Yeah, more collegiate looks. It may be a style more commonly associated with Fall, but as my spring semester gets under way, it's still how I'm dressing every day. These pictures come from the Bard College Archives, and were taken in the '40s and '50s.
(Oh, I've the same ol' lament... why, oh why, don't college boys dress like this anymore?!)

Bard has a reputation for appealing to more artistic types, and that's reflected in the way these young women are dressed. Sometimes all those gorgeous Life pictures can be mildly discouraging, as many of those girls seem to be fair, willowy, natural beauties. I like how these gals seem a little more relaxed... not so immaculate, with glasses galore and nary a saddle shoe in sight. Notice all the jeans and sneakers; my oh my!
You can see more of the archives here. They go back to the 19th century and up 'til the 1980s, and are really worth a look if student (and faculty!) fashions interest you.
