This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at UCLA chapter.

We’re at UCLA, just minutes away from Beverly Hills and global superstars. This is quite literally one of the world’s fashion hot spots, so when I walk down Bruinwalk every day it feels like I’m at fashion week (even our Bruin Bear is sporting a little silver duct tape moment right now too)!

One of my favorite things I look forward to every day is admiring the creativity and diversity of the fashion that makes our campus extra special.

If you’re a friend of mine or even an acquaintance, you likely know that my sense of style is very important to me. However, this week I decided to take matters out of my own hands. This week, I tried seven of our trendiest aesthetics from some of the most stylish students (and some of my favorite people whom I am EXTREMELY grateful for, and this article would not be possible without this incredible group).

background breakdown: what’s my style?

I would describe my style in three words: “pastel cottagecore girly.” My favorite sources of fashion inspiration include Pinterest and YouTube. Specifically, my favorite sources of style inspiration are Peyton Elizabeth Lee, Sabrina Carpenter, Jenelle Eliana, Alexis Mueller, Kate Li and AlexaSunshine83 (whom I met 4 years ago while thrifting and is the nicest influencer ever)! My color palette is PRIMARILY PINK, but I love to incorporate white and other pastel colors too. I enjoy accessorizing with jewelry, but I exclusively wear rose gold jewelry. I NEVER wear any other metal color.

Day 1: edgy grunge

For day one, we’re starting off strong with one of my best friends, Madison (who actually came up with this article idea, so thank youuuu)!

Let’s

The art of expressing oneself knows no limits, be it through words, images, art or even the Spotify playlist you made for that one individual in your coaching centre. With the onset of keeping up with all things trendy, one of the most common forms of expressing oneself is through what you wear. Sneakers have been a fashion statement for eons due to their varying shapes, colourways and the way they can perfectly complete an outfit and one’s style of clothing. For artists, sneakerheads and fashionista’s alike, personalised sneakers are the ultimate fashion statement; a wearable that not only keeps your feet dry in Bashundhara when it rains, but is also an extension of one’s personality or identity.

Labiba Ibnath Alam and her page, ‘Labaebaa Painting on Random Stuff,’ caters to those who see sneakers as an extension of themselves. She had started off painting on canvases, however, she had always wanted to paint on sneakers. Her vision of using sneakers as a means of expressing her artistic abilities came to fruition in 2021 when she painted her first pair of all-white Nike Air Force 1’s, after sourcing the appropriate paints in 2020. Thus, a niche in the fashion market in Bangladesh was filled and her sneaker-customisation journey began. Finally, an individual who had the means and ability to make someone’s sneaker their own, and the crowd loved it. Demand for her customised sneakers knew no bounds, ranging from simple colour-blocks to complex characters from games and anime, and even complicated rickshaw art.
