There’s been an overlying trend of tank tops and shorts around campus lately. While I’ve spotted numerous two-piece, basic outfits as students compensate their outfit for the warm weather, my undeniable love for layers remains. My theory is: you can only take off so much clothing while commuting around campus in the heat, but when it comes to sitting in chilly lecture halls for three hours, having that one extra layer to easily put on/take off will save you. Fashionista Rebecca Wheeler’s outfit serves as a noteworthy example of how to layer on campus for spring and summer heat. Wheeler’s coral blazer instantly caught my eye and made her stand out. That’s what being a Fashionista/o is all about, right?
