What to Wear

Now that we’ve all studied our lives away and sold our souls to the finals gods, it’s time to let loose a little before we say our farewells. For some of us, these last few weeks are our last chance to soak up as much college culture as we can before we slip into the real world and begin our grownup lives — I’m guessing that sleeping till noon and going out on Thursdays isn’t necessarily acceptable in post-collegiate life. Though I’d much rather be singing Alice Cooper’s “School’s Out for Summer” than trekking my laptop and notecards to Starbucks for daily study sessions, I’m stuck cramming for exams and writing papers. On the bright side, I’ve started to see the joy in this little routine —especially because it allows me to rock my best casual chic spring getup. After all, when else can you sport the world’s tiniest pair of cutoffs?

While there’s always a portion of people who like to really scrub it during the last couple weeks of school, some of us prefer to use this time as an excuse to turn it up a couple notches. This is our last chance to bust out some of our best summer statement pieces before break. Plus, most of the time there’s some random hotties we haven’t seen all semester who show up to take the final test, which is the perfect opportunity to win them over with your winning look!

I caught this Fashionista taking a break from her study guides to grab a coffee downtown in a cute summery ensemble. Her signature Flagstaff flannel adds just enough grunge to her girly coral shorts, making her look ideal for flirty tomboys and preppy stylistas alike. Complete with a basic grey V-neck, a dainty peach necklace and some shimmery silver sandals, this Fashionista has the dressed down daytime look on lock. Is she stressing over a test or free falling into summer? We’ll never know.

One Simple Change: For a funkier southwest look, swap out those metallic sandals for some weathered leather booties. Booties look adorable with cutoffs and are the perfect kicks to sport during laidback springtime afternoons. Find some to sport and you’ll look Flag-chic in no time!
