GQ named Pittsburgh the third "worst dressed city in America" in 2011. In the 10 years that have passed since This article reached the net, this City has undergone many changes. Armed with an iPhone and no plans, my freshman Sophia Chen and I set out to investigate the veracity of this claim over the past week.
When I asked my close friend Sophia Chen, a psychologist, how she felt about the style choices made by Pitt's student population during the week, Sophia was proud of her fellow Panthers.
"It was really good to see people express themselves in different ways," Chen said.
Read on to see what Pitt's best-dressed students were wearing this week, hear our thoughts, and decide for yourself how modern our campus is.
Anna Bella, first-year architecture student
Sophia: this aspect is really linked to monochromaticism. This look was clearly thought of putting together this look and the distinctive character of the patchwork pants sets it apart from the rest.
Colin – This setting follows the line of monochrome, and I eat that. The sweater is what initially attracted us, and the rest of the outfit was carried too. The orange necklace is a pretty fall-themed pop of color to tie it all together.
Dan Uhranowsky, graduate in higher health informatics
Sophia: I love the laid-back feel of this look, it's casual but still modern, especially with hemmed jeans. Also, accessorizing with the hat only adds the cherry on top.
Colin – This is a great look. Trucker caps are super on trend right now, which I see as kind of a convergence of the 2000 revival and the growing popularity of workwear. The gingham print lining of the red corduroy jacket is a fantastic accent piece in this outfit.
Stella Han, first-year student in psychology
Sophia – This is one of my favorite looks so far. Layers are great – adding the pop of blue under the leather jacket really does it. I have also seen the return of leg warmers and I absolutely love them in this outfit.
Colin – This set is very well built. When I think of dressing up during the week at its peak, this is the kind of outfit that comes to mind. I admit I'm a fan of a good green and brown color scheme, but this is a great outfit regardless.
