The alarm clock rings. You get out of bed. Put clothes on. Go to class. Come home. Go to sleep. Wake up, and do it all over again.

Forget the idea of actually having to get up for class and sitting through a boring hour and a half long lecture, but do we also have to put effort into getting dressed for it too?

The endless struggle of all of our lives, especially us college kids, is waking up everyday and having to spend time picking out an outfit. We might not only feel bothered by the energy exerted on creating an outfit but the fact that our outfit might not even be noticed! Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on which way you chose to look at it, we are not in high school anymore. I came from a relatively large high school with 575 kids in my graduating class, and I knew just about everyone. I had the opportunity to show off my outfit every day because everyone was contained inside the walls of the school. Michigan is nothing like that. With about 30,000 undergraduate students wandering around a huge college campus, I am lucky if I see 20 people I know throughout the day.

With that being said, why shouldn’t we just throw on sweatpants and a sweatshirt? It is simple, easy and takes no time or creativity to choose from your closet. However, my mom told me something once, and I am now going to share it with all of you: always dress your best because you never know if you are going to bump into your worst enemy. I promise, the effort and energy will always be worth it.

This Fashionsita could run into anyone on her way to class and would have nothing to worry about. Her outfit is simple, yet she still manages to stand out from the rest of the crowd. Her leather jacket is cool and dresses up the outfit by just adding that extra touch to make her attract attention. Also, her plum jeans are different and original, which complement her charcoal shirt perfectly. The two colors are great for winter because of their cool colored nature. This outfit is easy to replicate; just pick any colored jeans and a solid colored shirt. You’re all set to go!

One Simple Change: Take this outfit from class to a fancy dinner with a few minor changes. Swap out the worker style winter boots for a pair of heals or knee-high boots. Then throw on a sparkly necklace, giving your outfit that extra wow-factor!
