5 Ways to Look Put Together, Even on your Bummy-ist Days

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Scranton chapter.

If you’re like me, you tend to dress quite bummy (but comfortable!) during the colder seasons. Lately, I’ve been wearing sweatpants and sweaters almost every day, and while my outfit isn’t the most put together, I’ve been using these 5 tips on how to make myself look like I tried on my look….(even if I didn’t.) 

Wear False Lashes

This is something I do every day, regardless of my outfit. Wearing lashes with no makeup makes you look and feel like a baddie and is so easy to do. 

Gold Jewelry 

Something about gold hoops and rings while wearing a chill, lazy outfit just makes you look so comfy-casual. Accentuating with jewelry, especially gold jewelry, is the key to looking put together (when you’re really not!) 

Cute Lounge Set 

This one is a no-brainer! Having a cute and comfy matching lounge set is everything, especially during the coming cold winter months. Forever 21, Shein, and FashionNova are great and cheap places to shop for these cute sets! 

Shoulder Bag 

These are a huge fall fashion trend right now — and for a good reason! Shoulder bags are so cute and casual. They are also a great addition to a bummy outfit when going somewhere other than class! 

 Sweet perfume

This is something I live by. There are so many options for sweet body mists that you could find at TJ Maxx, Victoria’s Secret, Bath and Body Works, etc. that really tie in your whole look. Wearing a sweet-smelling perfume while wearing a cozy lounge set is perfect for fall.
