On a Monday morning during finals week, one would expect to encounter a sea of half-awake college coeds in sweats clutching onto their Starbucks for dear life. Virginia Commonwealth University isn’t your average university, and the Fashionistas/os here still know how to dress to the nines even after pulling an all-nighter. Finals week is not an exception to skip on style.
I spotted this Fashionisto who mastered the art of dressing well during the most stressful week of the semester. He kept his thrifted, bright graphic sweater from Rumors the focal point of his outfit. He added a dark cuffed pair of skinny jeans and red canvas sneakers to complete this unique ensemble. He kept his accessories minimal and topped off this street-savvy look with a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers.
The key to being smart and stylish during finals week is adding layers to your ensemble. This Fashionisto prepared for the elements by layering a couple T-shirts under his sweater. When the temperatures rise in the afternoon, he can simply remove a layer to stay looking and feeling cool.
The bright lightweight sweater is a crucial piece for layering this spring. Local shops such as Rumors and Need Supply offer an endless amount of options that are right for every Fashionisto’s budget. This block pattern sweater from ASOS is a fun and unique statement piece that’s essential for the daring, fashion-forward Fashionisto’s closet. For a Fashionisto with more of a traditional style, try layering this slim cotton-cashmere V-neck sweater from J.Crew in a bold color over a T-shirt this season.
