The first collection for the November 2021 issue of Burda Style is a peek into the chic and brainy world of Ivy League trend setters! These styles are guaranteed to pass with flying colors.
Newcomer at Brown
Retro checked fabrics in cozy, warm shades are the thing to wear on campus. A stunning pattern, an asymmetrical tie, and wide cuffs are some of the wonderful features of this revamped shirt dress for a modern look that is sure to be a hit both inside and outside the classroom. And here is the go-to Ivy League garment! This checked jacket is an absolute beauty thanks to its faux leather sleeves, cool pockets, and sporty patch found at the back.
A Stroll Around Columbia
A bit more grown-up than a mini skirt but more casual than a dress. This frock with extra-large suspenders and full-length placket is a delight. And this casual pencil skirt with broad yoke at the back is yet another piece perfect for more petite women. If you want to show off more leg, just leave a button or two open.
Wander the Campus of Harvard
This sweater with standing collar and three-quarter-length sleeves is the ideal blend of a posh look with a comfortable cut. Its velvet fabric adds a unique touch. And not every model in fleece looks like sweatpants! These fabulous retro trousers are proof. The waist features a comfortable elastic band at the back and classic drawstrings at the front. This daring blend is sure to turn more than just a few heads!
Field Hockey at Princeton
What would you say to a sweatshirt and button-down duo? This look is lovely and casual, particularly as a result of the raglan sleeves and diamond patterned fabric that features a few cute patches! Whether you’re on the fields like in the photo or out on the town, you are sure to love this beautiful coat inspired by Vivienne Westwood featuring a large shawl color and optional tie.
Studying Law at Yale
A tie neck blouse paired with a sporty look? This surprising combo reveals its amazing outcome with this versatile model with a luxurious print and elastic waist. And what would Ivy League be without a great blazer? This model in modern fashion with checked pattern and exquisite details is a favorite! The unique lapels, double breasted buttons, and little slit in the back are fine elements for a quality piece.
All these models and many more can be found in the November 2021 issue of Burda Style, which can be found in shops or as PDF patterns on our website www.burdastyle.com.
