Wake up call, Fashionistas! The days of rolling out of bed and heading to the gym in your sweatpants and eighth grade drama club shirt are long gone. Going to the gym is similar to going out for a nice dinner… you want to look presentable. Even though you will be sweating off your mascara, why not do it in style, right?

This Fashionista has mastered the sporty but stylish look almost too well. First and foremost, show off your school spirit wherever you go! She proudly represents Kent State by wearing a long sleeve shirt that is kept warm with a vest from The North Face. It’s a good thing that I don’t own this item of clothing because I would be seen in it everyday. The versatility of the light gray color and the added style with the tiny white dots makes this garment a staple in anyone’s closet.

A pop of color adds life to an ensemble, and what better color to use than green? This Fashionista’s green baseball cap adds an element of freshness and reminds fellow students that spring has arrived! With spring, however, comes those April showers. This girl is prepared to fight whatever storm with her clear dome umbrella. The simplicity of the umbrella will never distract from any outfit this Fashionista pulls together. The dome umbrella is any Fashionista’s favorite accessory this time of year! You know what people say, “April showers bring May flowers.” Fashionistas, can we please take a minute to appreciate that the saturated green baseball cap matches the green grass? This makes me happy. Okay, let’s continue on with fashion!

Let’s not forget about her shoes. Sperry Top-Siders are a quick yet comfortable slip-on for class. These shoes can dress up an outfit, but in this Fashionista’s case they can also add a sporty aesthetic that blends perfectly with the rest of her outfit. Especially if you don’t want to be seen in your fashion classes with your sneakers, Sperry Top-Siders are the way to go.

One Simple Change:  Fall has arrived and a new school year has begun, so you’re hitting the gym to start off the year healthy! After finishing up your workout, slip into your stylish Nike Free gym shoes (you know, the ones that are meant for walking and looking cute, not vigorous activities), switch out that green cap with a Kent State hat and hit that football game for some tailgating! Forget that New Year’s resolution—a cute outfit is all you’ll need for motivation.
