The first day of classes can always be exciting and stressful at the same time. You’re put in a new environment with new people and unknown experiences, which can sometimes be hard to prepare for. As much as we wish we could, we can no longer sleep until noon every day and you are now holding more responsibilities than deciding on the next summer beach trip. The last thing you need to worry about is what you are going to wear on that first day of class! Well, fear not Fashionista because this college girl has the solution.
With the weather still being in the high temperatures at the start of the year, breaking out your newest fall sweater isn’t always the best option when trying to make a good first impression. This Fashionista made her first day of classes outfit cute, comfy and practical.
Her outfit is a simple mint polyester top that is flowy and feminine. This is a better alternative to a boxy T-shirt that can hold in some unwanted sweat from the walk to and from class. She complemented her sheer top with a Tommy Hilfiger dark denim wash jean, cuffed at the ankles to show off her hot pink kate spade by Ked sneakers. The comfy shoes make the long walk around campus to your next class a smoother ride. Her chosen accessories are bold enough to make a statement but simple and classy at the same time. A taupe kate spade cross-body bag is the perfect pick for keeping your pens, pencils and cell-phone handy. She grabbed her matching Burberry watch, Tiffany bow necklace and a pearl-flowered stud and was ready to take on a new adventure.
The “first day” look doesn’t have to be too detailed or well thought out. Create your outfit like a blank canvas and paint on whatever you are feeling that day. This will make preparing for that 8:00 a.m. class and making a first impression a breeze.
One Simple Change: Although a solid pair of dark denim jeans sprinkles a bit of fall into this summery outfit, switch it up with a medium wash, ripped boyfriend jean. This will keep the same girly look while adding a grunge twist. Step into a heeled bootie and take the outfit from classy to a little bit sassy.
