As the year progresses, rolling out of bed to make it to your 8:00 a.m. may seem utterly impossible. What may seem even more impossible is looking good for your 8:00 a.m.  lecture. But before you decide to throw on those sweatpants, I’ll let you in on a little secret—you can look chic and  be comfortable at the same time! The strategy is simple. To save time in the morning, lay out your outfit the night before, so you can savor those extra snooze minutes before your morning routine. You can also pair comfortable pieces, such as loose band tees, cotton shirts or trousers, with something a bit more dynamic. That way you can still have that comfort while looking like you stepped out of a magazine.

This Fashionisto is a perfect example of balancing comfort with chicness. His outfit is suitable for class or going to an internship. His accessories tie the outfit together making it a cohesive, clean ensemble. He paired a cotton polo shirt with some patterned tailored trousers. For a sleeker look he tucked in his shirt and added a black belt, which helps to add to the cohesiveness of his monochromatic outfit. This Fashionisto also sported black suede shoes and stylish black sunglasses to upgrade the simplicity of his outfit. Lastly, to keep warm during the chilly spring mornings simply throw on a soft button up cardigan and you are ready to tackle the day!

One Simple Change: Ditch the backpack, throw on a leather jacket and voila! You are ready to rock a night out in the city with your best pals.
