I really hate to say this, but school is coming up very, very soon. For some of you, it has already started and for me it is next week. Of course, I am not looking forward to it at all, but a new year means that I’m still in the mindset that I can make the best out of this upcoming year. In this blog post, I’ll be giving my tips and advice on how I survive in school fashion wise. Although I barely make it by the end of the year, hopefully from this guide you guys can successfully maintain a cute style throughout the entire year without trying too hard or giving up and wearing sweats every day.
Love What You Wear
The biggest philosophy that I live by is that I always have to love what I put on my body. This is the rule that I live by all year long, even out of school, because I find it to be extremely effective. When I wear outfits that I love, I am the happiest. That sounds perhaps a bit weird or shallow, but if you think about it, what you wear is a part of self-expression and brings who you are out to the fullest. And when I am myself, I am the happiest. I’ve learned that every time I’ve worn something that isn’t at all put together, or something that I am doing purely from following school trends, I feel so out of place and uncomfortable. This ties into my next rule of never following trends just purely because everyone else is doing it.
Don’t Follow Trends You Don’t Like
Following trends is okay, if you are in love with the trend, but if you see all the girls in your school wearing something that isn’t something you would otherwise wear- don’t do it. I feel like I don’t really do this a lot anymore, but I know that in my previous experiences I have made many mistakes, purchasing things and dressing in a way that isn’t me at all, looking like just another girl from my school. To be honest, I do have occasional tendencies to cave in, yet I know now after repeatedly making the same wrong decisions and afterwards feeling very regretful- do not follow trends that you don’t like!!
Be Confident In What You Wear
Another very important piece of advice is to always feel confident in what you are wearing. You may see something totally wacky and love it, but you can either disregard what others think of it or you feel very subconscious while wearing it. Although you may have loved the piece, not everyone can have an immense amount of confidence all the time. It’s good to always feel confident, because confidence is the secret trick to pulling off clothes; however, sometimes clothes are the ones who provide confidence, so before you purchase or wear something to school make sure you feel good.
Put In Some Effort
Sometimes thinking about what you wear is good. Not necessarily spending all of your energy and time into planning your outfits, but maybe dedicating a bit of time each night. I learned that this tip allows me to be faster in the mornings, when I am already rushing my butt off. Although I know you probably think that sweats are the easiest uniform like outfit to just mindlessly toss on everyday, but when you allocate time to think about the next day’s outfit, it also helps take your mind off things in the evenings when you need a break from all the school work and stress.
I hope these quick tips helped you somewhat- whether they just reiterated something you already live by or if you gained something new. Good luck this year!! Because no matter how rough the year is, we’ll all survive.
