The voice of the students...
From her hair to her boots, Letang keeps it simple and alive. There is no theme to her look, but Letang still manages to impress people with her style. “Im not into labels", Letang said, and she admits to going through lots of clothes in the morning.
One of Letang's biggest goals when it comes to her style is keeping it comfortable. Today, many of our most fashionable students strive to be as comfortable as can be everyday. Even though labels in fashion magazines are perceived as being essential to everyone’s wardrobe, students like Letang are finding ways to beat that trend pressure. Sometimes keeping it very simple is what catches the attention of most people. Spontaneous self- styling seems to be in style for this fall.
Even though Rachelle does not have any particular favorite designers, her favorite places to shop for clothes include H&M, Forever 21, Necessary Clothing, Top Shop, thrift shops, and Urban Outfitters. For many students these retailers are more suited to college student’s budget, and are also great for keeping up with high fashion looks. Designer collaborations in popular stores like H&M have included high- end designs from Roberto Cavalli and Versace; allowing fine clothing to accessible to the masses.
Letang does not like to blending in and loves finding a unique buy at thrift stores, not to mention the benefit of being a cost conscious fashionista.
With the onset of adolescence, society emphasizes it as phase where you must 'find yourself'. The preteen/teenage stage is seen as the area of great transitional phase for everyone. This is where we start composing a definition for ourselves. At this point criticism is at its highest and you may take from it what you will. Discussing this, Letang reveals that her experiences in life have molded her in to the fabulous, strong and opinionated woman she is today.
She believes that most of her style developed not only through influence from her older sibling, but also through trial and error. Growing up she really latched on to the trends and style her sister kept up with and made an attempt to evolve her future style from that point.
Reflecting on her past, Letang has come to an understanding that some people may not like the way she dresses, but she sees it as an esteem booster. Sometimes even her parents don’t agree with what she wears, however over time they have adjusted (even though they continue to comment). She continues to march to the beat of her own style drum. She continues to share her great style sense and uniqueness with the St. Francis community.
Rachelle has great hopes for her future after life at St. Francis,“I aspire to be a top Marketing executive for a really good nonprofit/ restaurant owner/ amazing wife-mother”, she said. One thing she wants everyone to understand is that the clothes do not define the person, they are is simply an “accessory [to] your personality.”
