TREND: Fashionable Fans

We’ve made it through our first month of classes, and if you’re like me, you are remembering why you love IU so much and the town that surrounds it. The University’s atmosphere, the culture, the arts, and the music, make it such an exciting place to be. In just a few weeks, we will be able to show our school spirit as IU Homecoming approaches.

As Fashionistas and Fashionistos, we find every occasion in life an occasion to be stylish and fashion-forward. I found this Fashionista on Kirkwood exhibiting a few key pieces you should have on hand to put together the most stylish homecoming ensemble. This Fashionista put together an outfit that looked relaxed and chic at the same time. Take a look at her denim shorts. A cool pair of destroyed boyfriend shorts, like these, will serve as functional and fun, but also right on trend. Be sure to find your own pair to wear to a tailgate or in the stands.

I also really love this Fashionista’s oversized aviator sunglasses, which she referred to as her "sunnies." They are a great accessory to have and really top off her look. Find a pair of oversized shades or "sunnies," particularly aviators or wayfarers. They are essential for fashionable fans. Take both these key pieces and make sure to wear them with your best cream and crimson to most fashionably show your Hoosier pride.

Hint: Check out a local thrift store or Goodwill and try making a pair of destroyed jean shorts yourself! You could even take an old pair of your own jeans and cut them down to shorts. It’s really easy and inexpensive. There are many websites with d-i-y tips on how to create a pair of your own, but here's one that I especially like.
