As a college student, the most important lesson to learn is balancing all of your activities. There are classes, homework, work, student groups and various other social obligations. The quad is the perfect area to kick it back and get some homework done in-between the chaos of all of those activities. Because the quad is an area that is highly trafficked, you want to look good, but at the same time have a functional outfit to be able to lie down on the grass if a table isn’t available.
This Fashionista is wearing a functional outfit that is perfect for class, as well as comfortable enough to lounge around on the quad for a few hours after. She is wearing a basic gray tank top with a pair of lightweight black shorts. The shorts feature a subtle lace trim, adding a touch of girliness to the ensemble. To top off the outfit, she threw on a chambray top, which is the perfect piece for the changing temperatures between the classroom and outside. Her cross-body bag adds a pop of color and is the perfect size to fit the essentials such as a student I.D., lip balm, a cell phone and keys.
One of my favorite trends right now would definitely be fashionable track pants. Not only are they super comfortable (I own way too many pairs), they are uber chic and will definitely draw compliments due to the dramatic effect that they add to a simple outfit. I am loving this pair by Halogen because of the edgy zipper detail. I also love this pair by Kiind Of. The faux leather would definitely help these stand out as the statement to your outfit.
One Simple Change: Switch out the shorts for a pair of dark wash skinny jeans and swipe a tinted lip balm across your lips for a night out with the girls.
