LOCO FOR HOCO: What to Wear for your College Homecoming

Thursday, October 16, 2014


Hi guys!! I'm super excited for this weekend, as it's my school's (Queen's University) homecoming! I'm very lucky that my school has an awesome selection Varsity wear (as you can see above, Shima & I have our tricolour moments), and one of my fave parts of homecoming is putting together a super cute-yet-spirited outfit. But with everything in my closet being black, it's kind of hard for me to head straight into tam and coverall mode. 

For me, my go-to homecoming outfit usually consists of a pair of jean shorts, a fun pair of long socks in my school colours, and the signature Queen's rugby jersey.  I also find it fun to add scrunchies in my hair to make the look a little more preppy. When trying to have school spirit in your outfit, you don't always have to go ALL out, you can look just as cute and collegiate by using smaller school-coloured accessories, like headbands and scrunchies (check out the Radley bracelets in Tricolour outlet, they're so cute!). Here is a look I put together for HOCO:



And for all my fellow Queen's students still getting their homecoming outfits together, American Apparel Kingston is having a homecoming sale TODAY and TOMORROW! Take 15% off any purchase of 60 dollars or more! 

 The best part of getting tri-coloured basics is that you can wear them again even after the weekend is over, and AA is also an awesome place to get small finishing HOCO touches like knee high socks and scrunchies.

Let me know what you'll be sporting for HOCO in the comments! 

Love Always, Rachel
