Throughout this week, the Cut explores college life, from politics and identity to parties, sex, and style.
For the final installment of college street style, the Cut sent UC, Santa Barbara, senior Claire Bredenoord to capture her classmates’ beach-bound skater style — which included fluorescent cotton sundresses, handmade anklets, and pro-weed socks. Some kept it casual in lattice bras paired with loose tank tops, while others wore distressed denim with flip-flops and clear jellies with socks. Some students dressed with a slight Western twinge, pairing tie-dye chambray and a fringe skirt with cowboy boots, or accessorizing with white feather earrings.
