Think you’re the most stylish girl on campus?
Thanks to Stylitics.com, a revolutionary new resource for tracking your style progression, you can rest assured you are winning in the game of fashion.
Rohan Dueskar and Zach Davis, co-founders of Stylitics.com, began this endeavor about a year ago and have had tremendous success since.
The site is an online resource for style gurus around the world. Not only is this a great resource for tracking and sharing style ideas, but it provides a chance to win points and prizes while doing so.
Currently, the Stylitics team is working with HerCampus.com, the No. 1 online magazine for college women, to launch a campaign to find the most stylish campus in the country.
The contest began April 16 and will continue through May 10.
Collectively, Stylitics and Her Campus have student representatives on more than 220 campuses.
Jessica Novak, marketing manager for Stylitics, has high hopes for West Virginia University’s potential success in the contest.
"WVU has been in the top three since day one," Novak said.
Originally in first place, WVU has fallen to the second spot. However, there is still plenty of time and reason to regain the title.
The top 50 students with the most points will win a feature on HerCampus.com and a prize package from different sponsors.
The top five schools with the most points will then go to a panel of industry experts, who will determine the most stylish campus in America and feature them in Her Campus magazine.
The top 25 students at that school will receive an additional prize.
Though Stylitics is designed to be accessible for people of all ages, all around the world, college students in America have shown great interest in the site.
"We’ve had a really great response so far, and we’re just hoping that students will just engage in the site and really check out everything it has to offer," Novak said.
The team has been diligent and excited to work with students.
"Stylitics is a great way for students to express their style, their school spirit and to get excited about this great new way to put your wardrobe online," Novak said.
With a home base in New York City, Stylitics has created an Ambassador Program by teaming up with many colleges around the country to get on-campus representatives for the site.
"We have college students across the country who work with us to promote Stylitics on their campus. They in turn create trend reports for us based on what they observe and what they track on their campuses," Novak said.
These student ambassadors are given the unique opportunity to interact with monthly speakers like Caroline Waxler from Lucky Magazine.
"It provides a connection to the New York City fashion scene and a mentorship from really successful names in the industry," Novak said.
