If there is one place to be on campus, it’s the quad. If you need a mid-day nap, a place to eat lunch, take a breather or maybe you just want a convenient a place just to catch up with some friends—the quad is the place for you. This special place on campus is a hub for a diverse amount of activities and all types of people. There is also no better place to show off your stylish outfit.
Luckily I took my daily stroll to class right past the Dexter Lawn and came across this Fashionista ready to take her day by storm. While playing with neutral tones, she adds a pop of color to her look by incorporating green into her outfit. She wears a basic, white flowy tank top underneath her denim jacket with differing sweatshirt style sleeves. If you do not own this type of jacket, wearing a hoodie underneath a denim jacket or vest will give you the same look. What is so great about layering, especially with fall around the corner, is the ability to peel away layers if it gets too toasty throughout the day.
On the bottom, this Fashionista wears green corduroy pants that she cuffs to accentuate her black gladiator sandals. To accessorize, she goes for a more boho look by putting on a headband and stacking on some bracelets. The great thing about the Free People headband is that it is versatile and you can wear it in so many different ways. We often think that wearing a headband outside is only for festivals, but do not be afraid to be bold and stand out just as this Fashionista did!
In between class, enjoy the quad and all it has to offer. They do say spending at least 20 minutes in the sun each day makes you a happier and a well nourished, vitamin D filled human being! There is not much that can top that for a mid-day break.
One Simple Change: If you’re ever caught on the quad during a storm, this look can easily be altered to work for a rainy day by wearing boots instead of sandals and bringing along an umbrella to protect you from the rain.
