WHAT TO WEAR: Family Weekend

What to Wear

Cars are pouring onto campus. Warm welcomes are being given. Tours are being given, and students are showing off their college life. This can only mean that it’s family weekend at High Point University. About 76 percent of students at High Point are from out-of-state.  Some students cannot wait to have the freedom that comes with going to a school further away from home. Others find themselves getting homesick. Either way, a visit from the folks always does some good.

When families come for a visit, High Point works hard to put their best foot forward through its clean facilities, excellent staff and superb dining options. However, the school itself is not the only thing that wants to make a good impression on parents. Students tend to match their attire with the occasion, pulling outfits and accessories that complement each other to create the perfect look.

With a warmer front coming through North Carolina, this Fashionista reached for a cute but casual dress. This dress from Express is exactly what every girl at High Point should have. Its three-quarter sleeves make it functional for the fall or a warmer winter day. The cut of the dress is flattering with a synched waist and flared skirt.

Although the simple plum color of the dress could stand alone, this Fashionista added her own touch with a colorful scarf from American Eagle Outfitters. The scarf adds a touch of color, while still tying in to the color of the dress. The plum tassels on the scarf play off the dress perfectly, while the pink and blue accents brighten it up.

Fashionistas can never go wrong by wearing flats. Flats are both functional and fashionable, which is perfect for family weekend as students walk around showing off their school to visitors. This Fashionista added a hint of sparkle to her look with her brown flats.

One Simple Change: When colder weather sweeps through, Fashionistas can add tights and a pair of brown combat boots to make this look ideal for a stroll on the quad.
