Finals week is the happiest time of the year with break around the corner, but also a time of campus hibernation throughout the libraries. A key to getting enough sleep and studying is making sure that you feel confident for every test and project you have to tackle. One of the most important ways to feel confident is to stay away from sweatshirts and stick to staying stylish. When you look good, you feel good, and put together outfits are key.
This week’s Fashionisto was spotted strutting his stuff across the quad, taking full advantage of the warmer afternoon. Despite the gray skies, a bright yellow button-down adds a little sunshine to his overall look. Pastels and light shades are often only utilized in the late spring and summer months, but mixing color palettes is a simple way to stand out. With black corduroys, the brightness of his shirt is the focus of this look. Corduroys, especially in muted tints, are a great alternative to jeans or khakis, because they keep you warm throughout the colder seasons and are great alternatives for day to night looks. With black oxford boots, he is standing out in a crowd of L.L. Bean snow boots and Timberlands. With a hipster vibe to these classic collegiate staples, it’s easy to make even the library hallways feel like a runway.
Hint: Are you especially busy this finals week? First, take a deep breath. Second, if you are going to be spending hours on end in the library, layers are key. Especially in the winter months you want to stay warm, but remember to dress to impress and motivate yourself. Add an oversize knit sweater to this look or a letter vest, and you’ll be able to stay cozy amongst all of those textbooks.
