WHAT TO WEAR: Back To School

It’s that time of year again: time to awaken from your winter break slumber and jump into the spring semester. After such a wonderfully long break, it can be hard to get back into the groove again, whether it’s waking up for an 8 a.m. class, or even dressing up for the daily grind. Rolling out of bed and heading to class in your pajamas may sound tempting, but let’s make it our resolution to make an effort in the morning. Besides, when you look good, you feel good, no?

On the first day, you don’t want to look like a slob, but you also don’t want to intimidate your classmates with your Chanel backpack and Prada leather. Nailing the perfect first day outfit can be difficult, but this Fashionisto hits it right on the spot. His outfit is the perfect mix of classy and casual. His briefcase, crisp white button-down and navy oxfords make him look like a dapper, classy gentleman that both students and professors will respect. The gray ribbed sweater adds fashion and function, and keeps the button-down from looking stuffy. His striped scarf adds the perfect amount of color and blends nicely with the sweater. This stylish guy keeps his outfit from being too formal by throwing on a pair of perfectly fitted denim. The dressy elements, combined with casual jeans, make his look stylish and approachable.

Ladies and gents, let’s all take a cue from this Fashionisto and look sharp this semester. Mix dressier pieces with casual items for a match made in heaven.

One Simple Change: To make this look night-time ready, simply opt for a pair of dark-wash jeans.
