Welcome to the University of Pennsylvania, where traditions date back to 1740 and that signature Penn work ethic and intellectual rigor runs through students’ veins. While Penn has been recognized for its scholarship more so than its tailgates or sports lovers, this is not to say that Penn students aren’t brimming with Penn pride. We may not show it through our Penn jerseys or baseball caps, but there is no doubting that “for dear Pennsylvania, we wear the Red and Blue.”
This Fashionisto was spotted on Homecoming weekend in the typical and always fashionable Penn spirit wear. Donning the school’s colors in his maroon pants and blue button-down, this Fashionisto showcased his school pride while remaining true to Penn’s professional and traditional influences. To accessorize, this week’s Fashionisto wore a true Quaker’s favorite spirited accessory: a red and blue class scarf. Wearing his Warby Parker frames, this Fashionisto also showcased his quirky yet refined taste that was also true to the Wharton alumni that founded the glasses company. While every Quaker has been immensely affected by the time she or he has spent at the University, no student can forget the roles our homes have played in developing the people we are today. Adding a personal touch to his outfit, this Fashionisto accessorized with his signature string bracelets, a wolf ring and a DIY dollar bill ring.
The fashion at Penn has been very much consistent with a Penn student’s unofficial motto, “Work hard, play hard.” Full of school pride for everything including Hey Day, Penn Relays, Penn-Princeton and (of course) Spring Fling, it’s no wonder students are delighted to say “Hurrah, hurrah Pennsylvania!”
