It can often be hard to make that transition from the carefree days of summer to the long days on campus, but it doesn’t always mean you can’t still be comfy. Some students prefer to dress up for class, while others would rather just keep it casual. I always encourage students to go for whatever makes them feel great. My advice would be to curate a wardrobe that is versatile enough so that you can easily make each piece adjustable to different occasions—reliable basics that will last for a while are always the best.
I spotted this Fashionista on a gorgeous day, who pulled together a cool look that is perfect for those days when you just want to wear your comfiest clothes to class. Sitting all day in classrooms can be tough sometimes, and an outfit that keeps you constantly on edge can be the most annoying feeling. I like how she chose pieces that work well together for a day on campus, but can also be dressed up for after-class hours.
She paired a white, cropped T-shirt with an airy maxi skirt and an extra long cardigan for an outfit that just screams, “Go with the flow.” I love how she chose simple accessories that give it a bit of a retro feel, from her Converse high-tops to her black round sunglasses. Sneakers are a great for roaming around campus, especially if you have to commute. Cross-body bags are also perfect for the busy student because they can hold all your essentials while leaving your arms free to multitask.
One Simple Change: Switch the sneakers for heels or wedges and trade the cardigan for a blazer or more structured jacket for a day-to-night look.
