WHAT TO WEAR: Class

As the excitement surrounding a new semester wears off and the academic grind sets in, it may be hard to find yourself wanting to go to class in anything other than leggings. Finding your own uniform, whether it’s jeans and a T-shirt or a flirty skirt and sandals, can help cut down on the amount of time it takes you to get ready in the morning.

This Fashionista opted for a monochromatic outfit, tucking her simple black top into a pair of banded joggers. Joggers are a great uniform staple because they come in a variety of colors, prints and fabrics, not to mention they’re incredibly comfortable. When you’re spending most of your day sitting and taking notes, comfort is key.

Monochromatic is a great way to concoct an effortless outfit that looks a lot more complicated than it really is. Wearing an all-black outfit can also give your ensemble an extra air of dressiness. When working with a single color, it’s best to mix and match fabrics to keep the outfit interesting. This Fashionista adds pops of leather and metal, which stops the outfit from looking like a mess of black fabric.

Adding one pop of color really stands out, especially against an all-black outfit, making it easier to see the little details each article of clothing brings. The pale baby pink color and the clean cut of the blazer keep the outfit looking chic and put together. To keep the outfit from looking too fancy, you can throw on a pair of comfy black boots, perfect for stomping around campus in. So now you’re all set to show off your meticulously crafted outfit and wow your classmates.

One Simple Change: Let’s say you and your classmates have a presentation later in the day. Swap out the boots for a classic heel or black flat and you’ll be all set to ace that presentation.
