Francis Alip is a final year student majoring in biology & psychology with a chemistry minor at Jacksonville University.

He has; served as the president of several prominent organizations on campus, done several types of research, and always made our eyebrows rise from his fashion sense.

He is also a member of the Presidential Leadership Advisory Council and a Student Representative on the Pre-Health Committee on campus.

"In high school, I never had any nice clothes, and I had very low self-esteem. In college, I wanted to reinvent myself so that summer, I worked a lot to save up money to get some clothes. 

I like being able to represent myself well as well as express my personality through what I wear. It gives me a lot of confidence and allows me to feel secure when I’m in any situation.

I'm still trying to expand my boundaries and experiment with new things, but so far, I've come a long way, and it's a wonderful feeling when someone says "you look nice." I genuinely love helping those around me, and I think it's those impacts that live on once you are gone. ~Francis Alip

As I share his week of outfits with you, I hope you get inspired to be a fashion god/goddess wherever you may be.


This particular Monday was rainy, and I needed to get comfy.


Tuesday’s are usually my workout days, so I tend to wear;


As a head tutor, Wednesdays are my big tutoring days, and I like to wear button-ups for a touch of professionalism.

  • Shirt: Poplin button-up shirt from Abercrombie & Fitch
  • Pants: Blue Jeans from Hollister
  • Sneakers: White Vans sneakers


As a leader and someone who is quite involved on campus, I wore this outfit to a meeting with Dr. Dean Gover – Senior Vice President, Dean of Students.

  • Shirt: Maroon Checkered Shirt from Express
  • Pants: Black pants from Express
  • Shoes: Black Oxfords from Aldo


On a cold Friday, all you need is a stylish but “comfy” outfit

  • Shirt: Gray Henley Shirt from American Eagle
  • Cardigan: Gray Cardigan from Abercrombie & Fitch
  • Jacket: Army Green Jacket from Abercrombie & Fitch
  • Pants: Light Wash Jeans from Abercrombie & Fitch
  • Sneakers: White Vans sneakers


  • Shirt: White Long Sleeve Henley shirt from Abercrombie & Fitch
  • Flannel shirt: Blue and yellow buffalo flannel from Abercrombie & Fitch
  • Jacket: Bomber jacket from Amazon
  • Pants: Black Jeans from Abercrombie & Fitch
  • Sneakers: White Vans sneakers

ACCESSORIES: The only accessories I wear are watches, and occasionally I wear bracelets. The gold and silver watches are from Michael Kors while the leather banded watch is from Fossil.

You might have noticed that most of my outfits are from Abercrombie & Fitch. I like their style, and I appreciate their unbranded clothings because I do not like wearing logos as much. I also love my Vans sneakers, Haha!

From Francis: As I work towards getting accepted at the University of Florida’s Dental School, I don’t want only to develop myself as a person and become a more competitive applicant but also to influence others positively. I also wish to leave an impact on Jacksonville University that lives on even after I’m gone. My parents have sacrificed a lot to bring me where I am today, so I try not to take anything for granted and do my absolute best in all I do.

Before starting dental school, I will be completing JU’s accelerated MBA program to develop myself as a leaser further and to prepare myself to own my private practice one day eventually.

It’s been a pleasure sharing my life & style with you.

Now create your life
