Calling all fashion-forward folks! It’s almost fall, which means it’s time to freshen up your wardrobe. Wondering what trends are worth investing in, and what looks are worth replicating? We at the Clog put our well-accessorized heads together to create the definitive guide to fall fashion for UC Berkeley students. Work it, Bears!
Toe socks and flip flops
You’ve seen ‘stocks and socks, so it’s time to take it up a notch. Build off of this UC Berkeley trend by swapping normal socks for toe socks and Birkenstocks for the rubber flip-flops you wore in your dorm showers, and you will really amp up your fashion game! Now, this is one trend we at the Clog like to call classic with a twist.
Putting your shirt on backward
This is a cool new trend for the fall! We are certainly not promoting wearing your shirt backward just because some Cloggers have done it twice already this semester and don’t want to be embarrassed in lecture or anything. You should wear your shirt backward because it is cool and we said so!
DIY tank tops made during the heat wave
Over the Labor Day weekend, temperatures in Berkeley soared to over 100 degrees. Some desperate students, thinking that the Bay Area stayed consistently between 70 and 75 degrees, found themselves without summer gear. Cutting up old Cal gear or thrift-store finds into tank tops kept many Bears busy. Don’t let all that hard work go to waste! You can still rock the hacked-apart T-shirt on campus, so everyone will know you survived the great heat wave of 2017.
Fliers are having a major moment right now, as every single consulting club on campus (and there are a lot of them) attempts to promote itself. Go with the flow and pick up pieces of clothing with random Greek letters, photos of multicultural students laughing, flashy fonts and anything that screams “avoid me!” If you’re particularly crafty, collect the discarded fliers from Sproul and make your own outfit!
Just remember to make these styles your own, and have fun with it! We can’t wait to see you all rocking these fresh fall ‘fits!
