Back to School Fashion Must Haves
It’s that time of the year again: Back to School. You’re probably thinking of what you need for the new school year, but have you given any thought to what you’ll wear? Clothes are more important than you think, especially if you’re heading to college. Think about it this way: you’re running around all day, getting from classes to the library to the gym. Is your outfit prepared to tackle this busy day? Here are my fashion must-haves for surviving the busy college life:
Comfortable, yet stylish shoes
College life can be hectic, especially in your first year. You’re getting used to living on your own, managing your own time and taking on responsibilities that used to fall on mom & dad. If you’re running around all day, consider wearing comfortable shoes. Sneakers would be my first choice: they offer sturdy support for your feet and look stylish too! I personally love the Mad Love Jaycie Knit Shoes. The knit material feels so comfortable on my skin and moves with me. It’s almost like a second skin.
Layer, layer, layer!
Depending on where you live, the weather can vary in the morning, afternoon and night. If you’re constantly on the move, you’ll need to dress for it too. In this instance, layering will help A LOT. Throw on a light jacket or cardigan, such as this Cocoon Cardigan, for the chilly mornings and a comfy tee underneath for the sunny afternoons.
Athleisurewear is your friend
Running from class to the gym or vice versa? Athleisurewear is a section you should keep in your closet. If you’re not familiar with athleisurewear, it is casual clothes that can be worn for both everyday wear and for the gym. You can run from the gym to class and your outfit would look like it fits in both places. I personally love A New Day Leggings, but you can find more athleisurewear items here.
