Exam week is heavily upon us down here in northern Florida and the warm weather has finally started to become consistent! The intense study schedules have taken control over students’ wardrobe choices and left only the strong to survive. But none the less, there remains plenty of students here at Flagler that know how to style an outfit after a long night of studying.
This week’s Fashionisto gave us a great example on how to stay casual yet comfy for finals week. He wore a royal blue, light-weight, pull over sweater that gave him a relaxed feel. He matched it with a pair of plaid cargo shorts tying in the royal blue theme. He then threw on a pair of his most comfortable sneakers and was good to go, channeling a carefree relaxed look.
Even though it’s exam week you don’t have to dress as relaxed as this Fashionisto. I’m the type of person who does better on tests when I look and feel my best. It would be so simple to dress up this outfit! Accessorizing is the key component to simply improving an outfit. Adding a necklace or a white watch would bring great contrast to the royal blue color and draw attention to detail. Perhaps you would prefer a white T-Shirt with a cardigan over it for a color blocking scheme. There are so many ways to accessorize to your liking!
Since this is such a simple outfit there are many ways to create it for your style liking! If you prefer a more nautical look I suggest you try a pair of Sperry Top-Siders with a Ralph Lauren T-Shirt, such as a yellow V-Neck. If you’re interested in a more rustic look you could pair the shorts with a denim button-down, classic black Vans and a pair of Ray-Ban sunnies.
Don’t be afraid to make this outfit your own! It’s simple to re-create and simple for you to rock! Go out on your campus and show these exams you mean business while looking good at the same time.
