Campus Style Guide- A Capsule Wardrobe

I have successfully fooled all of LSU’s campus into thinking I have my life pulled together. People always tell me “OMG you look so cute today!” or “Wow someone looks good”. Ha! Jokes on you all because I never wake up more than 20 minutes before I have to leave the house. The trick is by having a capsule wardrobe.

I am known for only wearing black on campus. It’s just my thing. I put on a pair of either black leggings or shorts & open up my drawer that I have of just black tops & pick one out. They will always match because it’s all black! That is the constant basis of each outfit.



top- Tobi 

leggings- Lululemon

sports bra- Target

backpack- Target (old) (others I like here & here)

After you have the basis, you can then build upon it with different pieces to make it an outfit and a little more personalized.

For an athletic look, add sunglasses and an athletic jacket. Sporty but still cute & comfy!






jacket- Target

sunnies- Express

sneakers- Journeys Kids (similar pair here for normal sized feet)

phone case- Casetify


When theres a slight breeze outside I like to throw on my camo jacket. It’s light and not too over the top.

baseball cap- was a gift (similar here)


When it’s blustery or rainy I like to wear this fabulous parka/raincoat that my roommates gave me for Christmas! It’s super warm and has a hood that can be zipped away for when it’s not raining.



raincoat- BCBGeneration


My everyday accessories include a bumble bee earring in my cartilage piercing and my  dainty zodiac constellation necklace.

Another fun way to add to the outfit is with a bright pair of sneakers! I tend to lean towards pink tennis shoes but I just recently branched out and bought a black pair (seen above) that I have absolutely fallen in love with.


sneakers- Nike (old AF) (similar here)


A few other black tops I love you can find here, here, and here!

By following my campus style mantra, you too can trick people into thinking you’re pulled together with literally zero effort!
