Did you hear that? Yup, that’s the sound of summer coming to a screeching halt. I know beginning another semester can be a drag, but you’re one step closer towards the finish line. Whether you dorm or commute to school, staying comfortable is a top priority. Here are my top five college essentials: weekly planner, canvas backpack, cool kicks, oversized flannels and highlighters.

Sprinting up escalators, sliding in between subway doors and waving down cabs to jet across town is a full-time job on its own. Many days, I am pounding the pavement to get to class and work on time, and my feet kill! Wearing sneakers literally helps support my hectic schedule. Trust me when I tell you invest in some cool kicks. My idea of cool kicks varies from a sleek black sneaker to electric green hues here and there. Just make sure they have some cushion for the pushin’. My favorite brands are Nike and adidas; adidas is currently in the league. The soles of adidas sneakers are heavenly; they feel like clouds on your feet. Both companies have a wide selection to choose from and you can even customize your own pair.

Today, I have a stylish look that can work for the ladies, too. He’s wearing a pair of adidas Ultra Boost sneakers in core black. The mixed details on these sneakers are pretty dope! He wore a collared grid shirt, which is a great alternative to a classic T-shirt. To complete the look he accessorized with a Supreme cap, Gem bracelet and inspirational band. This casual outfit can work for class, brunch, a party or movie date. I hope you find some inspiration from this look today. Stay RAD!
