There are all kinds of cool events at the beginning of the school year to welcome incoming freshmen and all the returning students back to campus, but last Thursday’s Badger Fest at Union South was by far my favorite. Why, you ask? The fabulous Seventeen Magazine was there, of course! My fellow Style Guru, Taylor Viegut, and I were there to get the fashion low-down from the mag and the Fashionistas attending.
One look at Seventeen’s Style Institute and you can see exactly how any CollegeFashionista would want to dress this fall. Wedge sneakers, loafers, lots of denim, and cozy T-shirts are on Seventeen’s must-have list. As for the Fashionistas attending the event, the warm weather meant they were still donning summer pieces. That doesn’t mean that they weren’t showing their excitement for fall though; autumnal colors like dark green, camel, navy and orange were definitely present, as well as fun, super trendy accessories like killer sneakers, pointy flats, and the ever-present backpack.
On top of giving out great style advice, Seventeen handed out swag bags that contained awesome Paul Mitchell hair products, New York Color makeup, fun Mead notebooks, Ralph Lauren perfume samples, sunglasses, a cool tank top and more!
Attending this event was definitely a killer way to kick off another school year. Seventeen always knows how to get the job done in style.
