Hey, it’s finals! Did you know it’s finals week? Because it’s finals week. The semester is coming to the end we thought we’d never see, and we’ve officially seen the first snow of the season! Campus is abuzz with students blowing off steam by rolling around in the snow and making plans with friends back home for the much-anticipated winter break. Despite all the stress, the reward that comes after finals week is pretty sweet.
For me, the worst part about finals is that fashion tends to be scarce. I’m a culprit myself, but the moccasins and the sweats can be an eyesore. Not that there’s anything wrong with being comfy. It’s a virtue! But I find that quote-unquote “real clothes” can be more comfy that typical sweats.
Take a gander at this Fashionista. She’s wearing a chunky infinity scarf to keep warm while she studies, instead of wrestling with a bulky hoodie. Paired with leggings and sweater, she’s still comfy and warm, without the bulk. I especially love her take on the typical UGG boot. I like to call these “moca-boots.” They’re a combination of comfy slippers and shearling boots, but so much cuter. Black makes them versatile, while the hardware details and cute fur decorations make them super fun. I also love how this Fashionista kept this look fresh with a pop of color among an all-black base. When everyone’s practically in uniform with Black North Face jackets and black yoga pants, a pop of color will definitely make you stand out, even if it’s just in the library!
Now repeat after me: I solemnly swear not to resort to wearing those sweatpants from high school during finals week. The best part about this look is that it’s already in your closet! For the sake of simplicity, stick to black basics: these fleece-lined leggings are so cozy and this black sweater is the warmest thing you’ll ever own.
Now for the fun stuff. A chunky circle scarf is all the rage this season, so snatch one up to keep toasty warm in the chilliest weather. And try to get out of your comfort zone in the shoe department. While moccasins are comfy, everyone’s wearing them, so what fun is that? Switch up your shoe game with these boots that have a cool Navajo twist. And of course, don’t forget to accessorize with your favorite color! By rocking your best hue, you’ll give yourself an extra boost of confidence to get you through your tests. Good luck!
