10 Outfits Every College Girl Wears To Class At Least Once

You can thank me later.

It's happened on more than one occasion.

The occasion of being called out more than once for dressing down for class and by "down" I mean some of the haters we hate to love claiming that they can't see the shorts we're wearing under the oversized band tee on our way to class.

Contrary to popular belief, yes I'm not oblivious to how my choice of outfits for class tends to shift on the more comfortable side and yes, I am aware that it looks like I'm not wearing pants, I like it that way.

Every girl in college wears what they feel is comfortable enough to wear in a 2-hour lecture and these are my ideas of comfort.

1. The infamous oversized tee with Nike shorts.

I'll say it right now, I have a variety of assorted Soffee and Nike shorts that I pair with almost every oversized tee I own and it's my go-to for those 8 AM math lectures.

2. Oversized tee with leggings and riding boots.

Once the first red, yellow and orange leaf is found on campus grounds, you know you're about to see a swarm of college girls, like me, sporting riding boots in every shade of brown. Jeans optional.

3. Oversized tee with leggings and rain boots.

Once the first rainfall hits campus, you better believe you'll see this same 'fit paired with Hunter boots in almost every color.

4. The "I'm going to the gym right after class, I SWEAR" look.

Whether or not I have plans to go to the gym after class or not, I'm probably in my gym gear 4 times of the week and I'm not ashamed by it.

5. Jeans.

I've always had a hate/hate relationship with wearing jeans when I absolutely do not have to and here's why: they make my derriere completely disappear. When (and if) you catch me wearing jeans in lecture hall it's probably because someone paid me a large sum of money to do so.

6. Your boyfriend's flannel paired with... you guessed it, your favorite pair of leggings.

This is probably one of the many flannels I've stolen from my boyfriend and certainly not the last one. Paired with another favorite standard black leggings, you can't go wrong with this outfit to snooze in.

7. The baseball hat and quarter zip ensemble.

One of my all times favorites, you can't go wrong with a zipper up 3x too big for your body and a baseball hat you honestly forgot where you got it from. We also can't forget our infamous black leggings.

8. Your "walk of shame" outfit.

Now, this doesn't mean you roll up to Intro to Psychology wearing what you wore to the lacrosse mixer the night before, no. This is more of the outfit you so quickly had to throw on in a span of two minutes because you left so and so's apartment downtown an hour too late.

9. A v-neck.

Another one of my favorites.

10. Dresses (or anything even relatively formal).

Disclaimer: I personally would never come to class wearing this but gigantic kudos to cute a** girls that do decide to wear this because you look good.

Ladies, You Don't Need To Wear Makeup Every Day

We know you didn't "wake up like this."


For as long as I can remember, the first thing I'd do in the morning is brush my teeth and sit down to begin the long process of doing my daily makeup. I looked forward to creating a new look every day and I thought of it as a form of art in some way. I thought makeup was creative, but also somewhat beneficial towards my appearance. Somewhere along the lines, I stopped looking forward to this long, never-ending process. Wake up, do makeup, remove makeup, sleep, repeat. It was getting tiresome, and I noticed I had begun to despise looking at myself without makeup. I wouldn't even go out in public without my foundation, my mascara and my eyebrows filled in.

Maybe I can thank my eight a.m.'s for this realization, or maybe I just knew I was better than that. Either way, I suddenly stopped applying foundation to my face the second the sun rose every morning. My skin immediately was clearer than ever before, no odd texture or acne scars. My face needed a breather and this was obvious after the remarkable results I had, not even a week after stopping.

I was concerned that people had noticed a change in my appearance, did they think I looked stupid? But no one ever noticed a thing, it was all in my head. Putting on makeup may have enhanced my look to some extent, but clearly, life would still be the same if I didn't wear it. Surprisingly, most people admire a natural look every once in a while.

My dad was the only one who ever criticized my decision to wear makeup every day. He would say things like, "You don't need all that makeup, you're pretty without it." And I never believed him because the only face I knew was the one I had gotten so used to.

Today, I woke up, filled my brows in a little and put on some mascara, and that's it. I rarely ever put foundation on anymore, unless I'm going out and want to look super glam. It's not worth the extra hour of my morning to put on something that I'm just going to take off at the end of the day. Not to mention, makeup is pricey, therefore, I'd rather save it for special occasions. I'm fully comfortable in my own skin now. I've become used to my natural appearance in the mirror and I love it.

Girls, you DON'T need to wear makeup every day. Start loving what you look like without it, and it'll be all-the-more exciting to put it on for parties, weddings, and other special occasions. Save an extra buck or two, as well, since going through a pack of Falsies every week isn't cheap at all. Ah, the good old days.
