Back-to-school fashions reflect season, diversity

By Emilia Silva


Once again we are back in school and fashion is in full swing.

Whether you are a returning student or a freshman or transfer, the trends do not change. Trends for back-to-school include maxi dresses and skirts in an array of colors and patterns, as well as skinny jeans or pants in bright colors and pastels or with rips in them.

Many are wearing loose-fitting tank tops with bandeau tops underneath. Several female students have been seen wearing sequins in summer colors. Back-to-school trends include cropped pants, tank tops, and cardigans for the cold classrooms. Prints, prints, prints galore –everything from plaid to the typical floral print to bird and other animal prints. Sheer blouses and summer-colored lace tops are all the rage.

   Male students can be seen wearing polo shirts, bright shoes or shoes with bright details, and jeans. Bootcut jeans seem to be the popular choice among male students, while they also seem to be in favor of the midtop shoe rather than low or high tops. Many male students have also been roaming around campus in shorts of all types, especially khaki and plaid shorts. Other fashions young men on campus are seen wearing include striped shirts and graphic tees as well. Male students have been seen wearing casual button-up shirts with their sleeves rolled. Several can also be seen wearing baseball hats, snapbacks, fedoras and loose-knitted hats.
