College is synonymous with freedom. From the people you choose to be your friends, the activities you become involved with or your political stance on pending issues, in college there is no one to tell you what to do. And as for fashion, well, the same rule applies. While yoga pants and sweats are the unanimous favorites among most college kids, some students choose to step out of the comfort zone and experiment with style. You have the once in a lifetime chance to try exciting new trends without running the risk of breaking any dress code. With the first weeks of school in full swing, I spotted some of the most stylish students at UC Davis.
A huge trend that hit the summer like a tidal wave was the high-low skirt. Somewhat of a clothing mullet, the skirt is knee-length or higher in the front then swooping back into a maxi length. Liana Hsu is simplistic and chic with her beach-inspired white frock. Despite the official beginning of the fall season, Davis is still 90 degrees– upsetting for those who are eager to wear cozy sweaters and coats. Liana pairs her dress with some strap-y leather sandals and delicate jewelry, creating an easy, breezy look on a busy school day.
Burgundy and dark wine colors are big for fall and are definitely eye-catching colors. Nicolette Lacson’s dark magenta sundress stood out amongst the sea of T-shirts and shorts. This dress could work for so many different body types. With a cinched waist and flounce-y skirt, it will surely flatter the best parts of you. The button and pocket details add a preppy flair, as do her Sperry Topsiders and oversized cat eye sunglasses. For all those Davisites, a note of caution: It is near impossible to bike in a short dress; stick to walking!
Yet another popular trend that is continuing into the fall season is sheer fabric. From shirts to dresses, grandmother’s slips are being thrown out to reveal what lies underneath. One of the more risquÃ© looks is showcasing your brassiere beneath a sheer blouse. However, if you are not quite ready to reveal all of Victoria’s secrets, then try something a bit more appropriate. Christine Young does a sheer black, maxi skirt and underneath wears a short opaque skirt. This is revealing without being provocative. You still get to show off your legs without feeling completely exposed. With a buttoned up, collared blouse and a pendant necklace, Christine certainly knows how to keep it classy.
