How To Make Your Class Outfits Classier
With autumn approaching, a lot of women are headed back to school. It’s time to leave the lazy days of summer behind and hit the books. Personally, I’ve always been one of those people who are more focused when I’m in an environment that fosters that kind of productive mentality, and this includes my attire. When I look nice, I feel more confident and motivated. I jump right into discussions instead of slinking into a corner to hide. I don’t feel like I’m going to fall asleep during my 8 a.m. class, but am instead (most of the time) engrossed at the topic at hand. If you can get into that mindset in sweats, more power to you! For me though, I’m at my best when I feel put together. But it doesn’t have to take a lot of work! And it doesn’t have to take a lot of money, either. Here are three easy ways to transform your class outfits and make them feel more put together and school-appropriate!
The college hoodie is a staple in a university student’s wardrobe. However, you don’t always have to pair it with sweatpants or even jeans. A neutral skirt and tights or leggings is a great way to step up the hoodie look. Pair it with cute flats, or wellies if the weather calls for it!
Jeans, a top and a cardigan are an easy outfit to throw on in the morning. However, a quick accessory can take this outfit to the next level! A scarf can easily make an outfit feel more put together and more like an outfit.
Dressing down some of your fancier clothes is also an easy way to put together an easy outfit, as well as get more use out of your wardrobe. I love this dress, but it can feel a little dressy for an average school day. Throwing on a jean jacket and flats, however, completely transforms the dress while still making me feel cute and confident!
I hope you found these tips helpful! The easiest way to find ways to get more out of your closet is practice. If you have a free evening, play dress up! Go crazy! Put things together and figure out in what outfits you feel your best. Then, you’ll know how to rock your classes and your wardrobe.
