As high school graduation nears, the big move to college is on every grad’s mind. Whether staying in your home state or moving cross country, college is all about challenging yourself, and coming into the unique person you are. Where to attend university is one of the biggest decisions one will ever have to make. Whether heading East, West, South or Midwest, it’s a huge transition, and it’s probably the first time you will live on your own, and be fully responsible for yourself.
Each college region in the United States has its own style and taste, and although one is encouraged to embrace her own uniqueness, it is also great to embrace the local culture. College style, for the most part, is laid back and comfortable. Lots of vintage and resale shopping comes with a college budget (which requires an embrace of creativity) and, of course, clothing in your school colors.
Although you will be wearing plenty of your new school’s logo gear, a college sweatshirt won’t always cut it. College fashion reflects the part of the country you end up and the type of people you surround yourself with. Follow below for a look at the different styles found in each major college region, but always remember, as you embark on your new adventure, to be true to yourself by staying uniquely you.
