August 16th, 2017 at 2:00am

Waking up for an 8 a.m. class is difficult enough, but dressing up for it is a daunting task that many college students usually ignore. So, when your OOTD is leggings and a sweatshirt, you can look to other aspects of your life to style: your laptop. Having your laptop represent your style is a major time saver in the morning, and who wouldn’t want to be able to accessorize with technology?

1—Pick a color scheme. The colors you choose to decorate your laptop will help organize your stickers and case when you actually go to buy them. Not having a plan before purchasing the accessories will often make your decorations look either too chaotic, or boring. For my laptop, I chose black and white for my main colors, with splashes of pink and blue to stand out.

2—Choose a case. The first step to styling your laptop to is to pick a case that represents you. Be sure to stick to something simple, since you will be covering it with stickers. My laptop has a black and white marble case, which leaves plenty of negative space to add stickers. Be sure to make sure you pick the correct size case to purchase for your laptop.

3—Choose some rad stickers. A person’s laptop stickers say a lot about them—their interests, hobbies, favorite TV shows, movies, where they’re from, and more interesting details. My laptop has my favorite band lyrics by The 1975. It also has the logo for my favorite movie, Clueless, and an Otto the Orange sticker to represent my school. Additionally, my laptop is equipped with a Delta Phi Epsilon sticker to showcase my sorority. There is a Kim Kardashian sticker and a SpongeBob Squarepants sticker to show my funny side. On top of that, there is a Wawa sticker to show that I’m from Philadelphia and a “shooketh” one to show my favorite funny phrase!

4—Rock your new laptop. Show up to that 8 a.m. on time bursting with confidence and style.
