It seems as if on-campus Fashionistas are prioritizing comfort this semester, but that's not to say that sweatpants and sweatshirts are uniform. Thank goodness. I might transfer out if that was the case.
What I mean to say is that chunky knits and soft jersey fabric are present in almost every outfit. We've seen style icons like Rachel Bilson and Cara Delevingne wear oversized sweaters, so it's only natural that students running from class to class are taking the comfortable route as well.
In case you didn't read the above paragraphs, here's what you need to know: The comfortable route is okay, as long as that means layering knits over leggings or jeans. And no sweatpants — ever.

Major: Film and Television
CollegeFashionista: How do you describe your personal style?
Celia Hubbard: Laidback. But I like to take trendy risks once in a while.
CF: Who are your favorite designers?
CH: I really like smaller stores and boutiques. I work for J.Crew, so I like those. Things like Madewell. I like things without a label that can mix and you're not really sure where it's from.
CF: Has your style changed since coming to Boston from Los Angeles?
CH: I guess before I was a lot more beachy — a lot of braids and tie-dye stuff. I wore a lot of flowy stuff. I guess now I'm a little bit more preppy, but still have a good mix. I'm probably in the middle, with some nice East Coast influence.
How To: To get this cozy, go-to look, pair opaque black leggings (make sure they're not see-through when you bend over!) with an oversized polka-dot sweater. Accessorize with an infinity scarf and leather peep-toe flats. Keep a neutral eye and highlight your pucker with some red lipstick.
