It’s finally here! The summer heat has come to an end and we have entered the school year.
For many college students, this means putting away the swimsuits and bringing the books back out. College is not only a place where students learn new things, but also where they find themselves and begin to discover their true identity. With that, many students express themselves through how they dress. So, here are some of the upcoming trends and tips for college students this year.
What to wear to class: You always want to be comfortable in class so you can learn without being distracted, but not too comfortable that you’re falling asleep during a lesson. A pair of jeans or leggings, some sneakers, and a t-shirt would be the perfect classroom look. Don’t forget a sweater or jacket in your bag just in case it gets cold in the classroom!
What to wear to a tailgate: Tailgate season is the best season! You definitely want to be wearing your school colors when your team takes on the field. For the girls, hand-painted jeans and jean shorts with the mascot on the back pockets are super in fashion. Even a cute cheerleader skirt would be perfect to show your school pride. Take any old school t-shirts and cut them to match your style! And you can’t forget about accessories. Wear some cute socks or face stickers to show your school spirit! For the guys, jerseys and sweatshirts are the way to go. Even guys can accessorize with a baseball or flat cap!
What to wear at night: Even at night, your outfit can be creative and trendy! Guys can never go wrong with a button down or polo with some nice jeans or khakis. As for the girls, a cute jean or leather skirt and top with some booties is great for a night out. You can even wear your hair in a fun ponytail or up-do to highlight your jewelry!
If you are planning on rushing a fraternity or sorority, don’t forget to pack a few snappy casual items as well.
Although what you wear helps express who you are, college is not just about what you wear to a party. It’s about finding yourself, making friends, and creating memories. Oh yeah, I forgot – it’s also about learning and getting a college degree!
So in this 2017-2018 school year, work hard, be safe, have fun and don’t forget to dress to impress!
