WHAT TO WEAR: Back to School

Back to school is an exciting and crazy time of the year. Seeing all the friends you haven’t seen in months, and settling back into the campus groove is always an interesting experience. Between trying to do schoolwork after barely writing for three months, and celebrating your newfound return with your friends all weekend (or week?), there’s barely enough time to pick out a decent outfit for classes. Although everyone’s happy to be back, no one is happy about having to wake up for an 8:00 a.m. Earth science lab. If you’re anything like me and you like your beauty rest, you sleep until the last possible second. This is a true struggle for some Fashionista/os. To look cute, or make it to class on time? That is the question. It may be hard, but some people just get it. This Fashionista has perfected this effortless back to school look.

When you’re walking around on campus all day sometimes you need to be comfortable. But that doesn’t mean that you need to sacrifice your personal style. This Fashionista is rocking this casual but chic look all around the streets of ‘Cuse. By spicing up a simple white T-Shirt with some bold stripes on the sleeves, you add a subtle detail to make your look more unique. Blue denim jeans are also a classic fashion staple in almost anyone’s wardrobe. This Fashionista is rocking a fitted pair with the bottoms cuffed for a little flair. Not to mention it makes her shoes more noticeable. The shoes (in my opinion) are the best part of any outfit. Why sacrifice style for comfort when you can have both? These white patent leather adidas are practical for jetting around campus but still perfectly trendy. By adding a personal touch, like this Fashionista’s tote bag, you can easily set yourself apart from the rest of the crowd. Finally, to top off this outfit, this Fashionista kept it simple with the accessories, and is sporting a small gold cross necklace—a great detail to add to keep the look feeling polished. Overall, it would seem that this Fashionista is ready for anything back to school will bring.

One Simple Change: Easily take this look up a notch for after class by piling on the accessories! By throwing on a bold statement necklace you could easily take this look to the next level for the weekend.
