Mid-March has struck and everyone knows what that means. An abundance of commitments pulling half of campus left and right. From prelims to summer internship interviews to planning for spring break, taking time to relax is the last thing on everyone’s minds. However, making sure you’re balanced academically, physically and mentally are the key to being your happiest and your most successful. On the day of a big test, embrace your inner Mary Kate Olsen mixed with a little old school Laguna Beach and rock what has been dubbed as “lounge chic.”
This week’s Fashionista was spotted prepping for her organic chemistry exam and looking cozy and happy while doing it. Wearing a simple American apparel sweatshirt, Juicy Couture sweatpants (hello, throwback!) and UGGs (throwback again!), she is staying warm while embracing style AND comfort. Topping it all off with a Patagonia vest, she is combating the weather that fluctuates from fifteen degrees and snowing to forty degrees and sunny within an hour. Her glasses add the perfect studious and adorable vibe to her overall look and show that she means business when it comes to molecules and the Periodic table. She also knows that living in the library for three days in baggy T-shirts is not an option.
Our Fashionista’s beanie shows that she is on top of the latest trend circulating around college campuses in the North East. With a winter that seems to be too stubborn to end, knit hats are flying off the racks. After months of bundling up, attempting to be stylish and weather savvy is a dilemma fixed in seconds by beanies. Super slouchy or striped or heather gray to black, the options never end and choosing one that fits you allows you to individualize the trend. Her black beanie is the most classic option and can be pulled on for a day of classes or even worn out at night with leather leggings and boots for a high style hipster look. So remember, a crazy week doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style and comfort, just know how to balance both, much like your hectic schedule.
Spotted: BCBGMAXAZRIA leads, and we all shall follow. That is the motto I have been embracing for as long as I can remember, and now more than ever. With runway looks of silk tops and heels and neutral colored beanies, these hats have officially made it big.
