After all-nighters and caffeine overloads hardly anyone has the motivation to look presentable for their final exams. I know my exam attire consists of sweatpants, a tank, a comfy pair of flip-flops and a big, messy bun on the top of my head. However, I recently realized that by wearing something you feel confident in, whether it be your red lipstick or killer bomber jacket, you can conquer the world—er, the exam. This has not been scientifically researched, but it makes sense.
When it comes to fashion, confidence is key. Dressing up feels good, and even though you’re stressed on whether the answer is “A” “B” or “C,” that little extra confidence you have because you’re in your favorite shorts may help get you through the test.
This Fashionista was spotted after taking her morning final. She’s comfortable and chic in a high-low floral dress, topped with an army jean jacket. Her sandals are simple and cute, perfect for the boho look. This Fashionista’s outfit is ideal for taking a final because it’s fun and trendy, but not constricting or distracting.
While you want to be in the clothing that makes you feel the best, you also want to be comfortable. This Fashionista’s loose, high-low dress is a definite do for finals attire, as well as a huge hit for this summer’s trends! Free People has a fabulous collection of flowey dresses for the season, including several high-low looks. My favorite for a bohemian-chic finals get-up is the FP ONE Geo Shapeless Dress. It can be worn for numerous occasions—a cover-up on the beach, a dress, a tunic. The colors are bright and fun and it isn’t too long or formal to wear for your final.
Sometimes the final rooms can be chilly and you always need to be prepared for the random cool spring days. A light jacket, such as this Fashionista’s army green jacket, is perfect to go over your dress or blouse for any occasion! The army green adds a muted color to this look, contrasting with the bright pinks. The additional texture creates an overall trendy outfit—which will ultimately help you ace that test. The TEXTILE Elizabeth and James Kelsey Parka from Urban Outfitters is an awesome army green jacket to top off your finals look.
This Fashionista rocks a pair of gladiator-type sandals that are simple and perfect for the relaxed look. Steve Madden’s Benadet Strappy Gladiator Sandals are the best shoes for this season. They’re comfy and the golden strap adds a little sparkle to every look. Where these to your finals and light up the dark and tired room with your shiny shoes.
Finals can be a super stressful time and your clothing isn’t the first thing on your mind. But, just remember when you’re busy acing that exam, you look good doing it!
One Simple Change: Remove the jacket and add on some nude wedges and you have the perfect outfit for a casual date night. It’s sexy and sweet, but great for a simple dinner out with your mate!
