We talked with five UNC students about how they're redefining fashion this spring
As the weather changes, students are trading in their Zoom sweats for new outfits.
We talked with five students who are choosing to wear clothes that not only are appropriate for the warmer spring days on the quad, but also make them feel confident in their own skin. Here's what they had to say about their spring fashion.
Advertising and public relations major Nicholas Fantauzzi believes that fashion is a way for expressing your confidence within.
Fantauzzi said he likes to wear furs and color-coordinate his accessories. He also gets his nails and eyebrows done as part of his spring fashion routine.
“I like to break down barriers of toxic masculinity by getting my nails and eyebrows done. To me, it’s stylish, it looks good and I’m taking care of myself,” he said.
Fantauzzi is from the Bronx and cites fellow New Yorkers A$AP Rocky and Dapper Dan, and musician Harry Styles as his fashion influences.
“I remember there was a big controversy over Styles wearing a dress,” Fantauzzi said. "But he didn’t care, he was just living his life. I feel the same, no matter what other people think, I’m comfortable with what I do, in my own skin and I’m going to keep on dressing and do it how I like.”
Sophomore archaeology and art history major Abigail Martin said her style has changed over quarantine.
“I feel like it’s given me the confidence to try new things,” Martin said. "Zoom has given me more control over how I’m perceived and I’ve been wearing colors I’ve never worn and new styles."
Martin came out as trans in the midst of COVID-19 and has refashioned her wardrobe.
“This period goes hand in hand with switching out my wardrobe and figuring out what works and what doesn’t,” she said.
