The first month of my first fall semester at ASU’s Downtown Phoenix campus has past. Every time I walk to class, I always see other students rocking a variety of different styles.
So, I compiled a lookbook of some of my favorites I’ve seen on campus to provide fresh inspiration for your outfits this semester.
When I asked to take a picture of Yazmin’s outfit, I was shocked to find out that almost all of it was thrifted. She raved about how she got her jeans for only three dollars and her shirt for almost nothing. I personally love the dad polo trend, and I think adding a tied front gives the look a feminine touch. Yazmin paired her outfit with some shoes from the Gap and a bag from Timbuk2. The orange and blue complement each other perfectly for a fun summertime look.
Everyday (Not-So) Casual
Off-the-shoulder tops can be found at nearly every store you go into —Pacsun, Brandy Melville, the list goes on. These tops are very trendy, and I loved how Sofia styled her outfit around this shirt. The overall idea was simple but with some accessorizing, she was able to amp up from casual to chic. My favorite part of her look was the bag from Amazon. The pastel pink and blue juxtaposed the red and denim of her shirt and jean set. Her Nike shoes from Nordstrom completed the outfit to give it a not-so-casual vibe.
Floral never goes out of style and as summer comes to a close, it is time to embrace as much of the pattern as possible. Miranda’s shirt caught my eye and the bralette underneath really made the pattern pop. I liked how she matched the colors, and her accessories were as effortless as her bralette and scrunchie. Scrunchies are a must accessory-wise, especially in the Arizona heat. They are super affordable and cuter than regular hair ties, especially for putting your hair up as the sun gets unbearable. Miranda told me that her shorts were DIY’ed from a regular pair of Levi’s jeans. She said it’s something she often jeans with jeans since it gives old denim a fresh, new start.
For my look, I kept things simplistic. I usually stick to one color and work around it. Since I recently dyed my hair rose gold, I focused my outfit and makeup on pinks to really bring out the color in my hair. The lighter tones in my Illa Illa jumpsuit highlight the ones in my hair. Jumpsuits are one of my favorite fashion pieces — I actually have this jumpsuit in three different colors. As a taller girl, jumpsuits accentuate the length of my legs and make me feel more confident than normal pants do. I topped off the outfit with white trainers from Primark and pink socks from Aerie to give the outfit another small pop of color.
