37 Best College Spring Outfits for Flatter You

Bringing an outfit that’s totally comfortable is super important. Whether you’re sitting on a college for six hours or waking up just a little too hungover, you’re definitely going to want to reach for those comfy clothes in the morning (until it’s time to put on real clothes for the day-or not!)

Everyone needs a cute cover up, especially one you feel comfortable in…because chances are, you’re going to be wearing this a lot (so much that it will turn into one of your spring break outfits.) There’s so many different styles of cover ups to rock like sheer ones, kimono wraps, or ones that mimic a maxi dress. Even a super cute romper will do the trick!

When you get started, think about your particular school. If people tend to dress a little more casually, you know that you probably won’t be wearing a lot of dresses and skirts even at parties. Also, if you’re moving to a Northeastern school, like Princeton, you’re going to need to buy winter clothes and a coat – that might seem optional if you’re coming from a warmer climate, but it’s not!

Calendars will tell you spring has sprung, but in a lot of places, the weather is in that awkward stage where it keeps switching between warm, cold, and rainy. It seems like no matter how often you check the forecasts, you never really know what you’re going to get until you step outside.

Getting stumped when it come to building the perfect spring outfit often has less to do with not having the right items, and more to do with knowing how to put them together. We all probably own staples like a vintage T-shirt and a silk skirt, but we all might not think to pair them up. In fact, it’s a safe bet that we all have items sitting in our closets right this second that can be worn in dozens of unexpectedly stylish ways this spring—all we’re missing is a small dose of inspiration.

Some might not seem groundbreaking, but they’re not meant to be. They’re just extremely thoughtful, cool, clever examples of how to put pieces together to create outfits that are impactful, accessible, and stylish—by using things you likely already have in the depths of your closet.
