As many universities across the nation are preparing to welcome students back for another year, U of O is still in the thick of its summer vacation. However, fashion is always seasons ahead so it’s never too early to start planning for your fall wardrobe.

If you want to add color, try incorporating a burnt orange or forest green sweater vest instead, or for extra character, this striped vest by Etro.
