Sidewalk Style: The Belt Way

For this week’s Sidewalk Style, we stopped Howard University freshman Marsha Leo to check out her belted jacket and bright jeans. Read on to see more photos—and to take a poll on what you think of her style choices.

Marsha Leo, 19
Freshman, Howard University

What she’s wearing: Nine West boots; Forever 21 jeans; belt, cuff bracelet, bag, and jacket from Burlington Coat Factory.

Describe your style:
“Casually cute.”

Favorite stores?
“DSW for shoes and Forever 21. You can’t go wrong.”

Tell me about style at Howard.
“It’s very diverse. Everyone has his or her own style, so you don’t really feel a need to be like anyone else. People like to carve out their own look.”

What styles are popular at Howard at the moment?
“Scarves. Fall means a lot of gray and black, so everyone’s wearing scarves in bright colors to accessorize. Boots with fitted jeans are big, and colorful tights are popular, too.”


What do you think of Michelle Obama’s style?
“She’s classic and conservative but very fresh. I think it’ll change the way people dress—they’ll be a little less stuffy and formal.”

Rachel says:
Marsha is wearing a key trend for fall and winter that also happens to be very wearable: belted outerwear. The stretchy style of her belt is great for this, because it breaks up the line of the belt while accommodating even the bulkiest of coats or jackets.
