About Me

My photo
College Student. Sometimes dancer. Aspiring fashion journalist and everyday style enthusiast. I started my blog back in 2010 on a whim, and now it has grown into the visual representation of the power that I believe fashion can have. It's not about having clothes it's about what you do with them, what you wear says who you are. Fashion is transformative, and a chic bag or outfit puts a smile on my face as much as a good book on a rainy day. My blog is about dressing the undergrad and young professional, because so little markets cater to our style. You've officially been accepted into The Undergrad Style File.

Keeping It Classy: Chic Clubwear

Keeping It Classy: Chic Clubwear

Introducing a new series on The Undergrad Style File, called "Keeping It Classy." Where I will feature a new Keep It Classy post each week that will taken a trend or item of clothing that is usually in a college student's wardrobe; one that can often come off as more tacky than classy, and show how to turn it chic. For my first post I featured club wear. The quintessential college girl's going out get-up. Normally this is done through barely there body-con skirts and heels that guarantee scary feet in the future. Time to nix that! I've featured three different kind of club or party-goers if clubs aren't your thing. For the "conservative clubber" I've featured pants and a t-shirt for comfort. But they get a little more fun for nighttime in a bright red hue and an open-back T-shirt. Black patent leather wedges have the same effect as sky-high heels without the side-effects. The "risk-taker" or the barely-there club-goer gets a little fancier with a tight-fitting low-cut black halter dress and red pumps for a pop of color. If you're the girl in the middle of these two, try a lacey-effect sweetheart illusion-neckline dress. The cut of the dress is still figure friendly, without tempting sketchy people to try and get friendly with your figure. Sequin pumps give the outfit some edge, silver hoops and a winged eye bump up the outfit from "nice" to nighttime. To keep it classy, if it's the right club you don't need to bare skin to get in and you can go out without hanging it all out. How would you chic-up your club wear?

-Stay stylish,


  1. This is great advice, for those who want to avoid the usual skimpy club look but still maintain some sass with class ;)

    1. thanks, going out wear doesn't have to be barely there
