Tips for Staying Comfortable Yet Stylish at College

For most college students, being overwhelmed with work and things to get done on a daily basis means that the last thing they want is to end up sitting through long classes wearing something uncomfortable. The good news is that in recent years, loungewear has come a long way and much of it has actually become really trendy fashion choices.

So, for anyone who wants to look stylish but make sure that they are comfortable during those long mornings sat in the lecture hall or seminar room, there are plenty of options out there to choose from.

Here are some top ideas for staying comfortable whilst pulling off an impeccable style.

Tip #1. Go for the Activewear Trend:

Recently, people have been seen wearing their gym clothes everywhere – and the good news is that unless you tell somebody, nobody needs to know if you’re not actually on your way to work out. Of course, going to your lecture in your gym leggings or a stylish tracksuit set from the Ivy Park clothing range could inspire you to spend some time in the campus gym afterward, which is always great, too!

Tip #2. Wear Comfortable Shoes:

When you’re walking around campus all day, carrying your books and perhaps your MacBook, the last thing that you want is to have sore and aching feet. So, don’t forget your choices of footwear when it comes to putting together your stylish yet comfortable wardrobe. Thankfully, sneakers have taken the fashion world by storm recently, and since they’re so comfortable and everybody loves wearing them so much, it doesn’t look like this trend is going to go anywhere soon. A comfortable pair of sneakers is a must-have for pairing with all your college outfits.

Tip #3. Go for Oversized:

With most college semesters happening over the winter months, oversized jumpers and sweaters can be a seriously comfortable yet fashionable choice of attire for those cold winter mornings when you need to be up and out of the house at an ungodly hour for your 8am class. When paired with leggings or a comfortable pair of skinny jeans and your favorite sneakers or warm boots, a slouchy woollen jumper can look super stylish, whilst also being perfectly soft and warm!

Tip #4. Stretchy Isn’t a Bad Thing:

Let’s face it – nobody likes sitting down for a long time when the waistband of their jeans is pinching and digging into them. Even if your jeans fit well, chances are that you won’t be feeling extra comfortable in them at the end of a long day studying in the library. As a college student, know that stretchy waistbands are your best friend, so don’t be afraid to go for jeggings instead of jeans, for example, or prioritise clothing that’s made from a stretch fabric. Not only is this more comfortable, it’ll also be better for your skin and your circulation throughout the day.
