What to Wear

You may think that scoping out street style during finals week would be a daunting task. On many campuses the uniform for finals week is nothing other than athletic shorts and T-shirts. However, many Fashionistas/os have found a way to break out of this mold, and put together outfits that are easy yet chic.

This Fashionista definitely did not conform to the ubiquitous finals ensemble, but instead sports this comfortable outfit that still shows off her personal style. This DIY repurposed T-shirt is a perfect example of how to personalize the classic finals look. She mentioned that it was a nightgown that she found at an attic sale and then cut into a shirt. This is a perfect example of how great pieces can come from anywhere. Finding items outside of retail stores and tailoring or reworking them yourself is also a great way to make sure you have something completely unique. With a piece like this, you will be turning heads and have everyone asking, “where did you get that?”

Leggings are a great alternative to sweatpants when you’re looking for something you can sit and study in but don’t want to compromise fashion. I have been known to sport this look all too often just because it is just so simple and feels better than real pants. Black leggings like these create a sleek silhouette while, unlike skinny jeans, still allowing you move freely.

Functional footwear is also an imperative of any finals-week outfit. This Fashionista chose a favorite pair of Converse to complete her look. Black and white Converse are so classic and are a great neutral shoe to pair with anything for a sporty vibe. Her outfit is on point and now all this Fashionista needs to focus on is acing her exams.

One Simple Change: When the weekend rolls around and finals are over, this T-shirt can still be a integral part of your wardrobe. Pair it with some high-waisted denim shorts when you go hang out on the quad with friends.
