As spring isn’t quite yet stable, we are often hesitant about wearing transition jackets and cargo coats. Though it’d be easier to step out and feel the temperature before choosing outfits, we typically rely on our iPhones to dictate the weather. Instead of opting for outerwear on days like these, a staple piece to shield us from the occasional April chill is a cardigan. While some pair this classic item with a basic camisole or tank, cardigans also provide the perfect opportunity to show off your Greek life pride. Available in an array of colors and styles, they are easy to match with a set of sorority letters or even a customized graphic T-shirt.
I caught this week’s Fashionista on her way to class. A newly initiated member of Binghamton’s Alpha Epsilon Phi chapter, Greek life now takes over her wardrobe. At the center of her ensemble is a white V-neck from spring 2013 recruitment, which features the illustrious Sublime logo, adding pops of color to an otherwise simple top. To match the T-shirt’s edgy design, she selected a Tommy Hilfiger deep purple cardigan with vintage leather buttons. Other options include this Urban Outfitters oversized boyfriend cardigan, or this studded open knit from Tobi. This Fashionista finishes her chic look with medium-wash jeans and brown boots that complement the cardigan’s detailing.
One Simple Change: If you’re headed to the gym, Greek life apparel is a popular choice of attire. Keep on the T-shirt, but swap your jeans for athletic shorts. Slip into some running sneakers, like these by Puma, and get your workout on. No matter the occasion, sporting your sorority gear is guaranteed to make a fashionable statement.
