Campus-chic inspires a capable kind of attitude

Words and Styling by ALISON EDMOND


Sorority style is the hit of the season — suitable for graduates of all kinds. Whether you choose Thom Browne’s spin on a varsity jacket or Prada’s turn on sporty whites, wear this look with cute socks tucked into your favorite shoes for a touch of schoolgirl sweetness, then add a Gucci backpack — for neatness. No homework necessary.
