What to Wear

One of the most exciting parts about college is the opportunity to study abroad. Those who study abroad have the opportunity to bring a little culture back to the United States through fashion. Different cultures influence worldwide trends. One major trend this winter and fall is harem pants. The first time I saw these pants was when my friend Jessica brought me a pair when she came back from Cambodia. The only problem is that these pants are hard to style. This Fashionista styled her pants with a maroon sheer top, and pink coat. Her outfit is perfect for the week of finals. As the semester comes to an end so does the motivation to dress stylish. Sweatpants and T-shirt becomes a college student’s best friend. This Fashionista shows a trendier alternative to sweatpants.

Harem pants are like pajamas because they are loose, comfortable and perfect for the library. They have a cool pattern so it does not look like you just rolled out of bed. Pair the pants with a flowy top, because studying in constricting clothes is distracting. The great thing about these pants is that you do not have to travel abroad to get a pair (even though it would be cooler). They can be found online or at retail stores like ASOS, and Forever 21.

Do not get so caught up in finals that fashion no longer becomes a priority. Studies show that dressing better can evoke motivational thoughts. By making the switch from a sweat pant to a harem pant and adding a slouchy top, dead week will be a breeze.

One Simple Change: By adding heels, a leather jacket and crop top these pants will be ready for a night out on the town.
