With finals in full swing, it’s tough to be motivated to do anything aside from studying, and dressing cute to class, well I’m pretty sure that’s the last thing on everyone’s minds. While looking around campus for my Fashionista this week, amidst the mix of sweatpants and presentation outfits, I spotted this Fashionista who was the perfect balance of comfy casual and adorable, if I do say so myself.
Pairing basic pieces from your closet, like this Fashionista did, can turn out to be the ideal outfit, especially when stressed about finals; basics don’t really take a lot of thought in order to be put together yet turn out to be simple and chic, which is always in style. This Fashionista was seen donning some staples everyone should have in their closet—dark wash skinnies, basic black T-shirt and a blazer. All of these items would be great even if they were all solids, but what I love about this Fashionista’s look is that she put a twist on her outfit by incorporating the navy and forest green plain of her jacket, it makes her outfit that much more interesting, and I must say, that is what caught my eye in the first place—we all know I’m a sucker for a good blazer!
Recreating this look is easier than you thought! Start by basing your outfit around a great pair of dark-wash skinny jeans, the darker the better, in my opinion. Then, take any basic T-shirt or even tank top, solid colored or maybe try a screen printed one for added interest and throw on a great structured blazer or jacket. You could stick with a basic solid color or follow suit of this Fashionista and choose a cool patterned one, whichever fits your style. To top this look off, accessorize with a scarf and your everyday jewelry and you’ve got a perfect, low maintenance outfit. Use these tips for your next exam and save yourself the added stress of finding an outfit!
