Although precisely matching our Minnie Mouse themed outfits to the hot pink hue of our flashy backpacks is no longer a priority, there is no denying the hint of excitement the first day of classes can bring. Whether you have time to put together your look of choice or you prefer to throw something together at the spur of the moment, donning your best pieces might just make sitting through countless hours of lectures a little more bearable. While it is easy for us to follow in the footsteps of our lazy classmates (who seem to be in a passionate love affair with running shorts and baggy T-shirts), stick to your guns and wear what you love, for there is nothing that brightens up a Fashionista/o’s day more than a powerhouse of an outfit!
Thankfully, I spotted this Fashionista who proves sporting your best threads for an afternoon riddled with classes might just take the edge off. For warm autumn days on campus, take a few notes from this Fashioinista and test out the fool-proof combination of a fitted top and a high-waisted skirt. To spice things up, opt for a pleated skirt and an eye-catching blouse to create a cool blend of color and texture in the manner of this Fashionista. Rather than finishing the look off with the expected flip flops or Sperry boat shoes college students just can’t seem to get enough of, take a chance and sport the ever so popular cut-out boot (which is surprisingly suitable for nearly any season). With the final touch of a classic floppy hat, workout attire will surely be the last thing on your mind when dressing for class!
One Simple Change: For a fun night out with your best friends, hang up the hat and swap the boots out for a pair of ankle strap heels that can brave the dance floor.
