It hasn’t quite hit me that I won’t be starting a new semester at Hofstra on Tuesday, but I am a little grateful to not be flying into a snowstorm! I am also super happy to not be on the floor of my room, stressed about what to pack for the spring semester. This got me thinking- what would I be wearing if I was still in school?
While my wardrobe mostly consists of casual clothes right now (aka leggings every day y’all), and will transition into more work-appropriate office attire, a lot of you are either already into spring semester or about to start! So, I rounded up a few outfits you can put together to stay cute all semester long!
This is pretty much my go-to outfit for class- sweater, jeans, comfy scarf, and ankle boots. A big chunky heel makes it comfy for walking around all day (remember, I was on a small campus!) but at the same time elevates your look a little bit (literally). I’m really loving blush/cream tones for spring, mostly thanks to Pantone. Fun fact: the school of communication at Hofstra was re-named for the Pantone founder and the building ended up getting covered in Pantone swatches.
If you’re into a little more strictly-prep look, here you go. I know this is a fall color palette, but I think it works for the chillier spring months.
If your go-to look is much more casual (looking at you, southern schools), then a big, comfy, colorful pullover is probably your best friend. On the few occasions where I would rock this kind of look, I like to at least make it match. It makes me feel more put together and less grungy.
For those chillier days when you’re itching to get out your spring colors but stuck trudging through snow in your Bean boots, try brighter colors that pop out of your outfit. Fun camp socks, a bright-colored button up under your sweater, or a colored scarf that makes the winter/spring mess just a little bit more bearable.
