With school in session, students are bringing their personal style to campus. One trendsetter who deserves an A is Alex Eddy, a University of Colorado at Denver senior who was rocking a zebra frock with a punk attitude.

Spotted at: Outside the Tivoli Student Union on the Auraria campus.

Profession: I am a shift supervisor at Starbucks and I also work at the Women's Resource Center on campus. I am also a senior at CU Denver; I'm majoring in film and video production.

Favorite film: American Beauty by Sam Mendes.

2013 jam: "Recovery" by Frank Turner.

Style inspirations/icons: My biggest style icon is Joan Jett. Sometimes I go for a bohemian vibe. I'm really inspired by the punk era.

Favorite color: Purple.

Favorite accessory: My red leopard-print scarf.

Style mantra: I got this.

Shops at: I mostly shop at thrift stores, places like Buffalo Exchange and Goodwill. I also like Etsy.com and Uniquevintage.com is fabulous.

Both of Eddy's ears are pierced multiple times, for a dozen total piercings. "If something inspires me, then I'll wear it," says Eddy. Here she displays how punk rock has inspired her fashion with these combat boots.

Style analysis: Eddy teaches us all how to combine two different styles to form one original look. The delicate zebra blouse is a bit bohemian, while her olive pants with black combat boots have a very Joan Jett and the Blackhearts appeal. She fuses the two styles together with her own piercings and details that move her to the head of the class.

Never be afraid to combine two different styles, Denver.
