Fashion Forward Students Start @Wildcatwears


Although there is a dress code to follow at Williston, students manage to embody their identities through the outfits they put together. Especially after a year of Covid and its restrictions, students have been longing to try new styles and expand the versatility of their outfits.
Adeline Hume, a senior applying to colleges for fashion management, feels her style has evolved throughout her time at Williston.
“I think my style has definitely changed a lot over the course of the time I’ve been at high school,” Adeline said. “Right now, I would just describe my style as being different everyday. For the most part, I think it’s pretty casual and laid back.”
Adeline specified which clothing pieces and accessories she enjoys wearing on a daily basis.
“I love a nice statement boot. A lot of people at school have probably seen me wearing different white boots. I have two pairs of white boots that I wear all the time. I also love jeans too,” she said.
Sarah Drucker, a senior from Great Barrington, Mass., also reflected on her style and fashion favorites.
“My style, I would say, is a good mix of thrifted pieces and stuff I’ve bought in person. I would say it’s muted-tired if I had to describe it in a few words,” she said.
Sarah’s favorite thrift stores include Goodwill, Salvation Army, and a few in her hometown, including one called Catwalk.
Recently, Sarah and a few other Williston students created an Instagram account to showcase different outfits at Williston.
“I think everyone should go follow @wildcatwears, where we’re documenting the best upcoming style at Williston,” she said. “I think some people nailed it on the head and are not getting appreciated enough for it.”
Not only does @wildcatwears highlight eye-catching outfits produced by students, but it is also an opportunity for those interested in fashion to interact on a social media platform most students use. Inspired by other fashion based accounts such as @parisiensinparis and @humansofny on Instagram, @wildcatwears has been grabbing the attention of many Williston students.
Recent posts on @wildcatwears showcase outfits by students such as Dore Adeosun, a junior with a great interest in fashion and founder of her own jewelry brand, “inam x iman jewelry,” who put together an outfit that incorporates both the grunge and preppy look. She combined a yellow lace skirt and pearl necklace with silver chains and chunky black boots.
Dore and Adeline are also in the process of founding a fashion club for Williston, where students with an interest in fashion will get an opportunity to gather together and participate in fashion related events held on campus.
