The beginning of the school year brings exciting opportunities, new classes and constant socialization. Unfortunately, most hectic schedules require early get-ups. In order to make your sunrise start bearable, to locate the nearest coffee shop in advance, get an adequate amount of beauty sleep and to prepare for the dreaded buzz of your 7 am alarm. Most importantly, choose your clothing wisely in the morning—a fresh new start has been given to your style by the new academic year.
As the sun starts to radiate, so should you. When you are feeling like it is too early to function, pull out the brightest and most cheerful outfits you own. Bold colors will uplift you (and the spirit of those around you) throughout the day. Take a look at this Fashionista—even though she may have preferred to sleep in, this sun-loving beauty decided to be a vision around campus. After facing the daunting task of ripping herself from her bed in the morning, she could have easily chosen to wear dull and gloomy colors. Instead she wears a vivid dress that is guaranteed to keep her smiling throughout the school day.
The colors of this Fashionista’s maxi dress have a warmth that is reminiscent of early morning sunshine. Because the summertime weather is still blessing most campuses with heat, students should give their oranges, pinks and reds one last “hoorah.” These striking colors will bounce off of tanned skin and will complement bright smiles.
This beaming gal kept her look casual by wearing Rainbow sandals. These simple, non-fuss shoes look are effortless to slip on. They give the outfit a beach look—Rainbow Sandals did, in fact, originate in Laguna Beach, California. They were designed to be sturdy and to not wear out. Comfortable and trustworthy sandals are the perfect everyday shoe for the beginning of classes.
This California native Fashionista also buckled a slim belt around her waist to give shape to her flowing dress. This dainty yet effective accessory gives this bohemian look a polished finish, and matches her leather sandals.
If the sunshine is exceptionally bright at your school, make sure to carry some sunglasses with you. Obviously opt for a stylish pair of shades—sunglasses are an accessory that should be both protective and trendy. If you are lucky enough to have tons of extra money from your summer job, splurge on a baroque pair of sunnies (like these Miu Miu cat-eyes!).
The next time you have an early class, don’t complain and prevent yourself from having a cheerful morning. Throw on the most color-saturated clothing you can find, slip on your favorite flip flops and don’t you dare forget your smile. If you exude enthusiasm through both your wardrobe and personality, you are sure to have a successful day.
