A new college year brings new academic challenges, but also calls for a wardrobe update. It’s time to leave all the summer clothes behind and go back to fabulous autumn pieces that will make us feel both comfortable and stylish. From trendy cardigans, through various tasteful denim pieces, you’ll certainly have a hard time picking just a few favourite items you’ll want to wear to college.
Denim all the way
A never-ending trend that looks fabulous on everybody and is particularly favourable among students is denim. From denim trousers, through skirts, overalls and gorgeous jackets, every single one of those pieces can completely transform a previously plain outfit. Match an embroidered denim jacket with an all-white dress for the perfect feminine ensemble. Add a pair of flats and a stylish bag to the combination, and you’re all set.
Kimonos and cardigans
When you need to dress up a simple white t-shirt and a pair of jeans, add a flowy kimono to the look. It’ll add a pop of colour and style to your previously monotonous combination. With a pair of sandals, you’ll look classy and ready for college. When the weather gets a bit chilly, consider swapping the light kimono with a comfy cardigan. Wear ankle boots instead of sandals, and throw on a stylish pendant necklace to complete the trendy outfit.
Autumn is all about warm and darker shades, which is why black goes perfectly with that season. What’s more, the alternative style could become particularly popular in the autumn, which would be a real treat for all the lovers of the gothic flair. This is a great time for you to go shopping for a unique gothic dress online and express yourself through this outlandish style. With black stockings and black ankle boots, all you’ll need is a cardigan to keep you warm in the chilly mornings or breezy evenings.
Use the first few weeks of September to enjoy your summer wardrobe a bit longer, and jump into a cute flower-patterned skirt. Match it with a pink t-shirt, or a chic blouse for a cute feminine look. With a trendy handbag and a pair of cream flats, you’ll look adorable and ready for the new college year. A denim jacket is a perfect addition for windy mornings, so feel free to throw it on for the ultimate back-to-college outfit.
A pair of jeans with a checked shirt and a pair of espadrilles is all you need for the perfect college outfit. Match the jewellery with the colour of the shirt, and fashion a colour-coordinated ensemble everyone will admire. If the weather isn’t suitable for espadrilles, you can always wear a pair of oxfords and make the outfit a bit more serious but still casual enough for college.
Comfortable and chic
Sometimes you just don’t have the time to think about which blouse goes with which pants, or how to match your favourite skirt with a new shirt, so the next best thing to do is wear a dress instead. This is especially easy in the autumn when you can match any boots with your favourite sweater dress, throw a leather or denim jacket over it, style up the outfit with a scarf and a fedora hat and you’ll be ready for your lectures.
Going back to college is both exciting and a bit stressful. Not only do you start worrying about all the new courses you’ll be taking, but you also have to think about choosing the perfect outfits. Luckily, with these suggestions, you won’t have trouble picking the next stylish ensemble that’ll make you feel comfortable and trendy at the same time.
