On the campus of Tuskegee University struts Diamond Ceré Woods, a political science major hailing from Birmingham, Alabama. Woods rocks a style that’s classy yet edgy. She loves adding a bold accessory to simple looks. In fashion Woods lives by “less is more” but is the total opposite when serving her University and community. Founder of non-profit Palm2Palm, Woods operates the organization to bring a sense of togetherness through community service in various areas of Alabama. Brains and beauty for sure! She is a Tuskegee University Ambassador and is a part of the Tuskegee University Honors Program.
DiamondCere.com is a fashion and lifestyle blog that was recently launched by Woods. The page displays personal style as well as other sophisticated fashion forward women. When it comes to the Do’s and Don’ts of fashion Woods has a few tips. Do add contrast to every look. This is accomplished by adding a statement piece that can consist of either jewelry, handbags, or hats. Do have splashes of boldness. Bold accessories add flavor to simple looks. “There are no rules or requirements to her fashion designs. If she likes the final look, it’s a GO; regardless of what anyone says,” stated her mother, Ruby Davis.
Tight fitting clothing is a don’t for Woods. She thinks that it is imperative to always dress for your body type. “I am very slim so I try to avoid wearing tight fitted clothing and lean towards more loose fitted or flare styles; but not too loose that result in the loss of detail of the piece,” stated Woods. College girls can be very fly while managing class, work, and extracurricular activities. Woods makes that a fact and not opinion. “She has created an aesthetic of using earth tones to create different looks. These looks transcend the average look & style of any other college girl,” stated Tiawndrea Ware.
When HBCU Buzz caught up with Diamond at Tuskegee’s Homecoming she most definitely stood out in the crowd and we are not the only ones who noticed. “I love how she thinks outside of the box and pieces things together that you wouldn’t initially think complement each other,” stated Austen Howell.
