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: Leggings As Pants

Keeping It Classy: Leggings As Pants
On this week's post I'm tackling the trend that plagues undergrads and young fashion-lovers alike.  The dreaded "leggings-as-pants" hysteria, we've all seen it, and probably don't want to admit that we've done it. Fine, I admit it! When you have 6 classes a week, a job, and a life, fashion tends to fall by the wayside in college. So you roll out from under your mattress, throw on a hoodie and your comfy cotton leggings, in black of course. Meanwhile, these leggings tend to leave little to the imagination. Leggings are meant to complement a longer shirt, tunic, or dress. If you wouldn't wear pantyhose with just a t-shirt, think about that when you reach for the trusty black leggings. Ready to class it up? Opt for a longer shirt, like the hi-low hem t-shirt featured above. Riding boots elongate the leg-line and add a chic element. A boyfriend cardigan adds extra back-coverage. Belt the cardigan to polish the look, add pearl studs and a turquoise bubble necklace for some punch. The final look is perfect for a "lazy day" of classes in the Fall.
