Looks on Campus: Hui - University of Washington

Publish date:

Between interning at Community Lunch on Capitol Hill in Seattle and taking ballet classes, I’m almost always in a rush. Through the chaos though, I always notice the unique fashion of my fellow Seattleites. It was on one of these busy days that I was fortunate enough to spot the stylish Hui.

I was waiting for my bus home when I decided to take pictures around the University of Washington campus. That's when I saw Hui and her wonderfully put-together outfit. Not only was her outfit a delight, but she was an absolute peach!

Elements of Hui's Outfit

1. Bold Maxi Dress

Hui's dress is not your average spaghetti strap maxi! The unique cut and ruffled top make it incredibly flattering, and gives the dress a wonderful texture. And of course, that gorgeous blue hue is so bold and eye-catching. This maxi dress is perfect for summer, and can work for day or night.

2. Mismatched Earrings

Hui's earrings really made her outfit stand out. While they weren't matching studs, both earrings looked chic and complemented each other wonderfully. Wearing mismatched earrings is a hot trend at the moment, and Hui shows us a classy way to rock this look.

3. Attention-Grabbing Purse

How unique is this embroidered handbag?! Hui's purse is a bold take on a very classic shape, and contrasted well with her dress without overwhelming it. The size of this bag is ideal for toting around all the essentials needed for a day spent on campus, which makes it a fun and practical choice.
