Who's Hot: Campus Students With Swagger

Rodney James: Majoring in Marketing, Rodney James is a proud student of Michigan State University. He is a pretty fly guy who has great style! If you see Rodney going to class, he is definitely one of the flyest dudes in the room. For some reason though, he thinks his style is bummy while on campus, but in everyone else's mind, he is constantly fresh. (I guess he is just THAT FLY! lol) So take a look at an interview I did with Rod, and see what he has to say about style:

THE HEIRESS: Describe your style.

RODNEY: My style is timeless...its never trendy, I dont follow trends....you could take a picture of me from 03 or 04 when I was 13 and 14 and look at it now, and fashion wise I look the same, only more mature. Most of the stuff I wear is exclusive, I dont shop at the mall only small boutiques. (---Disclaimer: Most of the designers I wear people cant pronounce the names so dont hurt yourself when trying : )--)

THE HEIRESS: Who is your style icon?

RODNEY: My style icon is KanYe, and only for one reason. He is not afraid to step outside of societal norms and do something. (Note I did said "do" something as opposed to saying "wear" something bc ure style is not defined by just what clothes you have on"). Before Kanye it was not socially acceptable to dress how I dress because no one else was doing it in the mainstream, now that Ye made it mainstream he made it ok for guys like me to wear jeans and limited edition shirts that fit and wear sneakers besides Air Force Ones.

THE HEIRESS: What advice would you give others that are trying to define their style?

RODNEY: To those of you trying to define your style....do what is practical. If its dead winter and snowing throw on some boots and keep the sneakers in the closet. Also wear clothes that are flattering to your body type...if ure skinny dont wear baggy jeans and a tall tee that goes down to your knees...Be you, and be comfortable (ie girls we can tell that you are struggling when u are walking in heels it pains us to watch you walk in them...either walk around the house in heels and learn how to walk in them or stick to flats and sneakers...thanks).

THE HEIRESS: Do you think style is important for college students?

RODNEY: Style is not that important as a college student, everytime I go to class, im not dressed as I would be if I was stepping out of the house during summer. I only brought very few clothes/shoes up to school, dressing nicely at school was the last thing on my mind. I am here to go to school and not to stunt on everybody when in go to class. College kids should save their money for other things besides spending it on clothes. Most colleges kids including me are broke anyway.

THE HEIRESS: What look or style do you like best for girls?

RODNEY: Honestly...girls look best in sweats and a hoodie or T shirt with no make up. This is when you can get a good idea of wat kind of girl she is...I hate it when girls always feel the need to be dressed up...be comfortable with yourselves and throw on those sweats from time to time. But if ure going out...girls with sneakers have a special place in my heart...its getting to the point where I almost done like girls in heels anymore.(Because everygirl just wears heels all the time now!...be different!)

THE HEIRESS: When you meet the opposite sex, what is the first thing you notice?

RODNEY: The first thing I notice in girls is their hair ,then the amount of make up they have on, then wat shoes they have on, and then everything else. 

(Note 1. : if you have a Coach bag...uhm I immediately think, "ok so this girl knows nothing about leather goods, but decided to run out and get a tacky coach bag with a bunch of Cs on it just to fit in with the crowd when you shouldve waited and saved up for a nice Louis bag.)

(Note 2:...if you have a fake Louis, Gucci, basically any fake anything...I have ZERO respect for your fashion sense...nada...none...zip...
zero...save up and buy the real thing dont rush to be some garbage that looks like trash...and you really thought you could pass that off as real...people like you give me and my friends stuff to talk about thanks for that!)

THE HEIRESS: What does it take for a guy to have swagger?

RODNEY: It takes a strong mentality to have "swag", and thats it...the clothes dont make the man...the man makes the clothes if people can tell you look uncomfortable in wat you have on, then no one will like it. Just be you and blaze your own trail. I dont even read GQ or Esquire or Complex or any of that stuff...im not up on the latest trend and honestly I could care less wat the next guy has on. All I know is that I will contine rockin my dry japanese denim and limited sneakers till I die no matter what the blogs or the magazine says. 

 This high fashion stuff is not for everyone so if think my interview was to raw for you, then you weren't ready for this fashion scene you are trying to break into. (Note how I didnt drop any designers or Brands I wear...I dont want just anyone wearing what I wear...if you can recognize what it is by lookin at it then you are a CHAMPION, and we would prolly be good friends...if not im urging you to TRY and catch up!
