Since most of us don't know how to dress for class in the transition period between hot and cold weather, we thought we'd help you out. There are five spring outfit staples that you need in your class ensemble, and then you're set!
This spring, you'll be lookin' all cute without having to put in too much effort to your campus outfits.
As much as we all want to wear sweatpants every day, sometimes we need to mix it up.
Pro tip: Lay out your outfit the night before. This saves you time in the morning and we can guarantee you won't be late for class. We know the one reason you're always arriving late is because you can't decide what outfit to wear.
These spring outfit staples we have for you below will help in your quest to look cute every day for class, while minimizing the time it takes you to find an outfit.
Staple #1: Oversized Jean Jacket
Layering is key, people. Get yourself a cute jean jacket to layer over a tee or long sleeve shirt when you're walking to class. If you're feeling frisky, you can even try the denim-on-denim look that so many celebs have been going for recently. Channel your inner Kendall Jenner and rock it.
My favorite outfit to incorporate my oversized jean jacket into is with my suede skirt, striped or solid color v-neck tucked into the skirt, over-the-knee socks, and combat boots. This is a perfect look for going out with your sisters, or for a day exploring in your city. It is super trendy, but comfy and easy as well. You're welcome.
Or, if you're ballin' on a budget like me, visit Etsy and search for patches you can iron on yourself. You can find cacti patches, cute little donuts, roses, etc. This way, you can DIY it so that it's completely unique to you and your personality.
Staple #2: Fashion Backpack
Perfect for class, you can pair this with pretty much any outfit and have a fashionable place to store your books. These backpacks have become increasingly popular in the last couple of seasons, and are generally used as purses.
This style of backpack is usually made with leather, in all types of colors. Some are bigger than others, so if you want to use this to carry a book for class I would opt for a bigger style.
Staple #3: Cute Sneakers
"Athleisure" has been a trending style for some of 2016, and will be on point in 2017. The nice thing about this trend is that it's super comfy. Pair your cute new sneakers with leggings, a cozy off-the-shoulder athletic sweatshirt, and you'll be dressing like Gigi Hadid.
Another plus: walking on campus from class to class will be a breeze. Trust us when we say that you will be wearing these sneakers more often than you think you will (worth the splurge for Nike's, in our opinion).
Staple #4: Light Sweater
Let me just start by saying I am a HUGE fan of sweaters. Oversized, off-the-shoulder, sweater dresses; you name whatever style you want. I probably love it. A light sweater is perfect for the spring because it is very easy to layer, and you can easily tuck it into jeans to make your outfit come together a bit more.
Pair with a bomber jacket, a denim jacket, or even a leather jacket and you've got yourself a perfect outfit for school. You can easily take off a layer when you arrive to class, and showcase your cute sweater underneath.
Pro tip: Add in a statement necklace if the sweater is a solid color, and you'll be the trendiest girl in Bio 200.
My personal fave spring outfit is an off-the-shoulder sweater, like this one, jeans and some cute booties. The grey "cold shoulder" sweater shown above is a super cute style that I highly recommend. You won't get too hot in this style, which is especially important for you tardy peeps always running late to class.
Okay, I'll stop talking about sweaters now.
Staple #5: Joggers
Another product of the athleisure trend, joggers are a super comfy alternative to jeans or leggings. You can dress them up with heels, an cute fitted top, a bomber jacket and some jewelry.
To class, wear them with sneakers, a tee and possibly a jacket if it's cold. There are all sorts of jogger pants you can get, from ones you can wear to the gym to more trendy ones like the green pants shown in the photo above.
