Style Advice of the Week

This is it. If you haven’t already made it through, you’re just days away until the end of the fall semester. This is the final push. What many of us forget during finals is that this is also the last time many of your friends will see you before the New Year. Do you want them to remember you with ripped up sweats and unwashed hair? I sure hope not. While everything may seem impossible during finals (including sleep), you can still dress yourself up and make a fabulous final impression on your peers before the long break.

It was no coincidence that I caught this Fashionista as she was leaving the library. Her twist on a boho-chic look grabbed my eye and I was completely drawn into the cohesiveness of the entire ensemble. In DC, it’s gone from 72-degrees to 32-degrees in a matter of two days and this Fashionista was ready for the wacky weather with her thick flannel coat. She loosely tucks a striped V-neck into her cuffed boyfriend jeans and finishes it off with some stone-colored booties. Her accessories are limited but classic with a pair of aviators and a Louis Vuitton tote, perfect for carrying around heavy books during finals.

The cuffed jeans with booties are the true trend in this Fashionista’s look. It’s so easy to fall into the J.Crew advertised look of boyfriend jeans with a pair of Sperry Top-Siders; however, she takes on a more classic look by adding some femininity with her heeled booties. The stone color is an absolute winter must. Perfect for any occasion, stone can go with just about any look and color. The heels accentuate the looseness of the pants and the small amount of ankle showing makes the look more casual for that final test.

This look is so cohesive and finals-friendly due to the simplicity of colors and pieces that are put together to make one chic ensemble. You don’t need to go all-out during finals with statement pieces and accessories; those can get annoying during exams and all you should be thinking about is the test material. Stick with the comfortable basics. When they’re put together correctly, you’ll always get an A+!

When it comes to this final countdown, rock all of those clothes you’ve been saving for the semester. Who cares if you distract people from their studies with your look? After all, the campus is your runway.
