Cynic Fit Check: Back to school edition

September 6, 2021

We all know the first week of school is a fashion show. Here’s what UVM students wore to bid summer farewell and greet fall.

“I literally ordered all of this online,” Wyman said. “My environment influences what I wear, the internet and the day-to-day people that I see. When I get bored of my stuff I go through my bestie’s closet to get inspired.”

Senior Liv Marshall 

“I got these shorts from a TJ Maxx but both these tops I got at the ReSource in Williston for one dollar each, that was my back-to-school shopping haul. I’d say my influence is every girl at UVM. It’s great to have everyone back on campus so I can get more inspired.”

Allison: “I’ve always loved cargo pants and I’ll always wear them, even in insane heat. I have several long sleeve shirts like this and a beanie to top it off. Nails add colors and the rings add to the black I think. I’m stealing the dark clothing thing from the e-boys.”

Adamson: “This is a lot of color for me, usually I gravitate towards black like him, but today I felt girly and playful. I feel like I’m an e-girl but laid-back. I incorporate a lot of 2014 grunge and 90s grunge, which are very distinct!”

“My style is casual. I go for over-sized stuff sometimes. It has a nice fit, it’s comfortable. I got this from Dick’s Sporting Goods and Forever 21.”

First-year Lindsey Muench 

“I have my purple blazers on — I really like color. The shirt I got thrifting and it’s super colorful and patterned. My earrings say ‘TPWK,’ which means, ‘treat people with kindness,’ a Harry Styles thing. They’re handmade and my friend gave them to me.”

First-year Shea Waters

“It was super hot earlier so I wanted to wear something that wouldn’t touch me. I wore this dress and the shirt is really thin. The dress is from a little boutique in my hometown in South Carolina. And I live on Athletic campus so of course, tennis shoes. My friend painted this tote bag for me, it’s a picture of my dog.”
