Stuck in college mode

by Tyne Swedish
(Indianapolis, Indiana, USA)

Hello there!

I will be graduating college this May and I am stuck in a t-shirt and jean wardrobe. It is what I feel the most comfortable in both because it is comfortable and because I feel I am not feminine enough to pull off extremely girlie attire. Please help me out of my college rut!

Thank you

from really casual to classy
by: Lihn

I am making this change too. I have found that a simple stylish, black bag, some low heels, and a classy coat have really served to help me start this transition. How I feel about myself and others responses towrds me have also changed very positively. Being classy is all about looking tasteful, graceful, simple, clean, and having a beautiful attitude and spirit.
Its myth that to dress really casual is easier and faster. Or that you can't look good when you have a busy schedule. An elegant girl is ready in 30 minutes looking neat, polished, and lovely. There is no need to wear sweats and a hat everyday, student or not.
Study up on classic clothing. What makes a classy appearance. Which colors look best on you, what clothes flatter you, etc. Elegance fits well, looks good, and most importantly, makes the wearer feel good.
