It’s here. It’s happening. The worst time of the semester is finals week. College students across the nation are walking around, dreary-eyed, chugging obscene amounts of caffeine and dreaming of better days aka winter break. It is truly difficult to gather up the motivation to dress well when all you want to do is sleep, but you can’t because you have to stay up cramming five months of physics equations into your head.
Fashionistas, this is when minimalist chic becomes your best friend. Leave the accessories in your dorm room, throw on your favorite (and most comfortable) pair of jeans and team them with a sweater that is both relaxed and trendy.
This Fashionista manages to look put together despite the horrible weather and sea of exams with her edgy skull sweater and classic denim jeans. She completes the casual look with some knee-high boots that flatter the legs and keep toes warm.
If you don’t want to look like a slob in sweatpants during finals week, emulate this Fashionista’s simple and study-friendly ensemble by wearing a cute sweater on top of jeans. I am absolutely obsessed with the H&M x Isabel Marant black and white loop sweater. But if you want a more low-key sweater, check out these knit pullovers or this cat sweatshirt. For jeans, I really dig these skinny Levi Brand Jeans. Or, for the daring hearts, pair the sweater with some leather pants. The H&M x Isabel Marant sweater would look amazing with leather bottoms. To finish up the outfit, slip into some sturdy boots. It is wintertime, after all.

One Simple Change: For warmer weather, opt for a cool graphic T-shirt instead of a sweater. Keep the jeans.
