It’s that time again when classes are back in full swing, and everyone is trying to find their balance in an entirely new schedule from the last few months. Oftentimes, as a new semester starts, we find ourselves overwhelmed with a multitude of syllabi, stacks of books and the utmost important decision of what person will be the one we sit next to for the rest of the semester. Sometimes, it might even seem like all we can do is wait for the weekend and hope to make it through lectures with the right notes for that first test that’s already fast approaching. On top of all of that, when you wake up after a long night of studying all you want to do is get out of bed and go to your morning class in the same pajamas you slept in.

However, for all you Fashionistas and Fashionistos out there, you come across an internal conflict of wanting to wear your sweats, but still look fashionable at the same time. Sadly, socially accepted, stylish pajamas haven’t been invented yet, but I’m here to tell you that there is a way to find comfort and style in one outfit that’s classroom ready.

This Fashionista shows off her personal style with an outfit that tells everyone she’s ready for the day, but keeps her secret of comfort. To stay cozy while in class, she decided to choose a loose, everyday top like a long sleeve Piko top, and layer it with a vest to add style and contrast. Then, by adding distressed jeans and a pair of brown boots, she created the perfect casual, comfy look for class. Picking basic items like plain tops and jeans, and pairing them with accessories like vests and layered necklaces can turn any laid back outfit into a fashionable one in just minutes.

So, the next time you’re hearing your alarm clock and already planning how your sweats might make an appearance for the day, just remember that there’s a way to be comfortable while still looking stylish.

One Simple Change: Just got out of your last class and ready to go out with friends? Whether it’s hitting the town or just going out to eat at a fun, new restaurant, make a quick switch from boots to something with a wedge or a heel to spice up your outfit.
