As school season begins once again, students are faced with all campus-related dilemmas—loads of homework and school projects, dealing with new professors, budgeting your allowance, finding the perfect way to spend your free time (like joining a new org or applying for a part-time job) and basically just slaying another crazy semester. We feel you, college kid. #thestruggleisreal #beentheredonethat
While we know how hard it is to keep your head above water during school days, it's heaven-sent that help is within reach. Examples? For a well-organized sem: Planner. For quick research in seconds: Google. And for college lifestyle tips and tricks: Chalk Magazine!
And speaking of Chalk, the new school year also welcomes the magazine's annual and most awaited interschool contest: The Bright Young Manila Campus Hotties search! Recently, they launched the new batch of the must-watch-for ladies and gents at the Chalk x H&M Big University Night.

The night brought out their inner cool effortlessly—they've presented five-star campus style you yourself can totally nail on your first day, and every day of the week! Why not try:
Stripes. Go for small stripes—it's not overwhelming even for those with big frames. Try body-hugging pieces if you're in to show off some curves (but downplay it by covering up all the right places—it's your first day, after all).

Color. What better way to kick off the school year than by donning a bright hue? Best pair it with denim, or go on a color-blocking scheme.

Just add nice elements to make it cool and chic—choose different textures or cuts, or dress your outfit up with eye-popping accessories to make a statement!
