Gamecock spirit is all over campus!
As USC students we take pride in our Carolinian traditions and most important our Gamecock football. Students get dolled up in their little black dresses and cowboy boots for the football games. We make sure that we are covered in our school colors: garnet and black. The atmosphere in the student section of the football games is unbelieve as USC students' obsession with the gamecocks is apparent. I feel so fortunate to go to a school that is accompanied by great spirit. This is seen not only on game days but as Fashionistas sport these colors on campus. Game Day was approaching and I spotted Hope by the Business Administration building. She looked classy in her prim garnet slacks and her tailored white button down. Hope is a native born Carolinian and loves the University of South Carolina. I thought she was a picture perfect Fashionista with true Gamecock spirit that was admirable.

How-To: Garnet is similar to burgundy which is a popular fall color. Wear printed garnet pants or leggings still emphasizing your school spirit with flare. Hope wears a classy white oxford for a simplicity look. If you have a dressier occasion to attend wear a chiffon collared blouse. Add a black cropped sweater over your oxford. Accessorize with spiked jewelry and colorful bangles. Throw on a leopard scarf on colder days and a fur vest. Fedoras are perfect for windy days and are so cute accented with feathers. Fashionistas love tall leather boots adorned with studs and shine.
For this week Fashionistas show your school spirit through your style.
