STYLE ADVICE: Saved by the Bell

This month we are going to talk about what to wear to class. I often find myself wearing a T-shirt and joggers to my classes. I have looked like I’ve rolled out of bed on too many occasions, and I know many other students have too. This Fashionisto, on the other hand, has found the perfect combination of comfortable and fashionable.

He is wearing a typical Kent State University T-shirt, like many college students do. But what he pairs this T-shirt with is what makes the outfit not like the rest. He layers the T-shirt with both a flannel and a jean jacket. He then pairs these items with a comfortable pair of trousers and high-tops. For an additional touch of style, this Fashionisto adds a colorful watch and two Kent State University pins to the outfit. On a side note, if you are wondering what a black squirrel pin has to do with Kent State, black squirrels are one of our mascots. You can find them running all over campus!

This look is perfect for going to class. It is often still chilly in the morning, so layering up rather than throwing on one heavy jacket is a great option. Also, the T-shirt adds a comfort level, and the trousers add a twist to the outfit. Putting this outfit together takes the same amount of effort as finding a pair of clean sweatpants, but you look more fashionable.

So, the next time you find yourself looking for a pair of sweatpants and a T-shirt, grab the T-shirt, but ditch the sweats. You would be amazed at how quickly you could make a fashionable outfit by layering, even with 15 minutes before class! Don’t forget any accessories either. Pins add personality to the outfit, and a watch is a nice touch of detail; plus it can help you get to class on time. It’s time to spice up your basic college T-shirt outfit.
