Paris Fashion Week is well underway, but you don’t have to hit the streets of France to find out what’s in vogue. Take a walk through UC Berkeley and you’ll find a wealth of styles that are trendy yet distinctive — the Normcore cool kids, the indie prep, the girl in all-black, and more. If you’re tired of Parisian street style, take a look at these seven well-dressed students straight from our very own campus.
Inspiration for the Day: “I was actually sick. I needed my turtleneck.”
