You don’t need a whole new wardrobe to make a good first impression in this chapter of your life, but some new staple items can help you put your best foot forward– whether it’s stepping into a lecture, a frat party, the gym or the student bar. He’re some outfit inspo ideas for four different aspects of ~uni life~.
It can be tempting in college to live in cozy sweats, and although class isn’t the ~met gala~ it feels good to look good even if you’re just struggling to stay awake in a three hour poli sci lecture. Investing in good staple items like long-lasting Blundstones and quality denim can go a long way in looking put together. A nice fall coat can be thrown over anything and make you feel chic af with minimal effort. A lot of trendy students make the mistake of going down the shoulder bag road in the name of fashion. Save your shoulders, and get yourself a grown-up backpack that actually adds to your outfit.
It’s crucial when buying your uni night out clothes that you get pieces you can wear again and again (this is uni life, after all). Body suits are an easy fave and can be dressed up and down. Booties that can be tolerated for more than an hour can elevate any look- keep it simple- no one cares if you look great if you can’t stand. For the rest of your going out gear (skirt, jacket, purse) black is a smart choice that you can jazz up with colourful additions.
Just because we said you shouldn’t rock sweats every day, doesn’t mean you can’t create some comfier, lazy looks for days that you just can’t be bothered. Joggers are everything. They feel like sweats, but look like hybrid trousers, and they look great with comfy slides and cozy sweaters.
Working out in first year is hard. You can make it a bit easier on yourself by having at least one workout[fit] that makes you want to get your a** on a treadmill. If having cute work out stuff helps you to stay motivated, then you’ve got to treat yourself. You can justify getting yourself a fresh new pair of trainers… for your health.
