5 Terp Fashion Trends: The Bold, the Brave and the Beautiful

 

As colder weather slowly but surely approaches, we can’t help but notice that along with the autumn leaves, campus style is changing as well. Whether they’re decked in a suit and tie, or slumming in their sweats, our Terps sure know what to say about who they are without muttering a word. Here, The Black Sheep presents you with the inner workings of our favorite UMD style icons, because forget a picture, it’s your outfit that really says 1,000 words.

 

5.) The Style Star:

Where they’re going:
Just to class. Maybe out to Blaze Pizza later.

 

What they’re thinking:
“I don’t care if I have nowhere important to be today. I’ve been listening to Beyoncé for the last five hours. I deserve to feel special, so bow down peasants.”

 

Favorite snack:
Anything drinkable from a straw. She spent 10 minutes lining that red lip and she’s not going to mess it all up just for a North Campus Diner gyro. 

 

Favorite pastime:
Roaming beauty channels on YouTube and spending half their paychecks on Anastasia Brow Gel and contour palettes.  

 

Conclusion:
Terps who smell AH-MAZING when they walk past you on the street. 

 

4.) The Career Man (And Woman…#Feminism):

 

unnamed (3)

 

Where they’re going:
Either a career fair described as “business casual,” which really means putting on a 6-piece suit and liking it, or a life-changing internship they’re scared to death of getting fired from.

 

What they’re thinking:
“Don’t freak out. Don’t freak out. Don’t freak out! If this doesn’t work out, that’s fine. I’ll just start bulking up. That way I can become an Instagram hoe and then forty-something-year-old creeps will pay my bills and take me on vacations to Milan. *Inhales last of 5-Hour Energy* Alright, let’s do this!” 

 

Favorite snack:
Currently living off a diet of Monday Motivation tweets and Adderall.

 

Favorite pastime:
Easing their anxiety with a late-night carton of Ben & Jerry’s and Hey Arnold! after waking from their bi-weekly 2 a.m. panic attack.

 

Conclusion: Future Mid-Atlantic Governors

 

3.) The “Hot” Tamale:

 

hot

 

Where they’re going:
Not to get a jacket, that’s for sure.

 

What they’re thinking:
“Autumn?! Winter?! LALALALALALA! I can’t hear you!!!”

 

Favorite snack:
Potato salad, coleslaw, watermelon and any other side primarily served at summer barbeques.

 

Favorite pastime:
Taking evening jogs down Regents Drive…shirtless… and in short shorts.

 

Conclusion:
Future contestants on Naked and Afraid.  

 

2.) The Mascot:

 

unnamed (1)

 

Where they’re going:
Absolutely nowhere. Don’t you see? Maryland is better than Disney World, Whole Foods and Ryan Gosling’s bedroom combined. 

 

What they’re thinking:
“Let’s gooooooooooo Maryland (clap clap)! Let’s gooooooooooo Maryland (clap clap)!”

 

Favorite snack:
Anything smothered in Old Bay seasoning, preferably from a parking lot tailgate. 

 

Favorite pastime:
Singing Maryland’s alma mater in the shower every morning and defending our football team. 

 

Conclusion:
Ride-or-Dies

 

1.) The Basic Bitch:

Where they’re going:
To sleep after this quick study session. And by “quick study session,” we mean five minutes of studying and two hours of American Horror Story: Freak Show.

 

What they’re thinking:
“Giraffe-printed harem pants go with everything, right? Ugh, nevermind. I give zero fucks.”

 

Favorite snack:
McDonalds’ chicken nuggets with a medium fry and a large coke.  

 

Favorite pastime:
Scrolling through pretty people, perfect bodies, intellectuals and vegan living on Instagram, and then creating seasonal resolutions you’ll never commit to.

 

Conclusion:
This is everybody else.
