WHAT TO WEAR: Midterms

What to Wear

I’ve learned to treat the dreaded midterm season like a double-edged sword — it’s miserable for the obvious reasons but also means spring break, the light at the end of the tunnel, is literally right around the corner. Battling sleep deprivation with an endless stream of coffee also means you’ll be spending way too many hours in Bobst. While it may be tempting to roll out of bed, head for that Macro exam and then shoot straight back to the library without changing out of your sweatpants, you’ll probably feel better about yourself if you’re comfortable but don’t look like a total slob.

Dani was dressed in a loose fitting pair of harem pants from Aritzia and a simple basic pullover from Brandy Melville. On a warmer day in March, she was wearing a black Mackage leather jacket in lieu of a winter coat. A pair of casual Jeffrey Campbells with a small heel and her House of Harlow 1960 pendant necklace keep the outfit from seeming too simple or coming off as too comfortable.

To get this look, start with a slouchy pair of pleated, tapered pants. They’re a great alternative to tight, sometimes constricting skinny jeans. Try an airy, soft tee such as this chartreuse one by Alexander Wang. For something a little more detailed go with this draped tee from Urban Outfitters. A great big tote bag is perfect for schlepping around notebooks, your laptop and endless stacks of study guides. This brown leather shopper tote from Zara is perfect just for that. You can find Dani’s exact necklace here, but for a similar look try something gold and simple like this Bing Bang necklace.

One Simple Change: Swap the tee with a fancier top such as this French Connection poppy colored peplum top for a more structured look that can be worn for a night out.
