Must haves for fall fashion on campus

There is just no way I would make it to class in time if I was wearing the newest fashions: A head-to-toe Marc by Marc Jacobs patterned pantsuit, 5-inch stilettos and socks under my heels.

Tara Jeffries

Name: Tara Jeffries Major: Journalism Year: Freshman Hometown: Stokesdale Tara is wearing: Tara has such great color blocking in this outfit. I love the combination of emerald green and royal blue to create a trendy look. Her black v-neck top and white sweater add just the right amount of contrast to perfect her outfit. Tara’s style advice: “I just try to find the cutest outfits for the least amount of money.”

Elena Sanchez

Name: Elena Sanchez Year: Junior Major: Public Relations and International Studies Hometown: Fort Bragg Elena is wearing: Elena’s outfit is not entirely hers, She is Residence Assistant on the fourth floor of Ruffin Residence Hall and a group of residents started doing ‘clothing swaps.’ In her words, why should you go out and buy news clothes, when there are girls living all around you with great pieces?

Campus Trend Spotter: Ankle Booties

It’s starting to get a little too chilly to wear your rainbows, jack rogers or strappy sandals around campus. The leaves are starting to crunch beneath our feet, football season is gearing up and students are starting to change their fashion to accomodate the chillier weather. One of the best and easiest ways to maket his transition is to purchase a pair of ankle booties. Not as warm as full fledged Uggs or snow boots, ankle booties still look cute with summery clothes, but make an outfit more fall-appropriate, not to mention they will keep your feet warmer! Check out sophomore Lauren Schofield wearing a pair of Frye ankle boots.

Blair Crumpler

Name: Blair Crumpler Year: Freshman Major: Environmental Science Hometown: Tallahassee, Fla. What Blair is wearing: Blair does a great job of defining how to dress casually while still staying trendy with this look. Cuddled up with a book at a picnic table next to the union, Blair sports a graphic tee-shirt with high waisted Urban Outfitters ripped shorts. The ripped shorts are detailed with flowered patchwork fabric that accentuates the color in her tee and ribbon headband. Blair completes her look by adding accessories like her bangle bracelets and gold earrings. Blair’s style advice: “I just dress to express my personality. Usually, I wear lots of flowy things because that represents me.”

Vote on which DTH editor needs a makeover

The Daily Tar Heel office is a world of key boards clicks, phone interviews, intense concentration… and cargo shorts. Although we love our male editors, their style just doesn’t match their writing skill. So, as any good fashion blogger would – I decided to step in and help.

Campus Trend Spotter: Nail Color

The Carolina blue that is showing up on everyone’s finger nails has very little to do with school spirit. Luckily for us, we can thank the fashion world for conveniently making this season’s nail colors match those of our University.
