The IT List: Bookstore Chic 05.08.12
Imagine our excitement upon discovering the article on Hercampus discussing a fabulous trend at Fordham University: Bookstore Chic. The article commented on everything from Free T-shirts to fashion forward clothes and accessories. We are beyond thrilled to share some of what this blogger included on her list of favorites as well as add in a tip or two of our own. Check it out for yourself!
1. Free T-Shirts: Nearly every college or university is more than happy to present students with an array of free collegiate shirts. Whether you wear them to the gym or out (perhaps after reading our Stylish Ways to Wear Your Favorite T-Shirt post?), no one will be questioning your school spirit. Paying for cool clothes is definitely last-season.
**BNC Tip: Have an exorbitant amount of T-shirts you just aren’t going to wear? Check out our DIY Dorm blog post and turn them into cute pillows for your dorm room!
2. Lounge Wear and Hoodies: Sneak a peak into any morning lecture and chances are a good portion of the students are sporting comfortable clothing or a collegiate hoodie. Logo-ed yoga pants let students feel extra comfy without looking sloppy. This look (pictured left) gets two-thumbs up from us!
3. Our Pick: Style for a Cause! Our trend tables are always bursting with attention-grabbing accessories. The best part, however, is that many of these accessories don’t just look great, they support a great cause! From beaded bracelets to cascading scarves, the most beautiful parts of these pieces are the stories behind them (Keep your eyes peeled in June when we spotlight all of our favorites!).
