Never underestimate the power of properly fitted clothes.
Chase Body’s preppy chic, tailored look was a welcome sight among a sea of (mostly) gym shorts, T-shirts and jeans on Concordia College’s campus in Moorhead.
The sophomore art and business major grew up in California and has been in the Midwest almost four years.
Describe your style. Some people call me hipster because of the art major, but my style is always slim everything. I like oxford shirts – I love shirts with collars. Touches of leather are good too.
What are you wearing? My pants and boat shoes are from H&M, my backpack is Herschel from Urban Outfitters, the leather belt and polo shirt are from Gap, and my watch is Timex from Nordstrom. I saw it on a blog, and it was sold out everywhere.
Where do you shop in the Fargo-Moorhead area? Forever 21 and Gap. Outside of Fargo-Moorhead, I like Urban Outfitters and H&M.
Do you prefer neckties or bowties? I haven’t broken out the ties yet, but soon I will. I have three bowties and two skinny ties. Right now, I prefer bowties.
What are the worst fashion offenses you see in Fargo-Moorhead? Flip-flops, sweatpants and sweatpants tucked into UGGs.
Do you have any advice for dressing fall-appropriate? Dark colors with a splash of bright look great for fall. Leather accents are good. I have orange pants I’m hoping to wear soon.
