Oh-kay, so if you didn’t know, I am an alumni of Tennessee State University (TSU). So, I am extra-excited about our homecoming week; the game, the reunion parties, the pep rally, and THE FASHION. TSU is good for an impromptu fashion show. Everyone, alumni and Nashville natives put their best outfits on and come to see (and be seen) by everyone. In addition, it is homecoming season all over America, whether you are in high school or college.
Now, ladies, there are going to be some major fashion violations at your homecoming event. Oh yes, the real big girl wearing the real little outfit, the old-school alumni still rocking his best outfit from 1992, the Greek alum rocking their paraphernalia too hard (down to the sneakers), and even the wanna be fashionista, wearing 6-inch stilettos to the football game. It’s a tragedy, and it makes my eyes hurt to see people looking un-fashionable, when they have so much potential.
Below are some examples of what to wear to the events that may occur at your homecoming week/end. Take note, the thing to remember is most events occur outside, so it is imperative to be prepared for the elements, while continuing to look FAB!
First up, some options for the pep-rally. The key is comfortable chic. Remember that one of the top shoe trends for 2008 is high-top sneakers; try finding a pair that shows your individual fashion sense. The pep rally is outside, usually lasts about 3-4 hours, and involves alot of walking. Save your feet for the party later that night. Put your stock in a high-end bag, cuz that’s what’s gonna make a statement when you take pics.
