It’s that time of year when fresh-faced youths are heading back to college. And whether it’s your first year, final semester, or you’re simply seeking some academic stylespiration, everyone wants to leave a legacy on their campus of choice. From organizing your dorm room to sitting front row in Fall Trends 101, scroll below to see six A+ outfits for every collegiate occasion.
1. Move-In Day
We admit it—move-in day is tricky. You want to be comfortable while hauling boxes from your parents’ car, but also need to make a good first impression on your new roomies. Try a laid-back punk vibe for a casual, very cool look.
2. First Day of Class
Instill confidence in your professors and classmates with a polished, pulled-together outfit. The denim skirt says approachable while a crisp white blouse is respectable and teacher-friendly.
3. Saturday Night Fever
No weekend will ever be as fun as the ones spent during your college years. Whether you’re headed to a frat house or off-campus hotspot, an all-black look never fails.
4. Homecoming Game
Embrace team spirit with a trusty varsity jacket. Keep it easy with jeans and a pair of low-profile-but-seriously-chic kicks.
5. 8am Seminar
You’ve hit the snooze button one too many times and class starts in ten minutes. Toss everything into a leather tote, pull on a beanie, and slide into a pair of mules. Let’s be real: no one has the brainpower for tying shoes at this hour.
6. School Dance
Whether it’s fall formal or just another wild Friday night, dance ’til dawn in a drop-dead awesome metallic slip matched with studded platforms. You’ll be sure to attract all the right attention.
