This post is for all you college students out there! We all know the struggle of having to choose between getting yourself dressed and ready for class in the morning, or sleeping just a little bit longer. I admit most of the time I have just rolled out of bed, brushed my teeth and threw on some shorts and a T-shirt. This semester I’m going to attempt to look like I tried a little when I go to class. This doesn’t mean that you have to put on a dress and full makeup. You can make sweats and a T-shirt look fashionable if you do it right. In this post, I’ll be giving you examples of some looks that I think would make great causal class outfits. Check them out!
The Dressed Up T-Shirt
A great tip to easily dress up any casual look is to add a simple necklace. Long, thin chains, like in the picture above, work perfectly.
Big, Comfy Sweatshirt and Jeans
For those cold fall days, throw on a big sweatshirt over your stretchiest jeans. Not only is this look super comfortable, the jeans make it look more put together than leggings.
Old, Torn Up Shorts
Disclaimer: This look does not promote wearing tiny daisy dukes to class! Instead, get a pair of baggy, ripped up jeans shorts (that cover up your rear-end). These will replace your running shorts and make you instantly look more fashionable, without sacrificing comfort! Pair these with a baggy shirt, sweatshirt or sweater.
Sweats On Sweats
Sweats don’t have to make you look sloppy. A simple crewneck paired with some jogger sweatpants and tennis shoes can make for a chic athleisure look.
The Quirky Graphic Tee
When you’re tried and not in the mood to talk on your way to class, your graphic tee can say it all. Quirky sayings like “I’m not a morning person” or “I need coffee” are really appropriate for an early morning trek to campus.
Just like the big sweatshirt/jean combo, a big sweater/jean combo can look even more put together. Match this with a cute combat or chelsea boot.
Big Knit Cardigan
Lastly, something you can throw over anything, a big knit cardigan. You can pair this item with several looks that I’ve already described. The best part about this is that it’s not too heavy so it’s perfect for those days when it’s cold in the morning and then warm by the end of the day.
That’s it for casual campus outfits. Grab some of these looks before it’s time to go back to school!
