Campus styling


If you’re a student, you spend more than half your day in school. Shea Rasol guides you to dressing right.

I don’t knowwhat is up with lecture halls and air conditioning systems, but they all seem to have a way of keeping you half-frozen as you struggle to take down notes. Keep stylishly warm with two thin knit items – reach for bold striped sweaters to wear underneath that draping knit cardigan.

The student body meeting

If juggling class and after-school clubs is your forte, balance them in style. Be neat and presentable when organising weekly meetings in smart casuals such as a fitted buttoned shirt and a maxi skirt. Show your confidence in the way you speak and how you carry yourself.

The library session

Who doesn’t love the daily visits to the library? Sometimes all you need is a little alone time with books. A shirtdress works well with the library dress code without compromising style. Go for slacks or palazzos and be sure to carry a messenger bag with you to lug all those borrowed books!

The all-day class

Madewell the Dover messenger | $148 |

You’re bound to have at least one day packed with classes, from morning till evening (thank you, schedule administrator!). The best style advice for that day is comfort: layer an oversized sweater or T-shirt over a casual maxi skirt and finish off with a pair of sandals. This skirt is your saviour when you feel like sitting cross-legged during those long and winding lectures.
