Campus Style: Best trends of summer

With summer coming to an end, it’s hard to believe students will soon be rushing around campus in fabulous new outfits. Reflecting on this season’s trends, it’s safe to say this summer’s fashion was one for the books.

We’ve seen some of these trends before, as fashion comes full circle. For instance, this summer we saw an explosion of retro-styled bathing suits. The high-cut bikinis and one pieces were everywhere––just about every online retail site had some available to purchase. But, the retro swimsuit style wasn’t the only one to hit the beaches. From the plethora of cut-out one-pieces to off-the-shoulder bikinis, it seemed like no one cared about silly tan lines this year. As long as they got to show off their stylish bathing suits, they were content.

As for denim, yes the mom jeans (and shorts) are still in. At this point, low-rise anything just feels wrong. Pair your mom jeans with an off-the-shoulder top and birkenstock sandals and you’ve got the perfect first day of school outfit. But don’t forget your accessories! Chokers go perfectly with an off-the-shoulder top and can be found in almost any store.

Although I’m excited to enter the fall fashion season, we still have a little more time before the weather turns and leaves begin to pile up. So don’t forget to bring your favorite summer fashion items back to school and keep these trends alive as long as we can.
