How To Look Effortlessly Cool On Move-In Day

Moving Day does not have to look like Laundry Day. Because moving into the dorms (or a new apartment) also means meeting your entire floor (and future friends — unless you happen to be moving in NYC, in which case, go ahead and continue to be antisocial). And that means it’s even more important to look the part of the cool, collected woman you are...all while lugging around suitcases twice your size.
How, you ask? Rescue an outfit from your packing frenzy that is moveable (we're funny, we know) but cute, in fabrics that stretch but also make a statement. Practical shoes are a must, but sweats and tee are not. Hello, new roommates! This is what "Best Dressed" looks like, all grown up.

Of course, no matter what must-haves you add to your closet, you’ll always need a strong, stylish foundation underneath. The Lily of France® Extreme Wireless Push-Up bra is not just soft and comfortable, but also features a sliding J-hook for rocking racerback looks. Printed with patterns as colorful as anything you’d wear over it, it’s the ultimate supporting player, whatever your style.
