After over a year of opportunities to showcase outfits designated for school delegated solely to the torso and up via Zoom, many students on campus are pulling out all of the stops for what is, for some, their first hours spent in a classroom since March of 2020.

A&E took a stroll through the East Bank campus to check out some of the best outfits of the first week.

Statement colors

Fall fashion doesn’t have to be all burnt orange or maroon. Beyond the transitional period of late-August to early-September, there’s room for bright shades and bold pieces.

Third-year student Serafina Ganther has mastered the art of color. From the assortment of rainbow beads around her neck to her green checkered pants, Ganther’s got it down.

Sometimes, the key to a solid outfit lies in the accessories. Second-year student Mykaila Reynen stunts in brightly colored shades.

Knits

There’s an endless assortment of knitwear to be incorporated into your fall wardrobe — chunky sweaters, cardigans, vests, crochet tops and more. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to knitwear, which makes it an accessible trend to ease into.

Kate Prom and Gaby Kauls, both third-year students, went for sweater vests. While Prom kept it casual with denim shorts, Kauls’s monochrome outfit was a bit of a bolder choice.

Denim, denim and more denim

In an ever-changing trend cycle, there are some things that never go out of style. One of those looks that never loses its power is the subtle statement made by a solid piece of denim.

Jack Foley, third-year student, spent the day in a classic Canadian tuxedo. Second-year duo Luella Langlinais and Kathleen Zhang chose bold jeans but amplified the look with a pop of green on top.
