When thinking about what to wear and what to buy, do you just buy the cheapest clothes or buy things because you need them? Or do you take pride in what you wear and put a lot of thought into it?

A lot of people are different, but for those who love fashion, Philadelphia is a great place to display your taste.

The King of Prussia mall is the east coast’s premier shopping destination and it is currently hosting a “What’s your look? My style” contest.

On Oct. 13, the mall introduced this contest to debut Philly’s fashion sense. Contestants will have the opportunity to display their own personal style by creating an outfit from pieces found from any stores in The King of Prussia mall.

For this 2008 fall season; the hottest trends are abstract and colorful dresses, skirts and pants, light sneakers with colorful laces, over sized bags and different accessories

put together according to “My style is pretty simple, I like to wear solids and sometimes patterns or stripes, but I doubt I’d enter anything like that since I am not very creative or daring like other trend-setters,” Lauren Iannece, senior history secondary education major, said.

Girls aren’t the only ones with their own taste these days.

“I think shoes make the outfit, so I have a lot of shoes. I don’t wear too many stripes. I wear just solid colors, and really no graphic tees or stuff like that. My style’s just simple, a pair of jeans, a good pair of shoes, a t-shirt and a hoodie,” Ryan Barrett, senior exercise science major, said.

If you still want to enter this contest, don’t worry, you still have time. Contestants have until Sunday, Nov. 30, to upload a look. You also will still have a chance to vote for your favorite looks.

Even if you’re not interested in participating in this contest, you can still go online and vote for a favorite look, comment on it and send it to a friend. You will get a chance to look at all the candidate’s outfits and get an idea of different trends out there.

If you happen to do a great job and become one of the 20 finalist there will be a fashion event at The King of Prussia Mall on Thursday, Dec. 4.

A fashion show will be put on to display the hottest looks. The top 10 men will be chosen as well as the top-ten women.

If you impress the judges you could win $1,500, $1,000 or $500 in King of Prussia gift cards, a nice present before the holidays. The winners will also be featured on, and in EStyle, King of Prussia’s fashion newsletter.

This is your opportunity to get out there and display your fashion sense. It could be a preppy style, bohemian or punk it’s your choice and your style.

This is your chance to exhibit what you wear and show your artist side or it’s a chance for those non-fashionable people to learn something and discover their own style.
