WHAT TO WEAR: Basic Staple Items

As a college student who loves fashion, it is sometimes hard to dress exactly how you want when you are “balling on a budget” or you may have overslept and now have ten minutes to make it to class on the other side of campus. If you are having trouble with figuring out what to wear to class then take some inspiration from this Fashionisto’s look, because it’s a great demonstration of how to use basic staple items we all own to make a campus ready outfit. Not only is he looking fresh, but he is also comfortable throughout the day with his look.

This Fashionisto starts his look with a pair of tan vans, black skinny jeans, and a blue crewneck graphic sweatshirt. He added a thrifted vintage jacket, cat eye sunglasses, and a baseball cap to finish off his look—adding a touch of his own personal style to complete his look.The best thing about his look is how easy it is for us to recreate it and make it our own. You probably have a pair of lifestyle shoes, skinny jeans, a sweatshirt, sunglasses, and a baseball cap somewhere in your closet. Not only is this look easy to recreate and make your own, but takes about five minutes to put on for those days that you are running late but don’t want to look like a bum. This look also has a street-style vibe to it, so even though he was wearing this look around campus, it could also be great for being in the city with friends or any other activities you might want to do.

A tip I have for finding awesome staple items for your closet is thrifting! If you have never thrifted before, I highly recommend you try it. You can find so many staple items for your wardrobe and get your money’s worth! Next time you are having trouble deciding what to wear, look around your closet for staple items that you already own. You might end up finding the exact item that you didn’t even know would help you complete your look!
