By now, even the freshmen girls all have made their “The U Invented Swagger” T-shirts into dresses and have amassed a sizable collection of cut-up orange Miami tops. It sometimes seems our student body has forgotten we have a second school color: green. For the next game day, upgrade from your destroyed orange look and get your swagger on in a green dress.
This Fashionista wears her green well. She picks a shade and shape that compliments her coloring and figure. If you want a dress like this Fashionista’s, you’re in luck. Raid the end-of-summer sales, and you're likely to find this summery tube-style dress, along with many other strapless cuts, at a great price. Lucky for us, summery clothing can be worn year-round in Miami.
Strapless dresses work great during the day now and can be paired with a lightweight cardigan (preferably in a neutral or orange) for indoor events or night games later in the season. If you aren’t a fan of sleeveless dresses, a tank dress will work just as well.
Orange accessories are a great way to emphasize your ‘Canes spirit in a green dress. Otherwise, stick to neutral accessories, like this Fashionista’s long charm necklace. Also stick to neutrals or orange for shoes and purses.
For some fun variations on this look, try a dress with a green print or stripes. If you want to make a bigger statement or go for a dressier look, a dress with more detailing, like ruffles, will do the trick. Conversely, if a green dress is too much for you, try pairing a neutral top with a green bottom, or vice versa.
Hint: The key to a classy, spirited look that will make others green with envy of your style is picking a shade of green that flatters you and letting it take center stage. A bold look like this doesn’t need flashy accessories.
