I (literally) woke up like this.
Sweats are the perfect – and probably the most essential – accessory for a girl to have at college. Wondering what to wear for Sunday morning brunch? Look no further than your favorite, and most trusty, pair of sweatpants. Curious about what to open presents in on Christmas morning? Grab your sweatpants, again.
You've got your mattress cover, your mini-fridge, your XL twin sheets, and lots of garbage bags, but there is a whole category of dorm room essentials you are skipping out on. DORMWEAR. Because, if you're like me, no matter how hard you try and fight the stereotypical college student walking round in pajamas and sweats thang, there are times you will break down
September is coming at us full force and for the first time in 15 years, it means absolutely nothing to me. Yup, as a jobless, broke, living on my parents' couch college graduate I'm not going back to school this year. It's weird. It's confusing. It's really, really sad. [She says as she sighs deeply and bites her quivering lip, crying into her empty planner.]
It’s that time of year again: time to start thinking about Back To School! The time when the dorm assignments flow in and you start mentally decorating your new room. When you start packing and having late-night Gchats with your friends about your first Welcome Week party. When you start searching Amazon for the cheapest books you can find and, more importantly, your go-to comfort pieces for the season.
Awww! He lent you his sweatshirt! It’s so comfy and cozy and it smells refreshingly like boy. It’s perfectly worn...
I'm getting to that point with my boyfriend that things are getting really comfortable. Since we live together I get to see him 24/7 which unfortunately means he sees me 24/7. AKA he sees me when I have no makeup, am in my sweats, and getting ready for bed. Honestly, there's really no mystery left.
America has more name brands than Law and Order reruns and while you may want to go unload your entire check at GAP or Abercrombie, you don't want to buy something that you thought was cute and unique and later have buyer's remorse when you see something identical for less.
When it comes to fashion, us college girls have standards to uphold. In the fall we must waltz into lecture in a pair of killer leather boots and a blazer. When winter hits, it’s our chance to show off all of our scarves and that cute button down pea coat. Then we enter spring, when mom ships us all of our jean skirts, sundresses and cute tanks.
While hoodies don't exactly have a rep for being fashionable, every girl has a few in her closet. They are pretty much THE staple in every college wardrobe since they are comfy, warm, and easily slip on over whatever you wore to bed last night. Even hardcore fashionistas have lazy days!
If there’s one thing we all know, it's that college is basically it’s own little universe. It's that beer-drinking, bar-hopping, Cliff Notes-reading, coffee-chugging "safe haven" between the comfort of your parent's home and that place everybody calls "the real world." And unfortunately, we all know that "real world" is much less exciting than MTV moguls would lead us to believe.
For those of us attending school in the north, fashion is often abandoned in order to stay, well, warm. I...
Put down the North Face. Seriously. That overly priced piece of fleece has been cramping styles of college chicks nationwide...
