Hands up if this happened to you. At the end of a long semester, UGGs became a daily occurrence, your hair resembled Oscar The Grouch and pajama pants were incorporated into your wardrobe. We’ve all been there; the point when you’ve showed up to class literally wearing what you fell asleep in. Luckily, a new semester has rolled around and there’s no better time to revamp your class style.
Pay attention, this is a crash course in Back to School Style 101. I’ve enlisted the help of an amazing Fashionista to show us how easy it is to master.
Step 1: Find your niche. Think of what inspires you and draws your attention. If you could dress in anything what would it be? This Fashionista is obsessed with the ’70s and loves big hats and even bigger heels.
Step 2: Take your look from runway ready to the classroom. As much as we’d all love to rock an Oscar de la Renta gown for class, it wouldn’t be that practical. Instead, if you love all things ruffles and pearly, why not try a cute skirt and a tailored blazer with elegant accessories. It still screams de la Renta, but won’t shock your classmates.
Step 3: Don’t be afraid to take a risk. The great thing about going to University is you have the freedom to dress however you like! Take advantage of that and if something doesn’t work for you, just change it up. This Fashionista shows no fear in her heeled booties and neon felt hat. Sure, the more daring you are the more looks you’ll get (but who doesn’t love the attention).
This semester, go bold. You never know, the more stylish you dress in class, the better chance you have of grabbing the attention of that cute guy who sits across from you.
One Simple Change: If you feel you can only step before you jump, don’t stress. Instead of putting together this Fashionista’s head to toe look, just incorporate smaller elements of it. Swap the thigh high socks for a pair of skinny jeans. You’ll be able to keep the feel of the ’70s with the hat and shoes without jumping into the whole look.
