Casual campus style at its finest.

Let’s Talk Fashion
Who or what inspires your style? “What inspires my style is the human race and how we progress. We build in the name of progression but we’re also destroying ourselves in the process. I love the ugly truth of reality. That’s what inspires me.”
Where do you like to shop? “Thrift stores. I buy every [single article of] clothing I have [from thrift stores.]”
How would you describe your sense of style? “External happiness.”
Why did you choose this particular outfit? “I just wanted to be comfortable. I just like being comfortable with myself. It’s not about the statement… you can really tell when somebody’s really comfortable with what they have on. And you can tell when it expresses who they are. When I see something I just know, ‘that’s mine, that’s for me.'”
What fashion advice would you give to other students looking to improve their style? “Don’t focus on the outcome of your outfit. Just focus on the process of choosing what makes you love and what you love and letting that create itself into, like, a whole style.”
What are your favorite fashion trends right now? “I love sandals and tank tops.”
Do you have any favorite fashion designers? If so, who? “Maison Martin Marigela. [I love the] diamond masks [that the Margiela] models wear.”
Do you have any unique hobbies or interests? “I love to walk. I love to just, like – I’ve always loved to walk barefoot. Not only on the gravel, but specifically like grass and dirt. And I found a book a year back, it’s called Earthing, [which is about] when you’re gathering energy from the earth through your feet. So I just love walking barefoot or setting my feet under the trunk of a tree. I love reading or drawing. But mainly my hobby is to expose the naked truth of the naked realness of human nature.”
If you could raid anyone’s closet, who would it be and why? “Probably… I don’t know if you’ve seen the movie Baby Driver that just came out but the lead girl in that – her character – had the best sense of fashion. So I would raid her closet.”
If you could raid anyone’s closet, who would it be and why? “I love vintage clothing. It doesn’t have to be anybody famous, I just want like somebody who was not only a political activist in the sixties but also true die-hard hippie. And I want to raid their closet.”
Elements of Kamron’s Outfit
1. Boho Beads
Hand-crafted beads are forever in, especially among the boho set. Most guys don’t accessorize much, but I love how Kamron perfectly paired his beads with the same color scheme to his outfit. Kudos to him!
2. Discolored Messenger Bag
Kamron’s discolored messenger bag adds so much charisma to his outfit. If you find one of your own at your favorite thrift store, pick up his trick of adding pins to it to showcase your own style.
3. Distressed Muscle Tee
Distressed muscle tees are a summer must-have! When the summer heat in New York is at an all-time high, anything that touches your skin makes you sweat. But with a muscle tee, the breeze hits all the right spots for the ultimate cool-down.
4. Striped Socks
One of the most important rules of the boho lifestyle is being comfortable. Sticking to his eclectic but neutral color palette, Kamron paired these comfortable Nike sneakers with striped socks for excellent style.
