was clean.”

Are there any particular trends you’ve seen that you absolutely love or hate?
“I’m a big fan of long dresses coming back into fashion, because I think they’re so comfortable and they protect you from the sun, so they’re eco-friendly. And, I think that ‘modest’ trend coming back into fashion is great to have here in San Antonio.

Andrew Crossley, Junior Business Analytics and Technology and Finance Double-Major (Claire Sammons)

Who is your celebrity style icon?
“I love DJ James Hype. [and] Snowboarder Nijah Houston.

Do you think that’s a cool trend or are you just, like, too comfortable?
“It’s very comfortable, and I love skating. I’ve been skating for five or six years.”

Nathan Daniel Cazares, first-year neuroscience major (Claire Sammons);

Who is your celebrity style icon?
“There’s this one particular artist, he’s a hip-hop, R&B artist. His name is Saba and he wears all these crazy beanies like elaborate hats and things and they’re all his own design, and [it’s] But it’s not all for nothing.”

Are there any particular trends you’ve seen that you absolutely love or hate?
“I see a lot of people, shorts and long sleeves, or sweaters, and I’m just… I’m digging it but it’s like, sometimes it throws me off and you’re not covered up like you are. Legs too. If you’re cold, you know you’re cold. But in general, I think everyone, you know, their own sense of fashion is culturally developed. So whatever you’re wearing, I’m not going to judge because, you know, sometimes I wear something funny and, you know, [others] He might not like it.”

Wally Guo, first-year intended chemistry major (Claire Sammons);

Who is your celebrity style icon?
“[I don’t really have one], I kind of just wear what looks good, I think. I definitely think some of my style is probably inspired by some of my friends back home.

Are there any particular trends you’ve seen that you absolutely love or hate?
“Personally, I don’t really follow trends. [but] I love seeing people wearing Doc Martens, they’re so cool. I think there are two pairs with me. … But yeah, you know, people wear things, they look cool.
