There are two important qualifications for finals fashion. First of all, it has to be easy to grab and put on. Second of all, it has to be comfortable enough to withstand long critiques and exams. Buried under finals as we wrap up our last quarter here at SCAD, this Fashionista has nailed her version of finals fashion. She not only looks cool and calm, but she also looks like she is ready to ace those exams with stylish confidence.

A monochromatic look is an easy way to look put together, especially when you haven’t caught a wink of sleep. When choosing an outfit for finals, take a style tip from our Fashionista and keep it classic with a unified base for your outfit. Opting for a simple, layered tank top, flowy shorts, knee-high socks and studded boots in black, this Fashionista looks cohesive and casual. A pop of color in her red, plaid button-down shows off her bold personality and brightens the darkness of her outfit.

In addition to the shine from her studded boots, the rest of her accessories are effortlessly simple. A gold, long chained necklace is emphasized against the solid color of her tank top. Don’t be afraid to embrace solid colors because they are the perfect platform for your jewelry to shine. Lastly, her wrists are filled with neutral colored woven bracelets with small bead accents. These minimal accessories are the perfect complement to her edgy outfit, and they won’t get in the way during finals. This Fashionista proves mixing timeless fashion tricks and selecting one color can translate in to an eye-catching outfit perfect for class.

One Simple Change: I love a chic, all-black outfit, especially when getting ready for a casual date night. Following in this fashionista’s, maintain the edginess of this look by keeping the laid back accessories and plaid shirt. To turn your date night look up a notch, swap out her separates for a flirty black dress. This is a simple switch that can take this outfit from day to night.
