It’s almost the eight week mark of second semester and classes are starting to feel a little repetitive. It’s easy to wake up and throw on the same pair of leggings and zip-up sweater you have worn all winter long, but that’s part of the reason you’re so bored with the daily weekday routine. Why not spice up your typical class day by actually brainstorming a new outfit idea and dress cute to class? You don’t have to show your best dressed self just on the weekends or a girl’s night out.

I spotted this Fashionista in her cute yet casual class outfit while getting on the bus to go to study. I love the way she combined all over neutral shades with a pop of denim for a complete look. The incorporation of small details such as her rolled sleeves and lace-trimmed socks prove that style can be effortless. The maroon socks almost perfectly match the face of her Michael Kors watch. This adorable new sock trend has been becoming bigger and bigger. Try Charlotte Russe for a floral print or Topshop for a cool gingham print.

When trying to think of a new outfit, go back to your basics. Try pairing your plain pieces together in a way you haven’t tried before. A denim shirt like this Fashionista has here is one of the best items to have in your closet because you can create so many looks with just one shirt. Gap, the classic denim company, has an entire section dedicated to the iconic denim shirt. Check out this 1969 linen denim shirt.

One Simple Change: Swap out your leggings and tuck in your denim shirt to a colored skirt and black tights for a dressier look. You could even wear it to you class presentation.
