We’ll be the first to admit we feel the need to dress to impress on the first day of class. Between the old friends, the new professors, and a dorm full of new neighbors, there are a lot of people judging our style. We’re forever on a budget, so a whole new wardrobe is pretty much out of the question, but with a few key pieces, it’s easy to create a few low-key looks that are perfect for your first day back (’cause a girl needs options, amirite?).
To make sure we look on trend without trying too hard, we’re leaning into PINK’s casual-cool pieces like the Rhinestone Bling Campus Short Sleeve Tee and the Perfect Anorak Full Zip to pair with our wardrobe favorites. Keep scrolling to shop the rest of the fashion girl–approved pieces we can’t get enough of this season and see how the College Fashionista community is styling them on the first day back.
“I’m obsessed with my PINK Campus Lace-Up Long Sleeve Tee—it’ll help me kick off my senior year in comfort and style. I’ll be pairing it with shorts and a tank top for the first day of class.” — Faith Cavage, Kutztown University of Pennsylvania class of 2019
“For my first-day look, I’m pairing my PINK Track Short with black chunky sneakers and the matching PINK Perfect Anorak Full-Zip to create an effortless look that has a cohesive color scheme without looking over-the-top.” — Niharika Chandrasekar, New York University class of 2021
“I’ll be styling some black leggings with a black sports bra and my PINK Sequin Bling Perfect Anorak Full-Zip. I’m pairing the look with the PINK Single Strap Slide to give it a little extra bling. The look is cute, easy, and definitely matchy-matchy (which I love to do with my sporty outfits). It’s the perfect comfy outfit to walk around campus in.” — Gianna Cifalde, Youngstown State University class of 2019
“I’m definitely going for comfort with my first-day outfit. I decided to pair my matching PINK Perfect Anorak Full-Zip and Track Short with a pair of chunky sneakers and sporty socks. I love tennis shoes with everything, so this added the perfect touch to my outfit to really showcase my style.” — Sydney Helphenstine, Marymount University class of 2019
“I can’t get enough of my PINK Ultimate High Waist Colorblock Leggings! They’re amazing to walk around campus in and stylish enough for me to wear out with friends after class. I’ll be pairing them with the PINK Rhinestone Bling Campus Short Sleeve Tee to add a touch of color. It’s a great low-key fit for my first day back on campus.” — Emily Soule, Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising class of 2020
