College students tend to run late for their early morning classes due to waking up late either because they pressed the snooze button too many times or because they simply forgot to set their alarms.
When situations like these occur, students don’t have much time to think of what they’re going to wear.
“If I’m still tired in the morning when my alarm goes off, I tend to push the snooze button one too many times and start rushing to get ready to be out the door,” said CSUSB student Rebecca McKenzie.
Gym pants with a hoodie paired with running shoes is a fast and conveniently comfortable outfit to throw on when running late early in the morning.
“When I’m too tired to get dressed up or if I’m running late for my morning class in general, I usually throw on some yoga pants, a jersey, and a jacket paired with my Nike Free Runs,” said Carmen Reyes, a fourth year student at CSUSB.
Hoodies and crewnecks are very handy to have around this quarter.
Pairing your favorite hoodie or crewneck with a comfortable pair of jeans and boots will keep you warm in and out of the classroom.
“An easy outfit, in my opinion, would be some comfy jeans, a nice shirt, a cardigan, and some boots, flats, or Vans but if it’s too cold outside I’ll grab a hoodie and my comfy Roxy boots,” said McKenzie.
Black leggings or black jeans can help you look school ready as well, topped with a flannel or denim shirt, or simple T-shirt with a cardigan to match.
Military-styled jackets and boots can also be considered to be a must have this winter. They’re also very easy to put together with black jeans or leggings.
Beanies and hats are excellent time saver accessories and incredible for the winter. If you’re running late and don’t have enough time to style your hair, you can grab a beanie or hat to cover it up.
A nice collared shirt, jeans, and Vans paired with a favorite sports team hat will have students looking fresh. Although the outfit is very simple to put together, it can still be seen as fashionable.
“Simplicity goes a long way,” said Elmer Escobar, third year student at CSUSB. “I recommend jeans, Vans, with a clean black V-neck shirt, maybe even a Pro-club or Shaka T-shirt.”
Although style is important to some students, others are usually only seeking comfort clothes while looking through their closets early in the morning.
“When I first started coming here, I paid a lot of attention to what I was wearing to school. I was going for style but now three years in I don’t care what people think about me, so I dress for comfort,” said CSUSB student, Erik Lopez.
These simplified outfit ideas will surely have you feeling and looking relaxed during your everyday classes whether it’s comfort or style that you’re aiming for.
