As a college student, one way to describe myself is busy and on the go. Between getting the grades I want, having a social life, and having an internship, I stay doing something at all times. With a busy, on the go schedule, we lose the need for creating looks we feel great wearing. I know when I’m in a rush, I tend to throw on whatever I can grab first, not caring about what looks good or what I think is a good outfit. Usually an XL T-shirt and leggings will do the trick for me.
What we don’t realize is that creating a simple outfit is easy to do, and it doesn’t interrupt our on-the-go schedules. A fun, casual look only requires seconds of throwing together a few pieces, and then you’re ready for the day—no matter where it decides to take you.
First, what you’ll need is a nice, comfortable, and chic top. In the pictures, I’m wearing a pale pink velvet crop top. This shirt is perfect for any occasion. It feels good to wear, adds color to my outfit, and isn’t too casual dressy. It’s perfect for a picnic and day of exploring. You could also see a movie, grab coffee, or even go to the grocery in a top like this.
Next are some fun bottoms. Once again, comfort is key. In the pictures, I’m wearing boyfriend jeans. These are simple, but also make an outfit just a little bit cuter than a normal jean or jean shorts. I can wear these anywhere I need to go without looking like I’m trying hard, but still maintaining a sense of style.
The final step is shoes. As an on-the-go student, you don’t want to walk around in shoes that’ll hurt your feet and give you blisters, so this is where a simple sandal or slip-on shoe is perfect.
Having a few on-the-go outfits planned and in your closet will help you look your best at all times. These outfits are perfect for wherever life takes you! Post your on the go looks on Instagram and make sure to tag @Cfashionista when you do!
