Everyone is back on campus and classes are about to start this week. Some of us have created the perfect schedule; your classes don’t start until noon and you have nothing to do on Fridays. As much as I would love for that to be me, it’s not. I’ve spent hours trying to rearrange my schedule to let me sleep in. So far, I have had zero luck. I’m not a morning person—at all. Functioning, let alone trying to look presentable at 8 a.m. will require an extra shot of espresso and probably some superhuman powers. Even though it may be hard to even think of what to wear that early in the morning, it’s something that we all should strive to do. Wearing a pair of UGGs and yoga pants does not count as putting effort into an outfit. Just because we all want to go back to sleep during our morning classes doesn’t mean we should look like we just rolled out of the bed.
This Fashionista is a perfect example of how to look fashionable for an early class. Her outfit consists of three pieces—THREE. Many times other students tell me, “there’s no time to look cute and still get to class on time.” Wrong. I would bet someone a good amount of money that they couldn’t put on tight yoga pants faster than a maxi skirt like the one this Fashionista is wearing. It couldn’t be done. I am absolutely obsessed with the bright blue color of her skirt, as well as how she tied it up. It makes her ensemble look unique. Even if it is something as simple as a knot in a skirt, straying away from the normal collegiate class attire can definitely help you stand out on a large campus.
To complete her outfit she wears a fitted black T-shirt and a pair of black sneakers. Now how easy is that? Her outfit is simple, comfortable and she looks great! She proves that “less is more” when it comes to getting dressed for those early classes. Even if a cup of Starbucks is the only thing keeping this Fashionista awake, her outfit is not going to put anyone to sleep!
One Simple Change: Her sneakers are great for an 8 a.m. class. Swap the shoes for a pair of wedges and add a statement necklace to transform this outfit into something that can be worn to an internship.
