(Business) Casual

By Natalie Camrud

At Scripps College, day-to-day life for some students can switch from casually going to the pool to casually going to an internship. While the uniform for my on-campus job is just a purple t-shirt, some students have to dress more formally for their work opportunities. Depending on what you want to do with your life, you eventually might have to trade in those high-waisted shorts for a high-waisted pencil skirt. A pair of slacks and a blazer can transform you into an adult... Scary! For this issue’s fashion column, I chose to feature both ends of the fashion spectrum: casual and carefree, and sleek and sophisticated. Whether you’re going to the Motley or to a meeting, wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident.
