The STATEtorialist: ROY G. BIV Your Wardrobe

The STATEtorialist is a blog about Penn State, college sports, and fashion. Every week, Ben from The STATEtorialist will be writing a column for Onward State. If you like what you read, be sure to comment and read more at The STATEtorialist!

It’s apparent that spring has sprung in Happy Valley, which means when walking the streets, you’ll probably notice a little more variety in what people are wearing. I think females have a 6th sense when it comes to when the weather has definitely made a turn for the better, because the day where you see 90% of the girls around town in skirts or shorts is the day where you know its okay to hang up your North Face.

Tuesday was the first significantly nice day in State College, and it’s only looking better. Spring brings out a lot of potential wardrobe choices, but make sure you’re not just wearing shorts and a t-shirt, or no jacket. Show that you knowit’s spring by rocking a variety of colors.

Since it’s still early and can get a little chilly at night, I think the best way to do this is by adding a little color to two classics that happen to be perfect go-to items as well. First, check out Dockers colored Soft Khaki’s. I just picked up two pairs for $30 each. You can get them at Kohl’s and they have a lot of great colors for spring and summer. I bought a pair of Confederate Blue and Desert Red. These are pretty lightweight so you won’t get too warm in them, and they give off the vibe similar to girls wearing skirts that say, “It’s Springtime.”

Another great go-to is the pocket tee. Now you can get pocket tees almost anywhere. Gap has great prices on pocket tees and plenty of colors. When it comes to buying these, think easter eggs. You can get pocket tees in a number of pastel colors that look great with pretty much anything. Because they’re so basic, yet the colors still stand out, these are perfect for the break of spring and will even do you great into the summer months. Check out Riley’s Clothing’s Southern Marsh collection for some really nice ones.

There’s also nothing wrong with a little graphic pocket tee either. For bulk tee shirt orders check out M. Custom Tees. Michael from M. Custom tees has great pricing and can pretty much customize a shirt any way that you want. I’ve become a big fan of graphic tees, and to be able to customize your own in the colors that you want for the spring is superb.

The STATEtorialist:Things I’ve Seen Enough Of

In every post I have ever made, I have made suggestions on what to wear, but not once have I ever suggested what not to wear. I’m a firm believer in the thought that if you’re told (or suggested) what not to do, you’re more likely to stray away from doing it. Hey, you have to fail before you learn to succeed, and I’ve made one or two of these mistakes on what I like to think of as the rough road I’ve taken to finally know what I’m talking about (ha ha). So read up and soak it in, because a lot of these faux pas that I notice all too often usually end up in a disappointing head shake from me, but not a solution to the problem.


These problems, which can be found after the jump, are in no specific order, but you should not do any of them…please.
