Say it ain’t so! Summer is almost over! That means getting ready for another year of new teachers, classes, and friends. Make sure you’re prepared by looking at these 5 back-to-school fashion mistakes and how to avoid them.
1. Super short dresses and skirts:
Short dresses and skirts on windy fall days do not mix. Even if the weather is still warm from summer, try to avoid wearing that mini dress, or be prepared to pull a Marilyn. Booty shorts are a definitely a must-have.
Walking all the way across campus in heels is a nightmare, especially when you’re in a hurry. Do yourself a favor and wear comfy shoes to class. Your feet will thank you.
3. Heavy makeup:
Nothing is worse than the feeling of melting foundation, and hot days at the beginning of the school year will test your makeup’s longevity. Go easy on the layers of foundation, and carry face powder in your bag for quick touch-ups before class.
4. Sweats and Pajamas:
Nothing says, “I woke up like this,” more than the just-rolled-out-of-bed look. Even if you’re in a hurry, those two extra minutes to throw on some jeans make all the difference. Grab a t-shirt and statement necklace for a quick, yet classic look. Don’t have time to do your hair? Bring along a hair tie to throw your hair into a chic messy bun. Save the sweatpants for finals week. No one will judge.
5. An actual backpack:
Leave the trusty JanSport at home freshmen. I know, I know, Jan got you through some tough times in high school, but:
