Super sweet Cusp Department Manager Rachel Michael knows exactly what SMU fashionistas crave in a boulevard look. The silk red Rory Beca top and snazzy navy earrings (similar here and here) feel very urban chic to me. But this is Texas after all, so I added cowboy boots (similar here) for a touch of southern charm.
Thankfully SMU’s school colors are so hot right now. Crimson red was splashed all over the runways. Such a rich color makes a great fun pop, don’t you think? Plus, the witty and adorable Rachel said it best herself: “Navy is the new neutral!”
How do you dress for the boulevard? Are you more of a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, or do you treat the boulevard like your very own runway?
If you’re not an SMU student, I’d love to hear about your fun fashion too! What’s the 4-1-1 on tailgating at other campuses?
Happy hump day everyone!
