DON'T PANIC: School doesn't start for approximately a bajillion more days.
But that doesn't mean you can't get a jump-start on looking FABULOUS this year. Instead of wearing syrup-stained sweats every day (damn you, delicious breakfast pancakes!), why not up the glam factor a bit with a loose dress, a bright pair of cropped chinos, or a neon tee? They're just as comfortable as your PJs, but infinitely more stylish. Try out some of the great looks in this slideshow, and you'll feel confident and cool—even when you accidentally slip on a pile of mashed potatoes in the cafeteria. Hey, it's happened to the best of us.

Since 2010, Chelsea Dagger (known in real life as Chelsea Aaron) has been SparkLife's sweatiest editor. She's currently working on a how-to-kiss guide for teens, and when she's not conducting smooch-related research on her life-size Joseph Gordon-Levitt cardboard cutout, she's eating pancakes, stocking up on industrial-strength deodorant, and destroying everyone at Harry Potter trivia.
