WHAT TO WEAR: Early Class

What to Wear

Fashionistas and Fashionistos everywhere can all agree that picking out an outfit to wear for class is nothing shy of a difficult task. However, when your first class begins at 8 am, the task suddenly becomes much more challenging.

Every morning when I wake up I contemplate for at least 20 minutes what I am going to where for the day ahead of me. As I lay in bed and wish that I could hit the snooze button one last time, I think about everything that I have to do and everyone that I will possibly run into throughout the course of the day. I also take into consideration the temperature so that way I know that I will always be prepared.

While I am lucky enough to not start classes until a more feasible time, I do know that some Fashionistas and Fashionistos have much earlier classes, and that most of the time when these trendsetters leave their apartments or dorms in the morning they aren’t coming back until dinner, so they, even more so than most, have to carefully consider what they are going to wear for the day.

This Fashionista caught my eye one early morning when I was on my way to an appointment. When I asked her to describe her outfit to me, she chose the word “functional,” and I could not agree more. This outfit is both functional and trendy- two ideal descriptors for an outfit that was put together before 8 am.

Her liquid black leggings are what first caught my eye. They make the outfit more interesting, yet still are subtle enough to keep it pretty basic. Paired with a light purple knit sweater and a black tank underneath, this outfit is perfect for just about any list of activities that this Fashionista could possibly have in store for the day.

This Fashionista also uses accessories to keep her look personal. Her silver-studded combat boots are a favorite of mine, and I also love her white watch. Both of these items capture her personality.

So next time you have an early morning class and want to be comfy, follow in the lead of this Fashionista to put together a look that is not only comfortable, but trendy and functional as well.

One Simple Change: If this Fashionista were to be getting ready to go on a casual date with any lucky Fashionisto, she could swap out her leggings for a pair of jeans.
