What goes with jorts? How to assemble a winning outfit for the Summer Camp party

Summer camp fashion icons.

At ease, campers: time for your uniform check. Our big party is tomorrow and it’s imperative you use our checklist to help make the most out of summer camp. Why? Because your outfit might afford you some free drinks and prizes  (good ones too)from the summer camp style council. We want to see your pasty legs. We want to see your badges of honor. We want to see you there, happy, drinking, and winning shit from our raffle. And most of all, we want to see your jorts.

If you’re still stuck for an outfit, our friends at Dusty Rose Vintage will be at the party selling counselor-approved shirts, shorts and accessories.

  • Jerseys of middlingly talented or hilarious basketball players. Always and forever.

  • I quite possibly don’t think I’ve been in such deep debate of what to wear to a party since prom. Head-to-toe neon? Denim? High-tops or chucks? Hippie or sporty look? Is this how the Spice Girls started their image?
    Anyways.. its awesome.
