Western ‘fits: Anna Schneider

Every Thursday, a Western Front reporter will bring you their fashion opinions, give fashion tips or highlight what Western students are wearing.

By Zoe Buchli

Name: Anna Schneider
Pronouns: She/her/hers
Year: Senior
Major: Design

Is there anything or anyone who inspires your personal style?
A lot of other designers and illustrators, like on Instagram, where there’s a lot of creative people. Artsy people.

What are your favorite places to shop?
It’s usually a lot of thrift stores, stuff like Buffalo Exchange. I’m really open to going anywhere and spending as little as possible. I’ll look at sale racks for hours to find jeans that cost $7 and are amazing.

Do you prefer in-store or online shopping?
I think that I might actually prefer online so then I can think of all the things I own, that’s a priority for me.

How do you think your style represents the Western community’s style as a whole?
I definitely fit in best with the other design & art students. But I do think Western as a whole loves to be comfy – some people wear leggings and sweatshirts, others wear big sweaters and mom jeans.

What do you think is the importance of personal style is?
For me it’s two things: preparing to face the world and finding items that make you happy. Heading out for a long day of work and class and meetings is easier if I know I’ll look cute and ‘profesh’ doing it, but I’m also a sucker for a dress with pockets.
