WHAT TO WEAR: Back to School

October 1st, 2015 at 2:00am

As we all know, that first few weeks of school are when everyone puts their best foot forward. This often means that everyone is on time to class and well prepared. However, the pencils aren’t the only ones that are sharp. The first few weeks of school are normally when we’ll see everyone putting the most effort into their look. Once midterm season rolls around, sweats are going to become every college student’s daily uniform. So let’s take a second to enjoy the trendsetters around campus before they’re buried knee deep in their work in the library. This particular Fashionista embodies trendsetter with her look.

This Fashionista’s look demonstrates where comfortable meets trendy. This look showcases the use of layers. By deciding to pair a simple heather gray draped sweater over a basic black bandeau top with a pair of eccentric print leggings, she demonstrates just how easily a simple look can be taken to the next level. With fall right around the corner, it is becoming easier to incorporate this trend of layering into your daily look. While it is very chic, this look is also very practical for the daily life of a college student who is running back and fourth between classes. Finally, this Fashionista ties the outfit together with a chic pair of penny loafers, which add a vintage feel to the look.

One Simple Change: Let’s say that you have successfully completed your first week of school without having a nervous breakdown from reading the syllabi from each of your classes. Now you are ready to enjoy your weekend with your friends. Simply exchange your penny loafers out for a pair of single strapped platform heels, and you are ready for a night out on the town. Just don’t turn up too much—you still have class on Monday morning.
