After all, you're still in school, and graphic tees and crop tops are more than enough to keep you looking fashionable in campus. Plus, workwear clothes are too serious for college anyway. While work may seem far off in the future when you're busy solving crazy hard Accounting problems or working on a 3000-word essay on Rizal, workwear clothes are fashionable, versatile, and are good investments, too. You can wear it to your defense, or even to an interview for your dream internship and you can rock them in campus, too! Read on as we fill you in on what work wardrobe pieces you can totally wear to school. Plus, how you can turn serious workwear into something fun and fresh for college!

The pencil skirt screams chic and elegant like no other. Regardless of what you pair it with, the pencil skirt makes the entire outfit look polish in a snap. While working girls wear the pencil skirt with a crisp white button down, you can make the pencil skirt student friendly by matching it with a casual tee, or a trendy blouse.
