Our stylish staffers are taking a look back to their college years to share their fashion ups and downs, must-have picks, and hard-earned advice. This week we talked to handbag buyer Aroom.
Name: Aroom Han
School: Boston College, Class of ’04
SHOPBOP: During your college years, did you ever try any trends or styles that, looking back, weren’t so great?
AROOM HAN: I love overalls, but people just didn’t understand them back in the early 2000s.
SB: What were some looks you loved, even now?
AH: Overalls! They’re finally back and finally cool.
SB: It’s back-to-school time. What are your top must-haves for fall?
AH: Obviously, I’m going to say overalls! I’m currently obsessed with a pair from Blank Denim. They have a slim fit, which keeps the silhouette modern. Also musts: an oversized white tee, statement Superga sneakers—fun and comfortable—and a chic baseball hat for pesky bad hair days. Finally, you need a classic messenger bag. Cambridge Satchel has both neutral and bold options in the perfect, structured shape.
SB: What is your style advice to those who are in school now?
AH: Comfort is key. Sweatshirts, sneakers, and overalls are in style, rock them hard and never let a hater make you think otherwise.
