If you're new to college this semester, you may have discovered that being at a University requires a lot of walking. Campuses can be huge, classes far apart, and work a long way away. Trying to make a good impression on peers and teachers, look fashionable, and juggle the problem of rushing around constantly can be tough.

To help you out, today we have three simple, campus-ready looks to help you find the perfect balance of walking comfort and cuteness, all under $100.

Pretty & Practical - $87.40

Walking outfit 1: Long sleeve dress, burgundy tights, ballet shoes, earrings, bracelet

Product Information: Dress - Lulu's, Tights- Modcloth, Shoes - Lulu's, Earrings - Nordstrom, Ring Set - ASOS

A tights and dress combo may not be ideal for a cross-country trek, but pairing it with flats will make this look cross-campus ready. However, make sure your flats are worn-in and not brand new. Nothing is worse than stumbling up stairs with blisters on your ankles!

Casual & Relaxed - $74.25

Walking outfit 2: Basic jeans, long sleeve tee, low heeled ankle boots, backpack

Product Information: Sweater - H&M, Jeans - Forever 21, Shoes - Charlotte Russe, Backpack - Charlotte Russe

For days when you can't be bothered to wear anything but your favorite jeans, slip on some darling low-heeled ankle booties and a striped pullover sweater. As for accessories, a carry-all backpack with a shoulder strap is a must if you're in a rush.

Chic & Cozy - $99.69

Walking outfit 3: Leather skirt, cozy flats, long sleeve sweater, pendant necklace

Product Information: Sweater - H&M, Skirt - Romwe, Shoes - DSW, Necklace - Forever 21

For chilly Fall days, nothing is more perfect than a slouchy sweater. A faux leather skirt and smoking slippers are totally on-trend, and you'll have no problem running between classes in them.
