College years for me were one of the most celebrated days. Not only was I fortunate enough to make great friends but I luckily also met my sweetheart through my best friend! Frankly there is nothing that I would like to change from those glorified years except maybe being a little more experimental when it came to my outfits. Now, I'm a Virgo and we seem to follow rules and all that. My alma mater appeared to have quite a few restrictions when it came to clothing: - no sleeveless, no short dresses or skirts and all that. And hence I reluctantly stuck to my basic jeans and blouses.

When I put together this outfit, I was aiming at creating a weekend appropriate look but I realized that this is essentially so college friendly. Not only is it super comfortable and modish, it also seems to get through all the restrictive barriers that a college might throw at you! The midi dress is super relaxed and the hue is perfect for this time of the year. I threw on a plaid sheer shirt to add a dose of print. And these burgundy sneakers from Forever21 fit in perfectly.

It’s always gratifying to break rules but it’s even more pleasurable to find your way around them. Unlike what I assumed, you don’t always require to show skin to look stylish. All you need are some basic, flattering pieces, that work around the regulations and tons of pieces to layer with. Another quick fix is accessorizing. Not only will it accentuate the ensemble further but it will also make it seem like you put in an effort even at 7 am! So next time you're wondering what to throw on, give this look a go!
