Nine Split Second Styling Tips That Make A Major Impact

September 15th, 2016 at 2:00am

You’ve snoozed your alarm for the fourth (okay, fifth) time and you now have literally two seconds to get ready for your first class of the day. Instead of leaving a not-so-great impression this early in the semester by either being late or, even worse, wearing sweats, maximize the little time you do have to get ready by keeping it simple.

Some of the most powerful looks come down to simple styling choices. A tuck here; a well-placed accessory there and—boom—a super RAD outfit that looks like you didn’t just roll out of bed.

Try these split second styling tips before your next 8 a.m. to make sure you actually show up fashionably on time to class.
