The excitement of being back at school and the desire to make good first impressions make dressing for the first month of school fun and exciting. After the first month however, the excitement fades, stress takes over and getting dressed up for class can feel like a big hassle. While you may not feel like making an effort to create outfits daily anymore, it’s still possible to look cute on the fly. This Fashionista had the perfect Monday morning look. By putting together a few key pieces she created a trendy and low-effort outfit to get through a long day of classes and homework.

The T-shirt dress has been extremely popular this summer and it’s easy to see why. A solid colored or simple striped dress is easy for anyone to pull off and can work for anyone’s personal style. This style of dress is great to beat the New Orleans heat, but can also easily transition into fall. Throw on a leather jacket, tights or boots when the temperature drops to make the outfit more appropriate for the season, with minimal effort.

T-shirt dresses can be dressed up or down depending on the look you’re going for and the accessories you add. This Fashionista chose metallic slip-on sandals and standout sunglasses to give the outfit a fun and edgier vibe. Both shoes and shades are fast and easy ways to take your simple outfit up a notch and show off your unique style. Try any of this year’s sunglasses styles whether you go for a hippie feel with round shades or cool polarized lenses.

One Simple Change: Have errands to run after class? Switch out your flat sandals for some neutral colored sneakers. Your feet will thank you after you’ve been running around all day.
