Strutting your stuff around campus: Cerritos College’s Back to School style

Starting out the new school year, many of the Cerritos College’s more fashionable students have found it affordable to stay in style.

Some of the biggest trends this fall include a variety of prints, leather, and a return of punk and 90’s grunge inspired looks.

You might think these trends may be hard to follow because of the high price of in-trend clothing, but there are students who pull off their individual style effortlessly.

Cerritos College student Millie Dover found her entire punk rock inspired outfit at no cost whatsoever.

Dover was given her leather boots by her sister and just found her leather jacket and denim shorts.

With inspiration drawn from the likes of Tupac Shakur and Joan Jett, Dover put together a fashionable outfit without paying a single cent.

Liberal Arts major Kimberly Pachecano demonstrates the printed fabric trend with a semi-sheer floral top she got at a high end recycle store for $8.50.

Pachecano also added a touch of grunge to her outfit with her $35 studded boots from Wild Diva and her $13 Levi’s shorts.

Pachecano said she tries to shop anywhere that’s not too expensive.

“I do (purchase) a lot of Forever 21, H&M;, and a lot of those thrift stores that are a little more high end,” Pachecano said.

Cerritos College student Crystal Cercedes also exhibits the print trend with a floral dress she found at a thrift store.

Adding a brown belt she also found at a thrift store, Cercedes adds some spice to her outfit.

If you have a little extra cash on hand, product development major Holly Redden showcases some pricier styles.

Her shoes are $20 from Target and her American Apparel top and pants cost $40 and $80 respectively.

For all the guys out there, don’t think fashion is just for girls or that it takes too much effort. A comfortable yet stylish outfit can be effortlessly put together.

Art history major Rudy Huddleston’s tweed sweater, black pants, and burgundy boots together form a perfect back to school look that can easily be emulated.

Huddleston got his entire outfit and much of his wardrobe from various thrift stores, but says he also likes to shop at American Apparel and H&M.

Hey, I'm Daniel! I'm a journalism major and this is my first semester here at Talon Marks. I aspire to work in the entertainment industry, hopefully as an E! News correspondent. In my spare time I like to shop, blog, and watch terrible movies on Netflix. I also love spending my time at Disneyland. I hope this experience helps me grow as a journalist.

Fall 2014 Hi, I am Abraham David Dayfallah, staff writer for Talon Marks Fall 2014. I am a photography major with emphasis on landscape photography. I have always been an artist whether it be a shot i took with my camera or a drawing i freehand drew. I have an "Artists eye." Journalism has become a recent hidden talent of mine. I found my self writing all the details down on my notebook even though it was just an Auto 100 class. Deep down I always knew i was a journalist. I like to go hiking, work out at 24 hour fitness, take photographs, and play my playstation 4. I am into many hit television shows that are airing right now that I will often do podcasts on throughout this semester. This marks my second semester as a talon marks staff writer and I'm stoked to see where this semester takes us.
