We’ve all seen them. They’re sported in stylish patterns, texture, and colors like cream and crimson. They stand out in the tailgate fields and in Assembly Hall, but why? While many students play it safe on game day in red T-shirts and jerseys, these Fashionistas/os use sporting events as opportunities to show off the latest trends.
It’s true that it is easy to throw on an “IU Girls Are Red Hot” tee and a pair of jeans, but why not have a little fun with your school spirit? It’s obvious from the Fashionista here that school spirit can be easy, simplistic, and fashionable too. Showing off a new purchase from Nordstrom, this Fashionista caught my eye with her amazing lace-up riding boots. She matched them with a pair of olive shorts, and a festive cream and crimson polo. An ensemble like this may seem like just an everyday outfit, but throw this IU Fashionista into Memorial Stadium on game day and there is no doubt that she will be the focus of everyone’s attention.
Hint: If you’re having trouble deciding what is “school spirit appropriate,” just remember, you don’t have to run for the typical IU T-shirt. An example of a nontraditional piece for the next big event is this cap sleeve tunic from Forever 21. Don’t be afraid to use fun neutral accessories, as this Fashionista used tall, riding boots. Just remember, when everyone else is blending in with the T-shirt and jersey crowd, if you stick with these easy tips you’ll be the most stylish Fashionista in the stands!
