What are you wearing the first day of class?

It's a dilemma we face every day. We look into the closet wanting comfort and style, carefully weighing both before we select the perfect shoes and outfit. (For you guys out there--an "outfit" is the pairing of pants and a shirt.)

The first day of school is especially important. On Monday, Aug. 22, what will students be wearing on TCC campuses? Will the excitement of wanting to make a good first impression drive students to wear cute skinny jeans and name brand graphic tees? Or will the classic college just-rolled-out-of-bed fashion statement be seen in the hallway runways?

Either way, you are taking a fashion risk. Too cute and people think you tried too hard. Too slouchy and people think you don't care.

I will visit all four campuses on Monday to see what students are wearing on the first day of school. I will also be taking names and snapping photos. The best looks will be featured here on "Inside Out" Tuesday, Aug. 23. Let the fashion (and classes) begin!

  1. I am a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. I really don't think this is important at all, and I would rather be in class with people in pajama pants and a stained t-shirt who are being polite and working hard, over those who are dressed to the nines, and are completely uncooperative and rude. (As was my experience last semester) this just comes off as petty and superficial to Me.
