Fashion Spotlight: Joel Perez ’16

Rachel Eisen

Joel is a potential economics concentrator from New York City.

How would you describe your style?

Preppy with an NYC spin to it. Slim is also the way to go.

Where do you get your inspiration?

I look to the young professional crowd for inspiration, as well as to some of my peers. These are people who dress a bit more professionally and are well put together, but also are creative and are able to look interesting. They’re not just following trends, but expanding and developing on them.

How would you say your style fits in with the Colgate community?

I fit in because of the preppy side of my style but the NYC side of it sets me apart.

How has your style changed since you came to Colgate?

I’ve definitely added a little more prep to it.

What would you say is your seasonal statement at the moment?

As one of my friends put it, “sweaters with seemingly useless buttons in weird places.” Name a couple of your favorite bands. I prefer DJs to bands. Afrojack, Axwell and John Dahlback are my top three.
