By Jordyn Austin on February 23, 2017

However, even though they may be underrated, their fashion looks are one of a kind. Some of their looks are edgy, artsy, classy, casual, urban, and elegant. These are some fashion looks that may appeal to male and female college students, and may even provide inspiration for personal wardrobes.

Here are some underrated male and female celebrities that college students can model their fashion looks after.
