TWEED & KNITS
Erin M. | Fordham University

 

James sent us a #MacysCampusTour post last week:

"What’s that saying... “in like a Lion, out like a lamb"; clearly New York City hasn't heard that one, because it's still April and it does not feel like winter has left, or that it has any plans on leaving at all. Nevertheless, us New Yorkers don’t have time to complain, so we just bundle up and head out.

This week’s college student is battling the weather with a sturdy tweed jacket and a warm knitted sweater. When traveling to and from class comfort and warmth are of great importance. There is no worse way to start your day off then shivering the entire walk to class, especially when it is April.

Tweed and knitted pieces go very well together and create an outfit that looks straight from the Emerald Isle (n.b. Ireland, not N.C.). Until the cold can be slain, there is no other option than to suck it up, bundle up and get moving."

QUILTED
Molly | Fordham University

 

In the city that never sleeps, when we do wake up from those rare weekend slumbers, the first thing we want to do is brunch. Even if there was a momentary scare that our weekend morning traditions might be taken from our grasp, New Yorkers are always ready for those never ending brunches. The question that is always on our minds is "What to wear?"

Molly has put together a cute outfit fit for a brunch downtown. Whether it’s a ladies tea day on the town or a guys' brunch, New Yorkers always try to look their best.

She pairs a taupe quilted vest with leather accents, with a basic white oxford that is reminiscent of brunch at the country club. Pair that with a pair of dark washed jeans and flats, and you have the perfect outfit for a Sunday morning that might very well go into the evening. Spring. like fall, is a great time to layer up, as evenings can get quite chilly, and vests are great transitional pieces that can easily be taken off. We are fans of this XOXO Belted Ruffles Vest for Macy's; check out more spring style tips on #MacysCampusTour

PATTERNS, PURSES & PERSONALITY
Alessandra | Fordham University

 

Our NYC resident Campus Sartorialist, James Breen shares his ideas on putting together an outfit, as part of #MacysCampusTour: "The number one thing when putting an outfit together is to make sure its "You". Don’t wear clothes that you think you should; wear what you like, what flatters you, and what is fun."

This beautiful Sartorialist mixes textures and patterns perfectly. There are three big pillars of fashion, color, texture, and patterns. Mixing different combinations of these three can create some outstanding looks, like this one. She kept the color palette basic while she amped up the textures and patterns. The flowy VInce Camuto Perforated Faux Leather Panel top from Macy's adds texture through the alternating black and white pattern.

Texture is important and in this outfit its present everywhere, from the metals to the leather on the skirt and bag. Warmer skin tones, like Alessandra's, favor gold, and she chose to accessorize her outfit by wearing a large gold ring and and a Gold Tone engraved Heart Bracelet set by American Rag at Macy's

Have fun, mix textures and patterns and be sure to express yourself!
