You in DU: Urban Collegiate

3 Apr

I’ve always been inspired by vintage photographs from Ivy League campuses. Their effortless layering, mixture of prints and textures, and all around cool poise. I used these photos for inspiration for two Dredgers Union “urban collegiate” looks.

The ladies look is a layered, early spring style. Perfect for chilly mornings and sunny afternoons. Start with a good base, like the Shiloh Dress, it has a soft lining and fun skirt. Throw a lightweight flannel tunic on top. Our Dredgers Union Plaid Tunic is the perfect layering piece, and with pockets it’s also incredible practical!

Add a horizontal striped cardigan to mix up the prints, and add that effortless preppy look. Add easy accessories, like a necklace and clear frame sunglasses.

For the guys, I layered some crazy things together to get that easy going, college look. Start with a lightweight short in a fun color, like these RVCA shorts available in the store. Add a long-sleeved shirt, maybe even with a hood. Put a brightly colored plaid over it, this teal Dredgers Union Plaid Woven would work perfectly. Put a loosely tied silk necktie with it, because…why not?

Add a thick hooded sweater, chambray backpack, and geeky readers…and you are ready to go!

These are the final looks: Casual, and straight-off-campus cool!

red jeggings study

18 Mar
4 items found at Dredgers Union right now:
the floral Keds (again, I own and love)
the red and white stripe Parisian chic  top (just got in, likely will own!)
I took 2 of the items, the RED JEGGING & TUNIC, and paired them with items found both at DU and at other stores, to play around with options and directions one could take these two basic items…really, I was so inspired I believe I will do several ‘studies’ of these items.¬† It was a lot of fun playing on polyvore, and I guess it’s just yet another social media tool that I will lose years of my life to…
check back for more studies on the red pants!
