Jon Ogata, junior political science and history double major
The Aggie: What are you wearing?
Ogata: “Clark’s desert boots from Nordstrom, wool Vince pants and a Hugo Boss shirt. The tie is Penguin. The cardigan and jacket are both Banana Republic. And the watch is Michael Kors.”
How did you decide what to wear today?
“I just kind of look in my closet and see what pieces look good together. I’m a stylist at Michael Kors so I’ve gotten pretty good at pairing things that look decent.”
Where do you find inspiration?
“My inspiration comes from anything. Part of my job is to keep up on trends. I’ve always dressed nicely — I wore ties in high school. I think people vastly underdress; I don’t think there needs to be an occasion to dress nicely.”
What’s your advice for staying chic during the winter?
“For winter, layering is fantastic. People need to step out of their confined boxes — become adventurous, become a little braver and put something nice on!”
