STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Beanie Bae

In the midst of finals week with a long holiday break upon us, most students forgo style for sweatpants and pajamas, but what about us Fashionistas and Fashionistos who don’t want to sacrifice fashion for comfort and warmth?

You can certainly dress down for finals week, but fool others into thinking you put thought into your outfit by adding certain accessories. For example, wearing a cool pair of joggers (aka classy sweatpants) with a baggy T-shirt may seem like a sloppy outfit, but adding a cute pair of sneakers and an oversized necklace makes the outfit look polished and chic, when in reality, you’re wearing sweats like everyone else.

This Fashionisto is comfortable and fashionable in a super soft T-shirt that stands out underneath a heavier piece of neutral outerwear. This is a fairly casual outfit that’s perfect for long hours of studying in the library, but the wearer doesn’t look sloppy.

Wearing a beanie can add an extra level of style to any outfit. For girls, your hair looks amazing coming out of the hat, and for guys, it shows that you care about fashion and know how to complete a look without looking slightly homeless. Another great way to add a certain level of chicness to an outfit is to pair your beanie with a stylish pair of classic sunglasses.
