Throughout this week, the Cut explores college life, from politics and identity to parties, sex, and style.
To kick off College Week, we sent local student photographers out to capture undergraduate street style on campuses across the country. First up is UCLA, where campus style is all about confidence in simplicity. Senior Angel Alvarado shot fellow students between classes embracing tried-and-true college classics, from jean jackets and crewneck sweaters to JanSports and flannel. Others spiced up normcore staples like black jeans and Keds with a bit of cheek, like a black-and-white cat T-shirt and a pro-vaping hat. Click through the slideshow for a look at UCLA’s students’ cool, comfortable style.
