We asked our campus ambassadors which pieces they couldn’t live without while juggling classes, clubs, sports and everything in between. As you enjoy the summer, here’s how to prepare your wardrobe to be campus ready. Mina, a recent graduate of Michigan State University in creative advertising and copywriting, lets us in on her top 3 picks.
THE HEAVYWEIGHT BOX IN LINCOLN
No matter what, the Heavyweight Box (especially in Lincoln) will always be my first recommendation for anyone in need of that perfect t-shirt for any event. This classic t-shirt is perfect to dress down with a pair of jeans and sneakers for a relaxed look. The box tee hits the perfect sport, right at the waist. To dress it up, I like to pair it with a simple skirt and sandals as the warm spring days approach, or throw on a leather jacket with black jeans to go out. The super soft cotton and fit of the Heavyweight Box is so versatile that it’s nearly impossible to have just one.
THE HEAVYWEIGHT LS
Although this long sleeve is considered a men’s cut, it’s definitely a closet must have no matter who you are. The super soft cotton is comfy enough to sleep in, while the tailored fit makes it perfect for everyday wear, even for girls. My brother swears by its foolproof design to always make him and his friends look good, no matter the occasion.
THE CAMPUS CREW
When I’m strolling through campus, whether it’s spring or fall, I love wearing my Campus Crew (and the name couldn’t be any more fitting!) The loose-fitting bottom allows you to add layers when the days get colder, keeping you even cozier. The Campus Crew is one of my top must haves for when you are going to class or just hanging around in your comfy clothes.
