You know you’re a true-blue fashion girl when amidst all your academics, extra-curricular activities and social life, you still obsess about what your #OOTD would be. But as much as style inspires your well-being, aspiring to be the best-dressed girl on campus can also prove to be a challenge. Herewith, a couple of struggles only the fashionistas who are still in college will understand.
1. You’re always late because you had to change your outfit multiple times this morning.
This won’t do. That won’t do. And that, ugh, that definitely won’t do! They can’t expect you to show up to class wearing last season’s summery prints. But by the time you get to put together something double-tap worthy, you realize you’re already late. *face palm*
2. You try to avoid repeating outfits.
You wouldn’t want to be caught dead wearing a repeated outfit. But let’s face it, sometimes your mixing-and-matching powers have their limitations. There will come a point in your academic year when you’ve already exhausted all the possible combinations for your favorite top and skirt.
3. You ask yourself on a daily basis: Heels or no heels?
Commuting and running from building A to building B can be such a pain, so as much as you’d love to sport that new pair of booties you just bought a week ago, you can’t help but second-guess yourself.
4. A huge chunk of your allowance goes to shopping.
You’re dying to get a wardrobe update, but the thing is, you’re not a working girl yet. So even though you're itching to go on a shopping spree, you only have limited resources a.k.a. allowance from your parents.
5. You overthink your #OOTD.
The world is your runway, and that includes college. Therefore, you have a tendency to overthink what your daily outfit would be. In fact, you even have pegs which you screencapped from Chiara Ferragni’s Instagram account.
6. Dress code is a b*tch.
It’s painful to think about all the shorts, skirts, and sleeveless tops that you can’t wear because the school authorities say so. So now, whenever you go shopping, you’d have to take that dress code into consideration. Have these people never heard of sartorial freedom?
