It’s back-to-campus season and that means for some of us, there’s a wave of heat seeping through our dorm rooms. Here in Iowa, heat combined with humidity creates the perfect conditions for a sweat fest. But have no fear! It’s possible to survive the sticky heat without running around campus sans clothing and scarring brains. It is also possible to look dapper and be comfortable all at once, especially with fun patterns such as stripes.
Stripes can allow a person to stand out from the crowd, and at the same time do it with maximum comfort. For example, this Fashionisto took a laid-back summer approach with a cotton tee and some sweet red-laced tennis shoes. Humid heat is no fun, but it is fun to look hot with minimal preparation time and striped shorts are a fuss-free way to achieve that look. To achieve Aaron’s look, throw on a pair of striped or patterned shorts and a cool graphic tee. Style doesn’t have to be hard. College classes are hard enough without the added stress of looking put-together! Wear what you want and how you want, as long as it’s clean, and in no time, you’ll look like a lean, mean (nice) oiled machine.
Hint: To create a conversation starter, wear something that represents an area where you come from. For example, this Fashionisto is wearing a T-shirt that doubles as the Colorado state flag. It will amaze you when people strike a conversation with you about common interests you two share because of an article of clothing. You never know, a Yellowstone National Park hoodie or a snapback from Hawaii could help you find a best friend!
