Tis the season for new shades!
By Jody Marich
A communication major, Ethan Reynolds, loves his clothes. From polos to jeans, totes to shoes, this boy knows style.
The bubbly sophomore invited me into his AMAZING closet. These are a few things I learned about him.
After taking a tour of his fashion, I was fortunate enough to interview the 20 year old.
Jody Marich: What inspires you when you dress?
Ethan Reynolds: “My clothing choice is inspired by a variety of things; my mood, celebrities, the occasion, the weather, etcetera.”
(some of Ethan's favorite pieces)
JM: Where do you get your fashion sense from?
ER: “I would say that my mother is really the woman who showed me what fashion is, what it means, and how to pertain it to my wardrobe.”
JM: Who is your fashion icon?
ER: “I have a variety of fashionable inspirations such as my mother and Rihanna, however, I do not have a fashion icon per say.”
JM: How would you describe your style?
ER: “I would describe my style as casually sophisticated.”
JM: Where do you like to shop?
ER: “I really enjoy being a sale scavenger so I enjoy shopping department store outlets like, Last Call and Nordstrom Rack, and eBay.”
JM: What is your fashion accessory you can't live without?
ER: “Just out of practicality, I probably couldn't live without my Cole Haan driving loafers or Burberry cashmere scarf but I really enjoy my Louis Vuitton Neverfull Damier MM tote.”
As you can see, Reynolds

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
I'm not a shopaholic, I'm a collector
