Don’t let the crushing workload that comes with being a student on assignment deadlines squash your swag. The next time you’re thinking of rolling up to lectures clad in your most presentable sleepwear, take some inspiration from these jet-setting celebs and recreate their killer off-duty styles.
Pop of Colour
A baggy muscle tank and ripped jeans would be considered dressed down were it not for the spicy pop of reds from Zendaya’s top and platform heels. If rocking sky high pumps aren’t your thing, swop ’em out for a pair of classic sneakers, making sure to accessorise with a statement necklace for an extra oomph.
Rihanna pairs a slouchy hoodie with a structured outerwear (worn off-shoulder of course) to add a hint of shape to her outfit. She keeps it simple by accessorising with high socks and white strappy sneakers.
Reaching for solid coloured pieces are way easier for lazy days with no time to fret over your outfit. Gigi Hadid pairs her all-black jeans and T-shirt combo with subtle metallic accessories to create a classy look with minimal effort. For a complete ‘dressed down yet chic’ look, slip on a comfortable pair of sneakers.
Plain T-shirts can hold any casual outfit together, and they’re also the best to grab if you’re running late. Upgrade your t shirts with fun prints like IU did with cactus graphics so you can still look fashionably cute even on those hasty days.
We’re all familiar with the typical sleeveless tops and denim shorts that most teenagers reach for, but this dressed down look doesn’t have to be boring. Be strategic with your accessories – Cara wore chunky high cut Nike’s and a bright red beanie that injects her fun personality and draws attention away from the standard outfit.
Dress down days are synonymous with jeans – you can even pull off a sophisticated look with the right cuts! Selena Gomez looks extra leggy with bootcut denim jeans and platforms that elevate an otherwise basic pullover. Pull your hair back into a ponytail to save time on styling your mane and let a pair of glam hoop earrings do their thing.
Lee Sung-Kyung layers on a long wooly sweater over a white crew neck and black denim shorts, instantly turning a beach-day outfit to a getup that’s good for hitting the town. Even Miranda Kerr knows the magic of throwing a blazer over a casual outfit.
Little Black Dress
The fashion classic doesn’t have to be a skin tight situation. For those lazy days, a black loose-fitted T-shirt dress or a skater dress will go with any accessory and shoes – don’t have to worry about mismatched tops and bottoms, the LBD makes those ‘I just rolled out of bed’ days so much simpler.
