With the school year winding down, there has been an increase in time spent at the library and a decrease in effort towards one’s outfit. Finals season is a tricky time because when you are up late studying for a chemistry exam, waking up a little earlier in the morning to change out of your pajamas into a chic ensemble is not the most enticing suggestion; however, this Fashionista shows that it is easier to look trendy than one would think.
Pairing a simple red skirt, patterned tank and classic denim jacket, this Fashionista looks sophisticated and stylish, despite the simplicity of the outfit. Following the tradition of designers like Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, her all-American look is utilitarian, yet still elegant. She understands that the key to dressing well during finals is not to simply throw on your yoga pants and T-shirt, as tempting as it sounds, but to use your basics wisely.
Ready to make this look your own? This Fashionista’s denim jacket is a must-have, basic that works with any outfit to give it an Americana vibe, especially this season. Paired with a black skater dress, like this one from Urban Outfitters, a skinny belt and some white sneakers, your outfit will be chic, comfortable and ready for whatever — whether it be a final, a study date or meeting with a professor.
Before running out of your dorm in your pajamas, take a second to throw on some simple basics. If you look good, you will inevitably feel good. What better way is there to go into a final besides that?
