I can't say I've ever been to Toronto's annual Boobyball, but I know countless people who have and, from what I've heard, it's one fashionable night not to be missed. Especially this year's charity event, which is running with a varsity theme.
Set for Friday, October 18, with tickets on sale soon at boobyball.com, the 2013 soiree will attract the city’s best and brightest for a campus-crazed night. The toga-chic will sip Ivy League libations by Masters of mixology, alpha-beta-glam girls will be swarmed by pep-rally paparazzi and funky frat boys will get kooky on the dance floor. So Booby U will be like Animal House with a modern, sexy twist and one hot excuse to get your alma mater on in support of Rethink Breast Cancer.
Like I said, tickets will be on sale soon, but that doesn't mean it's too early to get a jump start on homework (yes, I was one of those kind of students) and plan your outfit! With that, I've curated a few varsity fashions and schoolgirl styles that are sure to put you at the top of the class and graduating with honours…
Canada Awards Jacket
A staple item at any Roots store, the Canada Awards Jacket is adorned with Canadian inspired patchwork embellishments.
$128 at Roots.com
Primark Varsity Dress
I didn't even know Primark was available at ASOS until I saw this dress! In case you're not familiar with the brand, it's a crazy cheap, budget store in the UK that sells fast fashion pieces like this for $10.70!
Over the Knee Socks
Because no back-to-school outfit is complete without a trusty pair of knee-highs!
$10 at Boohoo.com
Do you dare wear plaid? Maybe it's the look of a teacher's pet, but the mini-length of this skirt is sure to land you in detention. On sale for $49 at ClubMonaco.ca
Denim and leather oh my! This J.Crew sports-inspired jacket is a sure winner when paired with skinny jeans.
So TOMS may be the in-thing in run-around-town footwear right now, but I still own and love my Converse. It's a relationship that will never end and, if you haven't yet found your perfect match, you may want to check out these unisex high-tops.
$64.99 at Sears.ca
A good all occasion skirt can be dress up or down to suit your mood, while the waxed cotton keeps this flirty, flippy style all grown up, but also ready for play.
$128 from FrenchConnection.com
Varsity Stripe Cardigan
Finally, I love this thick and snuggly cardigan, which looks as though your jock boyfriend has lent it to you on a cool autumn night.
$59 from UrbanOutfitters.com
