So i'm set to start uni in a few days and i was thinking (vainly, yes) about what kind of thing i should wear which lead me to try and do a 7 day uni wardrobe without completely changing every day, trying to use the sameitems in a few different days.
so Day 1 has the intention of looking professional, like the teenager you are, ready to work and practical. being a design student, image is kind of a big deal for me.
so the skirt is a little long, I'd trim it to JUST above the knee, it's different enough to atch the eye but not a total hall stoper, slightly old fashioned and if you want to change it up just a little let the shoulder straps hang down, give it a little more of a sunday i-could-care-less feel (it is uni) a simple white singlet, practical, cardigan is also practical but both not only make the skirt look that extra bit expensive and hipster slash girly but no one is going to peg you for a try hard either. the cute brown oxfords are closed toe and lacy, again kicking it old school in a totally practical and definately fashionable way.
never forget your backpack, simple, worn out brown means that it'll go with everything, no matter what month, style or mood your in. definately a smart, practical choice, get it big enough that it fits what you need but not so big you look like the unfortunate oldest child with the young first time mum who just brought everything and thinks you're going to need it ALL on your first day. jewellery is just an indulgence, it breaks up the cream and white of your cardigan against your singlet but if it gets in the way. . .ditch it.
finally keep your makeup SIMPLE. your hair tied back with those cute whispy bits that "always" escape and as you walk into your first class you'll look gorgeous, ready for action and not be sitting at the front anxious to ensure your hair still looks good from the back, sitting at the back comparing yourself to all the girls in their high heels, short shorts and tight/low cut tops. Instead you'll be comfortably in the middle (unless you like the back or front, no h8) not feeling dizzy, knowing you got enough attention for curiosity but not so much people want photos to compare the paint on your face and definately prepared to hit the ground running
