Finals week is upon is here at The University of Alabama, and with it comes coffee-induced all-nighters, the occasional panic attack and becoming very close friends with the library. It’s also the time you see your fellow students walking around like zombies, some still with life in their eyes, others too far gone to save.
During this time you may be tempted to roll out of bed and walk out the door in your pajamas or throw on head-to-toe sweats for a marathon study session, however you should take the five extra minutes it takes to put on actual pants that include a zipper and a button. This may seem unnecessary, but the phrase, “dress for success” is so popular for a reason. A lot of times when you feel more put together, you feel more confident resulting in an extra boost of confidence during a test. Also, if you wear something resembling pajamas to study in, you will eventually start to get sleepy and unproductive. Even just putting on jeans and a cotton T-shirt can perk you up a bit more to have a more productive study session.
This week’s Fashionisto is a perfect example of what to wear during finals week. His outfit is complete with a few simple, easy to throw on pieces, but he still looks put together. It’s made up of loose-fitting Levi Brand Jeans, a button-down, a Hane’s sweatshirt, Sperry Top-Siders, and a laptop bag. See? Easy peasy and still comfortable enough to sit for hours in the library.
Hint: Don’t give up on your clothing choices just because it’s finals week! Feeling put together results in more productive study time and more confident test taking.
