With the midterm season that feels like it’s never ending and then final season just around the corner, it’s understandable that many of us students get discouraged and feel uninspired when getting dressed in the morning. I mean, who really wants to dress up head to toe for the library, anyways?
It is important to note, however, that you don’t need to leave the house with hours of mirror time spent in this busy season to look good. But you do not also need to look like a slob, either. This Fashionista shows us how to spruce up a casual outfit for midterm season, keeping it simple yet exciting.
On her bottom half, she wears a plain pair of black jeans and black boots. You cannot go wrong with these two items, as they can be worn with absolutely everything. On top, her boyfriend sheer top is key. It is baggy and comfortable looking to help you last through hours upon hours in the library. Its patterned details and bold colour, however, make it more interesting than the plain oversized button-down. For shirts similar to hers, check out American Apparel’s classic sheer tops. She tops off the look with another simple touch, which is jewelry. Jewelry is the perfect addition when you have no time whatsoever to put together an interesting outfit. Clasp on a necklace or throw on a statement ring to add colour and interest. The best thing about jewelry is you can put it on as you’re leaving the door or even throw it in your pocket if you’re time is that tight and put it on later.
The moral of the story is that you don’t need to let midterm season get you down in all domains in life. They say if you look good, you’ll feel good too, so why not put that to the test, dress it up a bit when hitting the library, and see if you’ll be put into an overall better mood.
One Simple Change: After those midterms, go out and celebrate with friends! You can wear your sheer oversized top with a skirt and you’ll be good to go for a fun night out.
