Fashionista Spotlight

It’s the time of year when you must choose between getting enough sleep or ending the semester strong: finals week. The end of the semester is by far one of the most stressful times of the year—all you want to do is throw on sweatpants and get your exams over with. However, like this Fashionista, there are simple ways to take on finals week without losing your sense of style. For example, statement shoes can transform the look of simple leggings instantly. In all, this Fashionista puts together a stress-free outfit despite her busy week.

How To: For finals week, you of course want to pick something comfortable to wear for your endless hours in the library. However, there are simple adjustments that you can make to your outfit that will not only make you comfortable, but also stay true to your style. For a look inspired by this Fashionista, add some fun shoes to the pants of your choice. A small touch to your outfits during stressful weeks can make you look and feel on top of your game. For instance, a cute addition that I noticed in this Fashionista’s outfit was that her socks matched her undershirt. Leaving your room looking and feeling put together will help to give you that extra boost of confidence to end your semester strong!
