WHAT TO WEAR: Shopping

What to Wear

Finals week is definitely stressful, but the week before finals is always the worst. Students have to juggle those final assessments, papers and presentations. They have to remember to turn in the internship and minor/major declaration forms that they put off all semester. Oh, and then there is preparing for the actual finals. It’s tough, but it makes the week after finals all the more rewarding. This week’s Fashionista was taking a break from the havoc, choosing to ease her mind with some retail therapy.

On her way to the mall, I spotted this Fashionista across campus. While she might have labeled me crazy for running up to her and then asking for her picture, I’m glad I put myself out there. From the high-waisted denim shorts to the black knee-high socks, I fell in love with her adorable outfit. She kept it fun with a printed top, but added some edge with the socks, black shoes and denim shorts.

One Simple Change: It happened to be 70 degrees outside when I took this photo, making the outfit a little too exposed for the current chilly weather. The denim shorts can still work with black tights instead of the socks. Also, a cute coat can be added to the ensemble to keep in the warmth without losing the cuteness. If you want to try some socks with the look, why not take it up a notch with some over the knee action? The over the knee looks, whether it’s with boots or socks, is a big trend this season! So next time when you are ready for a study break, try some of these tips by this Fashionista, and you’ll be sure to look ready to take on whatever finals week throws at you.
