We’re all there…it’s that point in the semester where getting out of bed is the worst part of our day. While craving a few extra minutes in bed, thinking about what you can throw on faster, your oversize sweats and baseball cap or the leggings you’ve been wearing for the past two days?
Ditch the leggings Fashionistas, distressed denim is just as comfy and chic too!
With the weather going from chilly mornings to sunny and warm afternoons, you can never go wrong with a light faux leather jacket from Forever 21. If you’re looking for a more sturdy and long-lasting jacket, I would recommend a Levi’s jacket, although it may be out of a normal college student’s budget, researching prices and choosing sites such as Amazon, you can still get away with a bargain deal.
Walking from class to class on a Wednesday, a busy afternoon for this Fashion and Style Society Club officer, comfort is a top priority. You should never have to sacrifice your comfort to look stylish and this Fashionista confirms that! The black and white Nike sneakers are a great selection for the edgy yet futuristic touch, however, with casual denim you could wear any sneaker such as, a neutral pair of New Balances, basic white Converse (you know the ones I’m talking about), or my personal favorite, Sk8-Hi Vans in the color black. Regardless of your shoe preference if you have an overwhelming amount of walking to do on campus that day, think comfort!
Now on to my favorite piece of the look, the flared ripped denim. These bottoms bring the whole outfit together and give it a loud and rugged, “forget your basic skinny jeans” vibe. This Fashionista’s distressed pair of jeans is from the denim god, no one other than, Levi’s. Nonetheless if you’re looking for a pair of mom jeans, boyfriend jeans, or any other type rather than your average skinny jeans, try your local thrift store and don’t be afraid to DIY them to get that distressed or ripped look!
This outfit is finished off with two layering necklaces, which is one of my all-time favorite looks on anyone during any season. The choker is a thick metal, brassy statement piece that yet doesn’t distract from the rest of the outfit. It is layered with a long, thin-chained necklace with a small medallion that complements the white T-shirt.
Overall, this looked killed all of the cliche standards on “how to dress to class” or the mediocre “I don’t care what I look like for class.” If you want to give your outfit a little more time in the morning than others, that’s up to you, and only you. After writing and speaking to so many inspirational peers, you come to the realization that other people’s opinions should not dictate who you want to be and how you desire to express yourself.
So keep that head high Fashionistas and love yourself more than anyone else!
