When I first came to college, I had the idea that everyone would dress very comfortably for class. From what I heard from friends, girls wore big tee-shirts and athletic shorts every day. While that might be the case at some colleges, I quickly noticed that many students dress up for class- or at least look put together at Gettysburg. I think I pictured most students rolling out of bed and going to class in their pajama pants like I would see in movies. I appreciate how my peers dress at Gettysburg because I genuinely love putting together outfits. For me, having a great outfit on makes me feel confident and ready for my day. Of course, there are days where I wear leggings and sweatshirts to class, but even then I like to look somewhat put together. As students, we are constantly overtired, so when you’re not quite feeling it, it’s important to have comfortable clothes that you can pull on that are also trendy. Here are my tips for looking put together but still comfortable for class:
1. Choose comfy bottoms. Super tight jeans that you have to squeeze into isn’t fun sitting in class for hours. I wear a lot of leggings, and when I wear jeans they have to be comfortable and stretchy. I’ve realized that the “girlfriend” style of jeans are so comfortable!
