Heading off to college is undoubtedly one of the most exciting times in a young person’s life. For the first time, you have the chance to be independent, take fascinating courses of your choosing and get a totally fresh start with tons of new and interesting people. Considering all of that, it’s only natural to want to look your best! It’s of utmost importance to take advantage of the chance to express your inner-self through your selection of outfits. So, whether you’re hoping to make a brand new statement with your wardrobe, solidify your classic style or represent for your hometown, we’ve got some helpful suggestions on how to look good on campus.
Start the year right!
Most schools kick off Fall Semester between late August to mid-September, so your initial focus should be finding bright and breezy summer outfits. Maxi skirts and dresses continue to be a huge hit this season and present a variety of options, from pleats to side-slit, florals to monochrome. For a skirt, wear it with a plain tee for a simple and elegant look while a maxi dress just needs a chic belt to complete the ensemble. In either case, as always, shoes are key! Miz Mooz has an excellent array of choices from their Spring 2013 collection that will match well. Specifically, if you’re smaller in stature, a heel like the Miz Mooz Waltz is a great option to give you the added height to cope with the skirt length and to elongate your silhouette. If you’re taller, flats such as the Miz Mooz Bubbly work with a maxi skirt.
As you settle into the year, you’ll find your day-to-day outfits require the comfort and utility of getting through a hectic schedule of class, internships, study group meetups and more. But of course, that’s never a reason not to look good! As such, having a cool go-to pair of jeans and/or jean shorts is key and a pair of women’s high top sneakers to go with will keep you comfy and looking good! Hidden wedge sneakers, like the Miz Mooz Angie, are everywhere this year and provide a cutting edge style that you can also trek back-and-forth across campus in. Throw in a cute top in school colors from the bookstore to show your spirit and you’ll be set!
Make a statement!
Like we said, college is your time to take risks and shine. If you’re looking to mix things up and put a fashionable exclamation point on things, try out a pair of cowboy boots! For over a decade, Old Gringo has been handcrafting beautiful leather boots that pair perfectly with daisy dukes or a floral sundress. These boots were definitely made for walking too so you’re guaranteed to have optimal comfort as you dart from your dorm to the student union. Not to mention, a good pair of cowboy boots is a perennially good staple for any college party.
No matter how you decide to dress for college, remember that the most important part is to be true to yourself and wear it with confidence!
