For some of us, summer means going to the beach everyday and eating copious amounts of ice cream. For others, summer consists of long lectures and hundreds of pages of readings. Although the latter group may be struggling with homework, it does not mean that their style has to suffer as well!
If you’re taking summer classes, don’t worry because you are not alone. In fact, you should take this opportunity to show off to your classmates that you can get an A in the class as well as in style. This Fashionisto does just that. I like that his outfit is both classic and casual at the same time. His patterned button-down also happens to be short sleeved, which will help keep him cool during warm summer lectures. Buttoning the shirt all the way up gives the outfit a more put together look that will be advantageous if you have to speak with the professor or a teaching assistant.
To keep up with his clean-cut look, the Fashionisto pairs his shirt with some slim fit, knee-length shorts. These shorts are great because they are much dressier than your typical long cargo shorts. He finishes off the look with a pair of Converse and a cloth tote bag. The way he has chosen to accessorize makes his ensemble more casual and appropriate for class.
Next time you’re headed to class on a beautiful day, just think of this Fashionisto and remember to dress to impress! As it turns out, picking a killer outfit may even make your day listening to lectures a little less upsetting.
One Simple Change: Usually the best time to meet with the professor is before or after class. Try bringing a cardigan or light blazer with you to add a touch of professionalism to the outfit.
