WHAT TO WEAR: Finals Week

What to Wear

The end of fall semester is always brewing with excitement: going home for break, seeing old friends and of course the most wonderful time of the year, Christmas. Unfortunately, the ending of a semester also implies exams, papers, long nights of studying and an endless flow of coffee.

Since classes are winding down and finals week is looming before us, what you’re wearing is more likely than not the last thing on your mind. While you may be tempted to roll into the exam room with your pajamas on, take a quick study break for some simple, yet chic, outfit ideas for exam week.

First things first: plan ahead. Make sure you plan your outfit the night before, or at least have a few ideas in mind, so that you’re not running around, trying to figure out what to wear right before your exam. Second, try to stay away from sweatpants and pajamas. While they are super comfortable, it’s just as easy to pull on a pair of leggings or jeans and be equally as comfy but also polished. Plus, you’ll be more likely to feel awake and focused during your exam if you’re dressed appropriately rather than making you wish you were back in bed.

Take a look at this Fashionista for some finals week outfit inspiration. Her outfit is stylish, yet casual and comfortable enough to make it through exam week. She paired a beige pair of pants with a simple white T-shirt, military jacket and a cozy knit scarf. To polish off her look she added a pair of sleek black boots. Now she’s ready to ace her finals!

One Simple Change: Switch up your look by changing out boots for a pair of colored flats!
