By now, or in the near future, many of us have or will have made our return to campus for the forthcoming school year. While the feeling of being back on school grounds after a few months away, it’s always an exciting and enjoyable feeling. Unfortunately, the back-to-school experience is also coupled with a great deal of hustle and bustle. Everything from picking up your room key to registering for classes to simply moving in can be a taxing experience that can easily take the process from sensational to stressful.
While all of the above are pretty much mandatory for a successful start to the term, there is no rule against taking a small breather in between to gather yourself before classes begin. A great way to relax is to spend some time out on the quad, and since there is plenty of time to lounge in sweatpants over the course of the next several months, go ahead and make a statement in your “quad-semble.” This week’s Fashionista shows how to do it right by rocking a crop top that packs a serious splash of color with bright tribal print designs under an equally as attention-grabbing patterned jacket. She brings it all together with a pair of light wash, high-waisted shorts, gold sneaker wedges and some stylish gold accessories to boot.
One Simple Change: All of the pieces that make up this outfit are bold and expressive in and of themselves; therefore, if you have a more reserved style or just are not comfortable sporting this look as a whole, an easy swap is to opt for a solid colored tank top or crop top. That way, you end up with a look that could even be worn for the first day of class. If you end up shedding the jacket, your shoes and jewelry will still make a statement. Plus, they may turn out to be conversation pieces that start you off with a new friend for the year.
