It’s that time of year again Stags, back to school! Time to hang up those swimsuits and put away that sunscreen because classes are about to start. Just because the weather gets colder doesn’t mean our style has to suffer. The back to school season tends to still be on the warmer side so make sure you’re not just packing sweaters and jeans. The first week of school is a great time to play with fashion. Step out of the box, wear that summer fit you loved, or wear a swimsuit to a darty.

There are many different styles on the Fairfield campus so don’t feel like you have to dress a certain way. Each outfit I put together is going to be for different kinds of styles, but feel free to mix and match, as Rachel Zoe says, “style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.”
A great way to express your “preppy” style but keeping it casual for class is to pair a cute blouse with a pair of jeans. Spice it up with a little color in your shoes or with some fun earrings.
Athleisure, Athleisure, Athleisure!! This is a go to style for me, plus if you actually dress like you’re going to the gym it may actually make you want to go.
For an edgier look try incorporating bold patterns and colors into your outfits. Animals patterns and neons are super trendy right now, so if you’re looking to stand out this is the way to do it.
Bold earrings are a go to for me. They spice up any outfit whether hoop or dangle you can’t go wrong. My favorite spot to get fun earrings is Francesca’s. Francesca’s can be found in many locations but to keep the small boutique feel, they don’t sell the same things in every store, so make sure you keep an eye out for things you like there. If you find it hard incorporating the bold colors into your outfits opt for a chucky hoop, youtuber Maggie MacDonald swears by her gold hoops and assures her fans they go with everything.
