Let’s be honest, college is a pretty big deal, especially if you’re going into your freshman year with no idea what to expect, like I was. Getting dressed for class can be a lot more challenging than one would think. Even though lots of college students do it, you don’t want to go to class in your pajamas because you’re constantly meeting new friends and people who could be your professor one day. The best way to get dressed for class is striking a balance between professionalism and nonchalance. It’s also all about comfort since you don’t want to be stuck in your lecture halls for hours on end wearing an outfit that puts strain on your body.

One of the best parts of summer season is obviously all of the amazing outdoor things you can do! Even before beach weather rolls around, you can still have plenty of outdoor adventures where you will want to be comfortable but look stylish.

For this look, the Fashionista started off with a sporty, surplus-style printed black T-shirt tucked into this season’s baggy, ultra-comfy harem pants. To give the look more relaxed and arbitrary appealing, this Fashionista added a denim woven cotton bag. The drawstring cotton bag is a great alternative to a backpack or an oversized purse to carry your notebooks and computer to the class. If it’s still a bit chilly, bring along a slightly oversized denim jacket to throw on. A pair of black high platform oxfords shoes is also an essential fashion item for petite girls.

If you’re feeling a little lost on how to dress for your summer classes, take some inspiration from this Fashionista. The outfit to class can be both simple and chic!

One Simple Change: Once you get out of class, how about taking a short and relaxing vacation? Throw on a pair of sandals and your chic sunglasses, and you will still look fabulous while having a lot of fun.
