WHAT TO WEAR: Class

In the words of Tom Ford, “dressing well is a form of good manners.” This is especially important when considering what to wear to class. Your outfit is how you communicate to your peers and your professor who you are and how you see yourself. If you feel confident in what you’re wearing, you’ll be more confident in class, too. By dressing up for class, you’re doing yourself a huge favor and setting yourself up for success.

In the midst of a Chicago winter, however, it can sometimes be a challenge to decide what to wear to class. On one hand, you want to look stylish, but on the other hand, you need to dress appropriately for the weather. On top of that, the dreariness of the winter months can often feel uninspiring. This Fashionisto does a great job of wearing both functional and fashionable clothes to class every day. His go-to outfit includes a pair of Topman black skinny jeans, a chambray shirt, a cardigan sweater from Urban Outfitters, a Ralph Lauren plaid scarf and short black Hunter Boots. Although this look is for men, it can be easily recreated for women using all of the same elements.

One Simple Change: Not only is this outfit extremely comfortable and wearable for class on a cold, winter day, but it also translates well to other seasons by making simple changes. For example, by simply swapping out the water-resistant boots for some fashionable sneakers and removing the warm cardigan, this look is extremely wearable for a warm autumn day.
