Even though finals conclude every semester, they always seem to come as a surprise. Although we wish they would disappear, denying their existence doesn’t solve the problem. On the day of the final your go-to outfit may be a university sweatshirt and some form of sweatpants. While this option provides ultimate comfort, it also caters to a mid-final nap session. Stay awake, alert and still achieve a laid back, casual vibe with your new go-to look: denim paired with an oversized flannel.
This Fashionista knows how to take finals in style. She wears a men’s flannel paired with a classic pair of dark-wash skinny jeans and Sperry Top-Siders. This comfortable yet put together ensemble puts her in the right mindset during the final, and allows her to go out and celebrate afterwards. Oversized flannels are great pieces to wear due to their versatility and comfort. Throw one on over a T-shirt or tank and you’ll feel like you’re wearing a zip-up hoodie. To complement the relaxed flannel, this Fashionsita wears a glass-faced, men’s-inspired watch—the perfect accessory for finals.
To create your own finals look, use this Fashionsita as inspiration. Find an oversized flannel that matches your style and pair it with skinny jeans. If you want a looser bottom, wear a semi-fitted flannel partially tucked into boyfriend jeans. Avoid piling on bracelets to your wrists so you are free to write. Instead, try a fun necklace or a statement ring worn on your non-dominant hand. No matter what you wear to your final, make sure you feel confident in it. When you feel good about yourself, you perform better. Besides, who wants to waste time change after taking a test to go out and celebrate? Happy finals!
One Simple Change: Swap the jeans for denim cut-offs, add a pair of shades and bring a tote bag with a blanket to go chill on the quad.
