4E’s Fall Fashion Preview

Fall Fashion Preview

As fall gets underway, the leaves aren’t the only things changing on campus — so are the styles. Last week, The Guide published their annual Fall Fashion Issue with great success. However, the final photos that made it into the newspaper are but a small fraction of the photos from a grueling photo shoot. Here at 4E, we took it upon ourselves to publish some exclusive photos that didn’t quite make the final cut. Behold, 4E’s Fall Fashion Preview.

Ties are always in style, but why only wear them around your neck? Throw one around your head for a twist on an old classic.

Seasonally appropriate outerwear is a must. Catherine rocks the Halloween-triathlete motif that’s making its way through Milan and Paris. Sara goes for a more conservative approach with the funky leggings, tutu and blazer. Try out one of these looks, and strangers will be constantly asking you, “Why are you wearing that?”

Sometimes a guy’s best accessory is a strong power point. Sometimes it’s a pair of bold argyle socks and pants that scream “No one picks out my clothing for me.”

Looking good doesn’t have to constrict your movement. An artistically baggy item, like a “children Halloween theme kangaroo pajamas”, or pants that could go over another pair of pants, can make for a great casual daytime outfit.   On Emma: Chicken Finger Thursday t-shirt ($0, from the woman dressed as a chicken outside Leo’s that one time), sweatpants ($39, high school)

How much leg is too much? As long as you have a pair of Spandex and/or a great attitude, it doesn’t matter.

It’s okay to be a loose cannon in terms of fashion choices. Maybe one day you want to wear a sweater and jeans. Maybe the next day you want to wear a businesswoman-ballerina-??? combination. It’s up to you.

In the timeless classic, “#SELFIE”, by the Chainsmokers, the song’s protagonist gives advice that applies both in the bathroom of a club and in the real world: “But first, let me take a selfie.” Hey, if you’re rocking a free tee and a gray-on-gray combo, why not? It’s a crime not to document how good you look.

Bulldogs are in this season. No other dog breed goes better with a sailing pinnie or a blorts (blazer-jorts) outfit.  On Jack: nothing, he’s a dog.

When getting dressed in the morning, make sure to ask yourself, “What can I wear that will make me stand out in a group?” Any of these outfits would be perfect for a job interview or for whatever the opposite of Where’s Waldo is.

In the world of fashion, confidence is everything. If you put on a polka-dot dress and cardigan, look at yourself and think, “This is a horrible outfit and I don’t feel comfortable in it,” then you’re in need of an ego boost. If you want to look good, you’d better feel good first.   Good looks: not for sale

Georgetown Day Fashion

Gtown Day Fashion
Georgetown Day is in three days. THREE DAYS. You know what that means. The perfect day to get out of class quickly, go outside and celebrate the day that every Hoya dreams of for the entire year. It is an undisputed fact that Georgetown Day is the best day of the year, and come Friday, we’ll all once again be reminded why. There’s sure to be plenty of alcoholic beverages, food and relaxation on the lawn.
In order to do this glorious day right, you have to look the part. That’s why 4E is here to walk you through the ideal Georgetown Day outfit.
Tank top — It doesn’t really matter what tank you’re wearing, but it’s mandatory. There are official Georgetown Day 2014 tanks available for purchase, but anything will work. There isn’t a more appropriate day than Georgetown Day for everyone to be outside maxin’ and relaxin’ in a tank. The bro-ier, the better!
Colored shorts — Another obvious must-have. My favorite (and as it turns out, 80% of Georgetown’s favorite) is Nantucket red; nothing screams Georgetown Day like being outside in a bro tank and some Nantuckets. Actually, regardless of what day it is, you will see pastel shorts — and shorts of all kinds (shoutout to jorts!) — reemerging with the coming of spring.
Flip-flops — I’m a firm believer in flip-flops over boat shoes when spring comes around, and Georgetown Day is no exception. I realize that I am at Georgetown, however, so I’m probably in the minority with this one. Either way, throw on a pair of flip-flops or boat shoes and you’re good to go.

Fanny packs — You will have to carry a lot of stuff around on Georgetown Day: your keys, emergency snacks, what’s left of your dignity. You could stuff your belongings in your pockets, or you could carry a fanny pack! Yeah, maybe they were uncool when your parents wore them around Disney World, but for Georgetown Day, you can get some that put the fun in functional. Check out the ones being sold by the Georgetown women’s rugby team in Red Square!
Well, that’s about all you need in order to have an awesome Georgetown Day. As of now, there’s an unfortunate prediction of some rain for Friday, but don’t let that put a damper on getting hyped for this long-awaited day. Rain or shine, throw on this outfit (and maybe an umbrella hat) and you can be a Georgetown Day hero.
