It’s midterm season, meaning the time has come for countless hours filled with endless coffee and the dreaded all nighters. If you’re anything like me, exam season is when looking good is seemingly always put on the back burner to make time for those prized extra five minutes of sleep or last minute cramming before bolting to class. If there is one word I could choose to describe how I like to style my wardrobe during times like these, it would be simple. Comfy clothes can be more than the classic oversize T-shirt and Nike Pros and will have everyone on campus fooled into thinking that you didn’t just get up 15 minutes ago after snoozing your alarm for the third time.
To rock the ultimate comfy look, my style essentials always include pieces that are versatile and of high quality and material. Invest in a good pair of denim jeans that can be worn for any occasion day in and out. Search for your holy grail pair so comfy that you won’t be daydreaming from the moment you put them on about when you get to take them off—trust me, your thighs will thank you. For tops, my favorite genre of colors typically falls in the neutrals range, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a classic black top? Shoes, hair, and makeup are where a girl loves to switch things up. Use the versatility of the outfit as your base and accessories paired with your beauty routine to tone the outfit toward the occasion you’re rocking it for.
The shoes I am wearing for this look are my absolute favorite if I’m in a rush from getting back from class and in a pinch for time while changing for meetings where I need to look more presentable. Instead of completely changing your entire look, this is where switching out key pieces in your outfit and general wardrobe becomes a life saver. These nude heeled booties are super trendy and extremely comfortable for trekking around campus in a rush as well—can you say bonus? So let your hair down, put on your favorite lip gloss and shoes, and see just how easy it is to completely transform any simple comfy outfit from lecture ready to “Happy hour, here I come.”
