It may be September here in Michigan, but it definitely doesn’t feel like the beginning of fall. With the temperatures still scorching, staying cool on campus is a major challenge. To make matters worse, on top of the unseasonably high temperatures, humidity is a killer. So, finding ways to stay cool all while not looking like you just stepped out of a steam shower are first priority. One ritual I’ve picked up since starting college is to check the weather before I get dressed every single morning. Knowing what kind of weather to dress for definitely makes any college kid’s life a whole lot easier. So, when you check the weather and it’s showing a major heat wave, prepare yourself and your wardrobe.
This Fashionista is a prime example of how to keep your look put together when battling that last bit of summer heat. Her jersey maxi skirt is simple, easy and styled perfectly with a simple knot, making it easier to trek across campus. A maxi skirt may seem a little daunting, especially for class, but this Fashionista makes it look easy. Paired with a simple black tank, this look is casual and easy, but still cute for class.
This Fashionista really brought it with her accessories. Her metal plated sandals give the look a little edge without being over the top. She is also rocking some major arm candy, stacking bracelets and a watch. Her necklace is definitely her best accessory. From far away it looks like a simple pendant, but upon closer inspection I found out that it was actually a turquoise and silver leaf. Pendant necklaces are a great way to turn up the volume on any look and take any style to the next level.
The first few weeks of the school year can be scorching, but that doesn’t mean you have to dress like you’re at the pool. Keeping your look easy, cool and put together can be done. This Fashionista shows that with the right staple pieces and killer accessories, any student can survive that last bit of summer heat.
One Simple Change: Her simple black tank is a great choice for class. Swap the tank for a rad vintage T-shirt and this look is perfect for a weekend concert with your friends.
