STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Leaving You High and Tribe

Style Advice of the Week

If you haven’t already, pull out your planner and prepare to pick your jaw up off the ground because apparently the semester is over. Finals are next week which means everyone is on the brink of revealing their manic study alter egos. Warning: personality alterations may vary during this time. For example, each finals week I show symptoms of extreme fatigue with my puffy panda bear eyes and my oversized “groutfits” (gray outfits) reveal my apathy toward physical appearances. Having said this, it’d be hypocritical of me to suggest dressing fashionably during this helpless time of ours. Though if you want (this is me being sensitive to your fragile state), I may have a solution to the groutfit issue.

The answer being high-waisted, tribal pants. This week’s Fashionista sports her trousers with a black tank top and white sandals to make a quick visit to a professor’s office hours. As she’s clearly prepping for finals, her springtime look outwardly proves it, too. Each aspect of her outfit, like the elastically synched waist and cropped pant legs, is equally flattering and reportedly quite comfortable. In contrast to my collection of study sweatpants, they’re uniquely detailed, boldly colored and could even serve as visual relief from reading 10 point font out of a textbook. Tribal is sure to be a popular pattern during the warm months ahead, so snatching yourself a pair of these would undoubtedly benefit you beyond the weeks of binge studying.

Regardless of what craziness finals week brings out in you, check out tribal inspired shows like Valentino and Emilio Pucci for a quick study break or shop my Pinterest board for graduation outfit ideas. Just try to remember, there is life beyond finals week and there are better dressing days ahead.
