It's no secret that college kids love their sleep. But whether exams have students pulling all-nighters, or partying late into the night before an 8 a.m. class seems like a good idea, sleep is often eliminated from the equation. But even if you're running on little or no sleep, there is no need to dress like it.

To look your best while feeling your worst, follow these simple steps for a put together look in less than 20 minutes:

Put on real clothes

Sweatpants, pajamas and gym clothes are all major fashion no-nos that far too many break far too often. Unless you're actually going to be going to the gym directly from class, stop wearing exercise clothes on a daily basis.

a long night. Choose a simple hairdo like a

messy bun, ponytail, braid or put back with a

headband to keep a polished look when you're

makeup, but simple necessities will keep you

to top lashes. Tinted moisturizer will cover

flaws, and blush will help to brighten the face

to look more rested.

Simply put, the worse you feel, the better

you should dress. No one will suspect you're

running on no sleep when your outfit looks

better than theirs.
