The quad at Whittier College––most commonly known as the Campus Center––can easily be labeled as the heart of the campus. It entails the student store, media offices, two dining options and of course, a large open space made available for events or eating lunch with friends. This is definitely where all the action happens and it is without a doubt the most populated location on campus. With that being said, this is a place to dress casually due to the chances of running into a professor or some friends.
I spotted this Fashionisto catching up with some friends dressed in a casual yet very stylish outfit. To recreate this look start with a light wash chambray shirt. This item should be a wardrobe staple in every male and female closet due its versatility. I anticipate that the chambray shirt will be considered a classic piece that can be worn with different styles and in different seasons. Next, wear a puffy vest such as this one from Urban Outfitters for some added texture and warmth for those chilly days. Ladies, these vests from Forever 21 are also a great way to add a pop of color. Then wear a pair of straight leg pants in a caramel or light brown color. Thrown on some comfortable tennis shoes and a watch and this outfit is ready to hit the quad.
One Simple Change: Turn this look from casual to a bit more formal by switching the puffy vest for a sweater vest. Your outfit is ready for a dinner date or meeting with a professor.
