From Fork to Outfit: What is your style based on your go-to lunch?


From Fork to Outfit: What is your style based on your go-to lunch?

Bet we can guess what your style is by what you eat for lunch on Penn’s campus.

Whether you are in a rush between classes or you’re taking the afternoon off to catch up with friends, lunch is an essential part of every Penn student’s daily routine. People say that your taste in food says a lot about you–just like your taste in fashion. We decided to combine the two and try to guess your style based on what you grab for lunch. Whether it’s a Honeygrow stir-fry, a sushi bowl, or a salad from Beefsteak, your taste buds reveal more about your style than you’d think!

1. Pret-a-Manger sandwiches for the win

You’re a busy one who doesn’t always have time to sit down and have a proper meal. Between your group meetings, sports practice, and classes, you are one of those busy bees that you have to make lunch plans with a week in advance. That’s why, most of the time, you need something nutritious, filling and easy to eat on the go. So, what outfit would describe your dynamic lifestyle? If we had to guess, it’d be something like a pair of well-fitted denim jeans with some high-top Converse and a light knitted sweater–versatile, comfortable, but still stylish.

2. Beefsteak salad

You are conscious about your health and want to make the right choices when it comes to healthy eating. If there was an outfit equivalent to a build-your-own Beefsteak salad, it would probably be an edgy, eye-catching combination, such as a fur coat paired with some trendy slippers for the ultimate mix of style and comfort.

3. Sushi bowl/sushi roll

You’d rather not spend too much time or thought on what you want to eat for lunch, which is why you often reach out for the quick and refreshing option of a sushi roll. The same goes for your style: you like to be noticeable without spending too much time planning an outfit. On a gloomy Monday afternoon, you’re most often seen wearing boyfriend jeans and a white t-shirt, maybe paired with a cool jacket or a blazer. Cool and effortless!

5. Honeygrow stir-fry or salad

You’ve just left the gym, hair still wet from the shower, and you need something quick but nourishing before going back to a packed schedule. Even after a day of working out and being active, however, you still like to remain looking put-together and pay attention to your looks. You are following the latest trends in fitness gear–whether it’s LuluLemon or Gymshark, your activewear always attracts jealous looks no matter where you go.

6. A Houston Hall Pasta Addict

Whether a warm and hearty penne dish or a colourful pasta salad, your lunch always includes pasta and you like to experiment with the different options you can pair it with. We’d say that you have a few staple pieces in your wardrobe that you like to spice up with different accessories and statement items. Whether it’s a favourite pair of black jeans, a nice cashmere sweater or a nice leather jacket, you always make it look new and exciting by creating different combinations.

Food and style have always been two closely-related areas and it’s always fun to try and find the connection between the two. That being said, don’t feel as if you are restricted to only one particular style; be brave enough to go out of your comfort zone and experiment, whether it’s  with an outfit or a different lunch option. It’s easy to get caught up in your own routine and habits but, hopefully, with this fun little piece, we’ve opened up your mind on the different options that Penn’s campus offers–and the different trends you could try!
