Here are three ways to wear the ever-essential blazer for back-to-school:
1. Coffee Shop Break: As tempting as it may be, I try not to wear sweatpants every time I study. Fortunately, denim shorts (or jeans) and a loose blouse are just as comfortable. When I need a little pick-me-up, I can toss on a blazer to dress up the look without much effort.
Big City Internship: You might get away with sweatshirts and slippers in the dorm - and maybe even to class (gasp) - but when it comes time to interview for an internship or work-study job, you'll need to make a good first impression. Enter the blazer, which lends sophistication to your favorite little black dress (you do own one, right?). Polished flats and stylish yet appropriate accessories will show your professionalism.
Off-Campus Party: They say the college years are some of the best years of your life, so make the most of your weekends by dressing up and having the courage to wear more daring outfits! Taking the occasional fashion risk doesn't have to cost a lot either: A blazer is the perfect complement to your favorite summer dresses.
