A snapshot of fashion trends from our first year back on campus.
By Isabelle Delostrinos
We did it, Gaels! A full year of in person classes and events! This year we got to ditch Zoom and the sweats we have been living in during 2020. We finally had the chance to rock all of our quarantine purchases and actually put on a complete outfit every single day. What better way to express ourselves and our styles than through our clothes? Here are some of the fashion trends that got us through this school year.
The overwhelming trend of white Nike Air Force 1s in 2019 has held strong throughout the school year and will probably still be relevant this summer. The simple silhouette and basic staple of an all white shoe pulled different types of outfits together. They pair perfectly with thoughtful outfits like a good pair of denim and light outerwear jacket. But they also hold down the fort for lazy outfits like sweats and a hoodie. Whether they are a new, crisp pair straight out of the box or a beater pair that survived another night of running through the city, white Nike Air Force 1s have been a go to for many.
In an effort to adjust back to regular life and things like commuting or actually leaving the dorms to go to class, athleisure was a common outfit on campus. Staying true to Bay Area fashion and the Silicon Valley formula, leggings and sweats paired with a comfy jacket were spotted in almost every class this year. Whether it was a Lululemon Scuba jacket with black leggings or an SMC hoodie with sweats, comfy was the name of the game when it came to making it on time to an early morning class.
