The fall semester is officially underway and we are already starting to see students flock to the library in numbers. While underclassmen are finding their favorite spots to hit the books, many of us are getting together with friends and classmates for study sessions and group projects. Why suffer studying alone when you can do it with people who feel the exact same way? But, do not be fooled here people. Despite popular belief, the library is not a place for gray sweatsuits and that grandpa sweater you tried to stuff in your backpack behind your chemistry textbook. Not familiar with the term “dress nice, test nice?” Well, you are now.
While the weather in New York is still a bit fickle, we can take solace knowing our shorts and tank tops are okay for a little longer. This Fashionista certainly has the right idea sporting a lightweight top and a pair of bright chinos. Spending the day in the library means dressing for comfort but still making it clear you are there to make a stylistic statement. Her outfit oozes preppy, showing off a classic and put together look.
Whether you are meeting your study group in the most popular study spot on campus or in a smaller study area, fashion comes first…well, studying comes first with fashion in a very close second. This Fashionista’s Longchamp tote is a great way to lug around books and a computer. Her gold watch also adds a pop of color and is the perfect, simple accessory for an extended study sesh.
Don’t let the idea of long days in the library keep you from putting on different pieces that express your inner Fashionista/o. Looking good makes you feel good which is a great way to get motivated!
One Simple Change: Many study areas are kept at pretty cold temperatures. Add a cardigan to drape around your shoulders or tuck away in your bag if it gets too chilly.
