Deciding on an outfit to wear to class can sometimes be rather difficult and frustrating. As Fashionistas/os, our closets are jam-packed with clothes, shoes and accessories but we often seem to indicate that we have a lack of apparel to wear. Since we are in the summer season, the chosen outfit must be comfortable and appropriate for weather conditions outdoors and in the classroom. If you have selected a series of morning classes, it is a bit challenging to wake up early to have breakfast, much less finding the motivation to decide on an outfit to be worn throughout the day. Deciding on an outfit can be as simple as putting on your favorite pair of shorts, paired with a solid colored tank top and a neutral toned gladiator sandal, all of which are on trend this year.

This Fashionista is wearing a casual chic look, incorporating layers perfect for the transition between the Florida heat and the chilly classrooms. She is donning a Forever 21 solid cropped tank top (a wardrobe staple), a mustard light knit cardigan and a pair of American Eagle Outfitters frayed shorts. In order to successfully complete this classroom casual look, she added a pair of gladiator sandals and a striped backpack with leather detail.

A crop top is a closet essential for the summer; it guarantees comfort and is perfect when tackling warmer weather. Garments that offer a lighter fabric and loose fit provide an airy feeling to keep the body calm and cool.

Integrating an additional layer to an outfit that is also light in fabric and draped, such as a light knit cardigan or a kimono, is important when deciding on an outfit suitable for class. Often classrooms are extremely chilly and having this layer can be a lifesaver.

One Simple Change: If you would like to transform this Fashionista’s casual day look for a girl’s night out, add a drape leather jacket and a pair of your favorite heeled sandals to dress up the ensemble.
