Caught on Campus with Steph Jacobs

“Smoking” flats and leather-sleeved jackets are tearing up ’Cuse’s sidewalks this spring. Senior Steph Jacobs was caught sporting both trends in a perfectly casual yet put-together manner.

Taking inspiration from flawless street style veterans Olivia Palermo and Miranda Kerr, Jacobs isn’t afraid to make a statement, and describes her style as classic and feminine, with a bit of edge.

“I do love a skull print now and again,” Jacobs says.

Jacobs forgoes the skulls in this particular ensemble, but makes a bold statement with her cheetah printed, smoking slipper inspired flats.

“I’m obsessed with them because they feel fresher and nicer than ballet flats right now, and they’re super comfy,” Jacobs said.


Make this look your own with a perforated pair, perfect to air out your too-long-enclosed-in-boots feet like these metallic Aquazzura flats from SHOPBOP or this studded pair by BP at Nordstrom.

Jacobs adds an additional element of chic to her ensemble with her leather-sleeved zip-up sweatshirt. The leather accents effortlessly turn comfy into cool.­

“I love the leather trend! I think it makes an outfit a just a little cooler,” Jacobs said.

If you aren’t already rocking this edgy look, make it a low-cost reality with this faux-leather sleeved jean jacket from TOBI. It will be a staple in your spring wardrobe, without a doubt.
