Dorm Inspiration: Pink + Black

Main-Calllout-Fall-Catalog-Wanderlust-Dorm

This week we’re going inside everyone college girl’s favorite space: the dorm!

The task of decorating this small area and making it your own can be a daunting one. Luckily, SCOUT has your back – and we graduated summa cum laude in dorm décor. We’ve curated some of the greatest pops of color to make you the envy of your hall.

Not sure about you, but we’re not ready to study until our space is looking pretty. Poppin + SCOUT? A match made in organizational heaven.

A great towel is a non-negotiable item for the dorm because, last time we checked there was a shortage of claw-footed soaking tubs. We recommend these Lauren Home Wescott Towels.

The best part of SCOUT’s Hang-10 Bin is their smaller size allows for maximum versatility – keep your papers tidy, organize your makeup, keep your snacks out of plain sight – we could go on, but you’ve already added this to your cart.

A small space does not have to sacrifice style – we love the idea of this ottoman for your dorm. The nail-head trim adds a splash of sophistication.

Grecian Style: The One Shoulder Look

We love the one shoulder look inspired by toga wearing Greek goddesses. The breezy wear is perfect for this August heat no matter where your travels take you. We especially love to wear this style near the water, where the we can soak up some sun and feel the ocean air.

Grecian Influences: Layers

Travels to Greece gave us great insight into the Grecian influences on fashion. Layers are something we love and can attribute to the ancient Greeks.

The best part about layers is they can be dressed up or down. We decided to dress ours down and wear them to cafes in Greece. Layers are perfect for Greece’s outdoor culture centered around the sunny weather.

Right Off the Runway: Grecian Drapes

This week we are focusing on the season-less aspect of fall fashion. Grecian art and culture has been  a huge fashion influence for modern day styles due to the flattering drapery inspired by ancient grecian clothing. Simplicity and function were important for Greek men and women, partially because of the summer heat in Greece. Fabric, typically a light linen, was folded, pleated, and draped around the body to create a tunic like dress that was made to keep cool but look finished. Today, we associate drapery, tunics, and even peplums, which are derived from the Greek peplos or women’s tunics, with Greece and will forever be indebted to Greece for its immense influence on modern fashion.

Just because the Greeks wore drapes for comfort and simplicity doesn’t mean the style is limited to just that. These cocktail dresses are great for a gala or night out on town.
