Natty Nittany: Back To School Edition
We’ve been back to school for just over a week now, and I already want to dress like a bum. The excitement and pressure to look stylish during the first few days of class has worn off, and it’s just too hot to try to look good. And just by taking a look around campus, I think at least 75% of us are doing just that. That’s what makes this installment of Natty Nittany so impressive. These stylish students are braving the intense heat and humidity to dress their best.
Naomi looks like she’s ready to hit the beach, not head to class. Her romper (from TJ Maxx) is too summery to handle — a perfect combination of palm trees and flowers. Her BCBG sandals make this the ultimate August outfit.
Shubhsri is rocking an eclectic summer look. But what makes her digs different than the clothes at Urban is where they were bought. Parts of her killer outfit originate from London, while others stem from India.
Angela Brock and Maya Blue-Robinson
Angel (Right) and Maya (Left) made the line for McAllister’s Deli their runway. Angel was wearing a Francesca’s dress, Target earrings, and a Urban Outfitters headband. Maya was rocking a Forever 21 top with PacSun shorts, completed with Birkenstocks (which are easily one of the best options for trekking around campus).
Jessica was practically a walking rainbow! Her colorful dress is from Rue 21, nicely complimented by her awesome hair, and her trendy glasses sealed the deal.
I found Farah walking around in a Charlotte Russe ensemble with Toms shoes and a Ted Baker bag. The headband, which is also from Charlotte Russe, made the look a head-to-toe knock out.
Laura’s look made thrift shop fans proud. Her trendy outfit was a patchwork of thrift shop purchases and gifts. The look was topped off with a Bernie Sanders 2016 button. When I found Laura, she was downtown encouraging students to vote.
The lovely Lindsey Bell was wearing an American Eagle dress. Her sandals were a memento from a trip to Mexico, and the Coach backpack slung over her should completed this effortless ensemble.
Though Charley didn’t have time to talk, you’d have to agree that her style and accessories complimented one another perfectly. Who wouldn’t want to be seen around campus looking this trendy?
Katie was practically a ball of sunshine in a Charlotte Russe top and jewelry. Her bright shorts and gilded sandals are both from Plato’s closet.
Andrea, a grad student, found her beautiful jumpsuit in an unexpected place –Target! Her necklace keeps her close to home even at school — her mom has the exact same one!
Dayar Brown-Gurowitz and Rosario Patrizio
Dayar and Rosario were undoubtedly some of the best dressed guys on campus. Dayar (Left) had just finished attending a meeting. His entire ensemble originated in Italy. The clothes came from street vendors, stores, and even a thrift store. Rosairo (right) sported a combination of Michael Kors and Calvin Kline.
While Neil wasn’t sure where he bought his trendy clothes, he knew that some pieces were Nordstrom. Does it matter where his threads are from? With looks that fresh, who cares where he got them from!
