WHAT TO WEAR: Killin' it in Class

As college students, most of you spend a vast portion of your time in class, at the library or “caffeinating” at the nearest coffee shop. Although studying isn’t the most glamorous way to spend your time, it is a great opportunity to show off your personal style and earn those A’s! Lectures, labs, recitations and meetings can be a little less painful if you’re sporting the right outfit. The perfect outfit for class is a combination of comfort and style. You don’t want to overdo it, but you don’t want to wear sweatpants everyday either. Finding a balance between these two extremes is key to creating the picture-perfect look to fit with your busy schedule.

This Fashionisto is rocking a look that appears comfortable, but also has a little flair of style. The black crewneck sweatshirt and tan khakis keep the look simple; while the plaid scarf, black watch and brown lace-up shoes give this outfit the perfect edge. The plaid portrays a studious vibe, the khakis create a hint of professionalism and the crewneck keeps the whole look casual. Bravo Fashionisto!

Follow the basics of this look and you are sure to find an outfit that will make you look great and feel productive. Your day-to-day routine doesn’t have to be drab. Grab a coffee, stroll to the library, write a paper or ace an exam in style! Waking up in the morning and putting on the perfect outfit could be all the motivation you need to breeze through your day with confidence and ease.

One Simple Change: Do you have a dinner date after class? For a more formal event, add a button-down dress shirt to replace the crewneck. This will create a more sophisticated and charming look that will be sure to land you the job, a second date or a 100 percent on your presentation.
