HBCUs are some of the most stylish campuses in the world. Howard University, specifically, is a campus where some students will “pop out” just because. Overall, the goal for many students is to simply showcase their personality through what they wear on a daily basis.

Check out this week’s Stylish Buzz Danielle Young:

Danielle Young is a senior, Supply Chain Management major from Detroit. She can be seen on campus in anything from a metallic two-piece to a chill, off the shoulder number.

“style is a form of self-expression that lets people tell who they are and how they’re feeling.”

Aside from being a full-time student, Danielle is also a part time stylist. She plans to build a career in the retail industry (whether that be through styling, communications, sales, or something else). She has also been awarded some amazing opportunities like studying the African textile industry in Ghana and even working with DC Fashion Week among various other organizations, brands, and companies.

“Through experiences, I’ve had within the fashion industry I’ve learned that there is a big difference between fashion and your own personal style. While fashion tends to be based on trends, style is a form of self-expression that lets people tell who they are and how they’re feeling.

You don’t have to rock designer labels or follow the latest trends just to be stylish. Each outfit that I put together has to be formed around a signature piece that brings it to life. I like clothes that are bold, eccentric, daring, and unique because that’s who I am as a person. I do my best to make sure that I never buy anything that’s similar to something I already own. “
