ACCESSORIES REPORT: Smells Like School Spirit

Accessories Report

In all honesty, high school was not the time for me to display my school spirit. Orange and black? My school’s colors reminded me of Halloween when October was ages away. I preferred a peplum blouse over a football jersey, and my pearls were my must have accessory during spirit week—not pom-poms.

As I have adjusted to life in college, I will admit that I find myself casually browsing Barnes and Nobles for the newest Emory affiliated gear. Whether it is a new baseball cap, a blue and gold tank or a sweater with the university’s seal, I guess you can safely assume I love my school.

It looks like I am not the only student on campus with school pride. Our Fashionisto this week was spirited in his own fashion as he sported an Emory University snapback. With spring in full bloom, the popular accessory for Fashionistas and Fashionistos tends to be a pair of Ray Bans. Why not make a statement? This Fashionisto’s spirited snapback was a fresh addition to his casual Sunday outfit.

Despite my love for baseball caps and how they keep an outfit from being too formal, snapbacks make an outfit edgier. Try a snapback like this with a black shift dress. You will instantly have all eyes in the room. Snapbacks supporting your favorite sports teams add a sense of character to your outfit, even if your team is at the university level.

The snapback is the accessory to add to your wardrobe this spring for both Fashionistas and Fashionistos. Whether you want to add a bit of edge to your ensemble or show some spirit, this accessory helps achieve just that. Plus, they are great for the bad hair days that we are all cursed with as finals loom before us.

Spotted: The snapback made an appearance in Jeremy Scott’s spring 2013 ready-to-wear show, proving that Fashionistas and Fashionistos can both rock this accessory.
