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.

“My greatest influence when it comes to style is hip-hop culture.

Here are some of Troy’s Keys to creating a look:

“My style varies but it is always consistent when it comes to the color waves. I have always been an artist for as long as I could remember and that makes me think deeper into what would look good and what I put on for that day.

My greatest influence when it comes to style is hip-hop culture, because in my mind music is a form of art and needs visual representation to take it that much further. The most important aspect of style to me is the details; the specifics are what make a look, a look. When I was young, I used to look up to Kanye West for his sense of diversity when it came to what he wore, I’m referring to old Kanye; pink polo and a backpack Kanye.”
