Favorite summer memory?
 “My favorite summer memory would be going to Phoenix, Ariz. for a dance workshop.”
Print-on-print will forever be on-trend in the fashion world. Try opting for totally unique pairings like this Aztec and  floral one. Flowing pieces are great for summer, especially in hot and sticky classrooms. Neutral sandals are perfect to slip on before you head out the door.
2nd (1) Clothes: Charotte Russe
Shoes: Nine West
Watch: Michael Kors
What are you most excited about for this semester?
“Everything. I’m excited to see if I dislike my major early on at least.”
Another comfortable piece to try is a maxi skirt. They are oftentimes very lightweight, which makes them perfect for hot weather. Ones with slits are not only fashionable, but can give you more coverage than a short miniskirt if they are not your style. It’s the best of both worlds! Since they are usually high waisted, try matching a patterned one with a crop top of one of the colors in the skirt.

What is your major and what class are you looking forward to most?
 “I’m undeclared and the class I’m looking forward to is acting because I’m ready to train and perfect my craft for the future.”
While sweatpants are sometimes referred to as the college uniform, they don’t have to be. However, no one said they can’t be fashionable. Joggers are perfect for lazier days and can really be dressed up, especially if they are neutral. Try going with all neutral colors, like this black and denim pairing. Not only is this easy to throw-on for rushed mornings, it also looks like you tried with fashion. These are all easy pieces to find so give it a shot!
 6thShirt: H&M
Pants: American Eagle
Suspenders: Hot Topic
Shoes: Converse
What are you looking forward to this semester?
 “I’m looking forward to my art classes because it’s class, but it’s super fun and creative and artistic.”
Pieces like bowties and suspenders are perfect for making a statement and standing out in a crowd. Try them with colored jeans and a collared shirt. It’s best to keep within one color scheme like this red and black look. Of course, put on some Converse to finish it off.
 3rd (1)Clothes: Forever 21
Rings: flea market
Shoes: Easy Pickin’s
Sunglasses: Ray Bans
What are you most excited about for this semester?
“I’m definitely excited to meet new people and immerse myself in the art scene. I also want to get involved in the LGBTQ Community.”
Shoes can also be a great statement piece in a look. In summer there are a lot of options for shoes because it’s a time where you can bare your legs and toes. These knee high gladiator sandals are perfect to pair with simple dresses or just cutoff shorts because they are super visible and unique. Before you think how annoying it’ll be buckle every buckle on the side, hear me when I say most of them have zippers in the back. Be sure to pick up a pair during end of summer sales as we head into fall!

 Jumpsuit: thrifted
Sunglasses: Forever 21
Shoes: TJ Maxx
 It’s Labor Day Weekend and campus is totally empty. How do you feel about going to a commuter school versus having a bunch of students around?
 “It is good because it’s so quiet, but it would be nice to see people and interact with them. So it gets boring, but the scenery is nice. I just wish there was more action.”
While rompers have been around for awhile, jumpsuits really made a comeback this season. These are other examples of quick outfits for when you’re in a rush or maybe you only have one class. Pair them with fun sandals or even just a pair of flip flops. They’ll be perfect even throughout next month with a denim jacket or cardigan thrown over as the weather gets chilly. Try having a basic color like black and then a few patterned ones on-hand.
