Labor Day is summer’s last hoorah, Fashionistas, so pull out your summer's finest and celebrate like it’s 1999 (in July, of course)! This Fashionista, however, was celebrating summer in a much more retro way with her vintage, button-down t-shirt and khaki shorts; her look is very 1960s and perfectly summer-chic. A printed button down is the epitome of retro and cool enough for summer weather; however, if this Labor Day is a bit chilly, you can wear this shirt with pants or a sweater over it. If button downs aren’t your style, you can still wear this trend with just a regular t-shirt or sweater with a fun, bold print. Whichever way you wear a fun printed shirt, it will be the perfect end to your summer wardrobe, and let you go out with a bang!
Thrift stores are the best place to find a unique printed shirt; this guarantees that you will be the only one on campus with your particular shirt, and you have more of a chance of scoring a vintage find! Although it may take some searching, thrift stores often have some really fun, interesting pieces amongst their racks, and at a great price. This Fashionista found her shirt at her local Salvation Army for $5.99. This Fashionista also embodies our Taking Ivy contest. The 60’s were filled with bold prints worn in a subtle way. Her red and white patterned shirt paired with smart looking shorts and a classic sneaker give this Fashionista a classic on-campus look straight from the past.
Hint: If your local thrift store is lacking, head to the nearest city. A city will have a larger selection from more diverse backgrounds!
