The time that most students were fearing is here: schools have started allowing students to attend classes in person again. Students will now have to quit their pajamas, wake up early, get dressed, and reach school on time rather than waking up five minutes before the class starts. However, if it is any compensation, uniforms aren’t mandatory this time around. Schools are letting students wear an outfit of their choice, as long as it is appropriate. While this is very exciting, it can also be tiring picking out a new piece of clothing every day. But don’t fear because this article will help you be a fashionable school-going student. Here are five ways you can be stylish while attending school:
Prioritize comfort over fashion – Ignoring comfort over fashion is a mistake most fashion rookies make. As a school student, you are usually proactive and run around quite often. An outfit that is not comfortable or restrains your movement will not allow you to be active and enjoy your school days. An Important aspect of comfort in fashion is footwear. Always wear footwear that you are comfortable wearing for long periods. Uncomfortable footwear can negatively impact your mood and give you blisters, and we don’t want that, do we?
Be true to yourself – Have you ever been pressured by your peers to wear something you don’t like? If so, reflect and remember how that made you feel. I bet it didn’t feel good wearing something you don’t like. That is because when you wear something you don’t like, it can affect your confidence. Wearing an outfit that you don’t typically like but are wearing because it is trendy will reduce your self-confidence and prohibit you from exploring your style. Every individual has a unique sense of style. Embrace your unique style and flaunt it without the fear of judgment from others.
Experiment with your style – High school is the best time to experiment with your style because everyone around you is also undergoing a metamorphosis and understanding their style. Break out of your comfort zone, and don’t be hesitant to try out new fabrics, colors, silhouettes, and patterns. Trying out new things will help boost your confidence, give you the freedom to experience new styles, and come into your own as a fashionista.
Wear a mask – With schools and extracurricular activities beginning, it can be easy to forget that the threat of COVID-19 is still existent, and wearing a mask is mandatory at all times when in public. You can always find avenues to express yourself through your face masks as well. Perhaps you could find a face mask that contains a reference to your favorite film or TV show, has a quote that motivates you, or a joke that always makes you laugh. Fashion is all about creative expression, and you can do that with a face mask as well.
Always be hygienic – If you are wondering how hygiene is a part of being stylish and fashionable as a school student, let me tell you. More often than not, school students don’t pay attention to personal hygiene, and it shows. Presentability is an important aspect of fashion. A well-groomed person will always be respected more than someone who isn’t because it means you care about yourself, and it shows that you have invested time and effort in presenting yourself well for the other person. Not to forget, a school is a formal institution of education, so you should always be well-groomed and hygienic while attending school.
