Interested in the latest trends on the Brown college campus? Curious as to how one keeps their outfits on fleek up in the temperamental Providence weather? Don’t understand fashion at all and want a place to start? Welcome to Brown Threads – the only place to get the inside scoop on fashion at Brown! My name is Abby Espiritu, and I’m here to help you learn all about all looking chic and fabulous on campus.

I love shopping for good clothing, but I’m even a bigger sucker for cute and cheap clothes. As a current college student, I’ve learned that being economically savvy is always a good idea. However, just because I need to be careful with the amount of money I’m spending, doesn’t mean I have to turn down a new outfit or accessory.

Many stores offer discounts to college students, allowing them to be both frugal and fashionable. With a flash of your Brown University ID card, you can get a discount on many and more of your favorite clothing brands.
