There are days when even the most diehard Fashionistas want nothing more than to walk around campus in a class T-shirt from the fifth grade and a pair of sweatpants that haven’t seen a washing machine in far too long than should be admitted. Alas, this is neither aesthetically pleasing to any onlookers nor is it conducive to feeling remotely confident in taking on a day of higher education happenings. But rather than wallow in self-pity while stroking the nearest pair of heels, rethink your comfy day strategy by exchanging the aforementioned sad combination of top and bottom for a couple of nifty knits.

Take this Fashionista’s laid back look as your guide to rocking the knitwear trend. A simple base of black skinny jeans and a white shirt allow for a little pattern clashing elsewhere in the ensemble. Mixing prints can be daunting (no one wants to appear like they got dressed in the dark), but sticking to a combination of three or four common colors can help you to pull off the look. This Fashionista’s cardigan’s striped motif doesn’t match her beanie’s print to a T, but the similar color scheme of neutrals, reds and yellows work well to create a cohesive look.

So rather than resort to a boring gray sweater or worse (you know exactly what I’m talking about, Fashionistas), jazz up your casual chic outfit with a few differently patterned knits. You’ll be able to strut through campus in both comfort and style. Nifty, no?
