Cal Day is here! Known for the crowds of uncorrupted children, annoyed parents, and wasted students, Cal Day is a fun opportunity to get creative while sporting our school colors. Read on for some festive outfit inspiration!
For my outfit, I tried my interpretation of the classic sratty skirt look. If you’re finding yourself short on festive colors, denim is a super easy way to incorporate blue into your outfit. I paired this white tennis skirt with a bright gold off-shoulder top, a blue jacket to stay warm (and protect the white skirt from stains), and platformed AF1’s. A big, chunky shoe lets you stomp your way through crowds pretty easily, and the leather material resists stains pretty well. If you don’t have any yellow items in your closet, I think white passes as a pretty Cal-related color. Finally, I added some delicate gold jewelry so I could enhance the gold theme and pretend to be more put together.
This jacket is from Bouquet + Head West Vintage Market, a biannual vintage fair which I highly recommend checking out if you’re in the Berkeley/Oakland area. The jewelry and shirt are from good ol’ Forever 21, the skirt is the classic tennis skirt from American Apparel, and the shoes are Nike Air Force 1 Jesters.
This Cal Day, I decided to switch up the ol’ outfit a bit with a chic, comfy pair of gray bike shorts (thank you Ross🙏) that still give the same effect as your usual tennis skirt or booty shorts! Top it off with a cut up graphic tee (that so happens to rep my school colors as well as my all-time favorite movie, Stand by Me!!). And finally, I finished the look off with my go-to Filas (I swear to god, white sneakers are the move for any look), my thrifted, baggy dark blue jean jacket to loosen up the outfit, and a little Cal gear to adorn the head!
Don’t forget to take care of yourself this Cal day, and go bears!!
