We all know there is a certain attraction to the icy woman in a power suit. The go-getter. But for every girl in a "short skirt and a long jacket," I have often wondered if there is a struggling fashion ingenue underneath all that cotton-poly blend. What's hiding under the requisite pantyhose layered under your actual pants? Listen up all you Wharton girls, I have some chic College student advice. Actuarial Science isn't really that cool -- it's time to put down the Forbes, and pick up some fashion.

I started with the basics -- plain grey suit, plain white shirt, devastatingly plain black mary-janes. We've all seen this conspiracy attacking otherwise tolerable-looking females in Huntsman age 18-35. I replaced the high-waisted pleated skirt with a low-rise, studded denim mini. The black high heels have been tossed in favor of gold leather flats, equal parts comfort and cool. With the temperature steadily slipping out of the 60s, I traded the blazer for a grey zip-up wool sweater. Slap on a chunky bead necklace, a big ring or two, loosen your bun, and you're done. Cheers to College!
