Who's wearing what on campus this fall? Halloween Edition

It’s decorative gourd season, my fellow students! The days are getting cold and the nights are getting colder. Fall means pies, crunchy leaves and pumpkin-flavored beverages. Despite what Buzzfeed says, liking pumpkin spice lattes does not make you basic — it just makes you human. For most college students, however, Halloween is the highlight of the season. It is a holiday where you can express your creativity and be someone else; it is a great opportunity to challenge yourself fashionably. Halloween is not an excuse to be offensive, and most students did a good job of keeping it appropriate.  I saw a lot of creative, witty costumes.
Now that Halloween is over, it is time to throw on those loose, lumpy, vintage sweaters (Goodwill has great ones). This part of the semester is like a Wednesday — you’re halfway to break, but it still seems so far away. Cozy up in your Birkenstocks with socks and ride it out to Turkey Day.

Diva Gattani, Sophomore. A fresh take on Dorothy — no longer from Kansas, but from NYC. Diva wore a gingham skirt and pigtails paired with a casual denim jacket and a white crop top to put a unique spin on this classic costume.
