    Wildcats: welcome back to a brand new school year! Back-to-school fashion varies year to year, and this season there are several new trends and styles in the Wildcat family. From v-necks to jumpers, this year is full of new ideas that will make your wardrobe scream Wildcat pride. Hit the UA Bookstore now and get some of these stylish looks that will help your fall fashion, as well as your game day wardrobe.


    For both men and women, v-neck shirts are back in style, and everyone can wear their Arizona gear with this touch. The v-neck trend is simple and chic, giving every guy the illusion of a more muscular torso and creating the ideal v-shaped upper body. The v-neck trend allows women to wear a comfortable t-shirt and show off their sternum without showing cleavage, keeping the look cute and flirty. V-necks work well with any outfit, and they’re perfect for the Arizona heat.

    Crop Top

    Crop tops are here, and they’re flirty, fun and easy to wear. Every woman in Arizona should have one crop top in her wardrobe, as it’s lightweight and matches every pair of shorts or jeans. Crop tops show a fair amount of skin, but they are ideal in the Arizona heat. With the weather changing on a daily basis during monsoon season, these shirts are perfect because they are simple and can be covered easily with a jacket. The trend is at its peak right now, so get these shirts while they are still in style.

    Sleeveless Tanks

    A very popular look for men that has been trending for more than two years now is the sleeveless tank top. These shirts make it acceptable for men to wear tank tops on a hot day while still looking presentable at school. The tank tops can be perfect for showing off those toned arms you spent all those hours earning at the gym. However, if you’re not the athletic type, these shirts might not be for you, because they may accentuate your lack of muscles. If this is your case, try looking at other options for shirts that may show off the best parts of your body.


    For women, rompers are a popular trend and have been in style for about a year. These pieces are like a shirt and shorts connected to each other, creating a complete outfit. There’s also little need to accessorize with rompers, because they start and finish a look. However, be careful, as these outfits only work with certain body types. If you’re curvy, rompers are probably not for you because they can hide your body shape and create a fuller figure. Slim or athletic body types fit well in rompers because the outfit createsthen illusion of a fuller bottom and a skinnier waist. These outfits are perfect for the heat and can be worn casually or dressed up with heels during a night out.

    Polo Shirts

    For boys who are not interested in the sleeveless tank top style or the v-neck look, polo shirts might be up your alley. These shirts are simple and show off the clean, stylish prep in you. Polos also make your shoulders look broader and can always be a great look for casual wear or semi-formal attire. Just consider which look would best suit your body.
