WHAT TO WEAR: Back to School

October 21st, 2015 at 2:00am

What do orange leaves, messy dorm rooms and way too much coffee all have in common? Well, they could easily be the starter pack for a really bad DIY project but they’re also great indicators that school is back in full swing. With midterms just around the corner and absolutely way too many school activities (hello Hullabaloo), this time of the year can both be super stressful and engaging.

Avoid looking (and feeling!) like a slob by taking a few deep breaths and ditching the sweats. We’ve all been victims of rolling out of bed and grabbing the first clothing items we see that could probably be presentable, but why not have a go-to uniform for those eh days? This Fashionisto is on a right track with a very basic and simple outfit that can be dressed up and down. He’s wearing a white and navy baseball T-shirt, dark denim pants, Nike Roshes with blue lining and a straw fedora. This ensemble is casual and relaxed but not messy and boring. The Roshes provide the much-needed comfort while walking between classes but also give a touch of color to the entire look. But what really tops off this entire look is the straw fedora. It acts as shade from the sun but also as a simple way to elevate an entire look.

One Simple Change: Need a break from all the back to school madness? Head to the beach and manipulate this winning combo to fit your weekend wear needs. Switch the dark denim with some khaki shorts and the sneakers with some flip flops. You’ll be ready for the cool breeze in no time.
