What to Wear on a College Campus Tour

Many of you guys have college tours coming up, and the one question I get asked multiple times a day by my tumblr followers is, "What would you wear if you were touring [insert college name here] and it was supposed to be [cold/windy/hot/etc...] on that day?" Since I kept getting that question, I threw together some outfit ideas! I hope y'all find these useful!

A long sleeved dress and comfortable sandals is perfect for breezy, spring weather. It's not too casual, but it's not too dressed up either! I advise taking a crossbody bag of some kind so you don't have to hold stuff in your hands while walking around campus. It's also a good idea to wear a watch, because certain events during the tour might happen during certain times (and looking at your phone to check the time might be distracting).

If it's still cold where you're touring, wear comfortable yet appropriate clothing! I suggest a pair of dark wash jeans, a button down shirt, a cute vest, and comfortable flats. A Longchamp tote is the perfect size to hold your vest if you get hot while inside buildings!



If it feels like a sauna outside, I'd recommend wearing nice chino shorts and a flowy blouse to keep you cool! Again, make sure your sandals are comfortable, because you'll most likely be doing a lot of walking (and you really, really don't want to get blisters).

  3. These are all very accurate - the most important thing is being comfortable! Touring colleges means plenty of walking and having to work with however the weather decides to be!
