Natty Nittany: State Patty’s Edition!

In honor of State Patty’s day, I thought I would hit the streets to see the fashion do’s and don’ts that are running rampant around state college. As I predicted, everyone looks like a hot mess. But I think that’s part of the charm of State Patty’s day. You can walk around looking like Ke$ha, doing things that are usually covered by the dark of night or just by an RV at tailgating, and it’s OK to look like a cross between Snooki and a leprechaun (or are they the same thing?).

I’ve always been a fan of simple, understated outfits, and Danielle did a great job of showing her State Patty’s Day spirit without going crazy! The light green pashmina scarf, paired with the green bow and earrings do a great job of making her pop, without saying “look how drunk I am!” I think that’s what the official State Patty’s Day shirt is for. The moccasins and argyle sox add to the casual feel of this outfit and make it clean, simple, and fun.

Kristen, on the other hand, went all out. With her Penn State drinking pride, she sported this fabulous metallic green plastic wig and worked it. Like I always say, if you’re going to wear something outrageous, own it. Put on your beer jacket of courage, and wear that thing with pride. This is a great example of an outfit that doesn’t necessarily look good, but is definitely appropriate for the occasion. I’m going to look past the ugg boots and shorts over leggings, but the rhinestones and green eye shadow are a great option for spicing up this holiday look.

Natty Nittany: Sensational Fall Outfits

Even with the storm clouds of news and reporters in Happy Valley, the sun is out and it’s perfect fall weather. I am excited to report that this beautiful weather has meant the decline in North Face jackets I have been seeing around campus! Regardless of the fact that they don’t look good on anyone, it’s almost too hot for them. But this warm weather does not excuse the shredded denim mini-skirt and belly shirt outfit I saw yesterday. It’s not so hot that you can be delirious enough to dress like it’s 1998. I really wish I had taken a picture of it!
