First impressions are inevitable and highly important. What you choose to wear to class can be an immediate indication of who you are as a person and as a student. It can be tempting to throw on whatever catches your eye first, but it’s best to take a minute and think about what outfit will scream diligence. On the first day of classes, I wandered the Rose Hill campus and found this Fashionsita who uses her style to parade an organized and studious look.

This Fashionista’s outfit for class includes a light-wash, collared denim dress paired with a white leather handbag and stunning tortoise sunglasses. The collar and buttons on the dress suggest a studious look that says she means business. Her flirty sunglasses and fun handbag add her own personal flare to a classic look. Walking into class with this look immediately says tidy, smart, and ready to roll with the punches.

As the year carries on, it is tempting to slip back into the safety net of sweats and t-shirts. Nailing your first impression is important, but it is just as important to continue this studious, organized persona. A laid back day is perfectly acceptable now and again, but if you feel you want a quick outfit, turn to a dress. One article of clothing coupled with your favorite accessories, and you’re out the door! Dresses are the simplest way to avoid the lazy bug.

One Simple Change: Classes wrap up and your friends are ready to head out to dinner to celebrate your survival of a long day of classes. To make this look evening-ready, swap the sunglasses for some earrings and top it off with a beige leather cross-body.
