It’s quite scary to think that after what seemed to be an almost endless semester, we have finally reached the bittersweet moment of the spring season: finals. Speaking from my own experience, there’s no denying the fact that this is the most stressful time in college history (yikes!). But before you begin frantically memorizing the contents of your textbooks and lounging in your favorite sweatsuit, take a deep breath; for keeping your cool during finals week isn’t as intimidating as it seems. Whether or not you’ve fallen victim to an infamous case of procrastination, nothing beats the all-nighter blues more than a well thought out ensemble.
In the midst of preparing for my final exam drama, I caught a glimpse of this Fashionista who’s minimalistic look stood far apart from the sea of workout clothing that’s managed to take over my campus. While it’s oh so easy to settle for a pair of leggings and an oversize T-shirt for days spent cramming, there truly is no harm in always attempting to look composed. This Fashionista’s acid wash jeans and basic button-down are a fool-proof way to appear calm and collected during times of almost unbearable stress. While dressing the part of a relaxed Fashionista/o may not seem like the solution to acing your finals, I’ve found that sporting your favorite threads has the potential to boost your mood and ultimately your outlook on memorizing those note cards. With the final touches of some sleek jewelry, your comfiest sandals and an interesting take on the usual hair bun (as executed by this Fashionista), keeping your cool during final exams week will be a breeze!
One Simple Change: If you have your sights set on a casual date night, fear no more! Swap the button-down with a cute sleeveless top for a look perfect for a night with your special someone.
