WHAT TO WEAR: Midterms

What to Wear

You know that amazing feeling when you’re dressed cute, and feeling confident that an A is right around the corner? If not, now you will! Midterms leave everyone feeling sluggish and depressed. However, dressing cute and comfy for midterms can boost your confidence, while also improving your mood. We all know that rolling out of bed at the crack of dawn seems unimaginable — so let creating your outfit be your inspiration to get up and going! This way you can rock your campus in style and still ace that test. People will envy your ability to maintain your fabulous style around a dreadful and sleepless week of studying.

This Fashionista looks super smart and very “in the know.” She throws on a comfy white tee and a scarf to keep her warm. She even sports a white watch to make her look that much more sophisticated. These accessories will always add an extra ‘pop’ to your outfit. She layers her outfit with a two-tone blouse that I couldn’t help but notice. You can buy a trendy, button-down like hers right here from Urban Outfitters. She also wears heather grey leggings that you can purchase  here from Nordstrom; they’re very comfortable, and easy to match with anything. She rocks gray Converse sneakers here that are comfortable walking shoes, and the perfect way to step away from that same pair of shoe you throw on every day. Switch it up a little and throw on a pair of Vans, Toms, Keds or Converse because these shoes match with everything and are always in style.

Once you’ve nailed the cute outfit, the last part of your morning routine is trying to tame your hair before running out the door. This Fashionista rocks a wide knot headband that is totally in style, and selling in many stores. You can get one here from Forever 21. Try it in different colors, patterns and prints. This headband can be worn with a bun, braided hair, with your hair down, natural or anything really! Thanks to this Fashionista, bed head is no longer a nightmare, and midterms will now be a success.

One Simple Change: If you want to go treat yourself to some shopping after a stressful midterm, but want wear a similar outfit — try just swapping the leggings for something else. Add some sugar and spice to your outfit with a pair of colored denim jeans, and you will sure look nice. My personal favorite jeans are coral colored from Gap, and you can buy a similar pair here their website.
