DSU is Fashion Forward

Cortney Slaight

Rather than another article about what’s hot and where to get it, I thought it would be fun to mix things up. There is plenty of fashion inspiration right here in Madison. I hunted down a few stylish dressers on campus to ask them a few questions. 1) What is your favorite store? 2) What is your favorite trend right now? 3) What is thee must-have item in your closet that you could not live without? These were there responses:
