WHAT TO WEAR: Finals

For those of you spending your summer studying in the library, the idea of wearing “real” clothing lacks its natural luster. Thank Netflix, finals have arrived. It’s time to make a lasting impression that doesn’t involve a Panhellenic T-shirt or Nike running shorts.

The better you look, the better you feel and the more confident you will be. Over caffeinated and at risk for exhaustion, you’ll be surprised how amazing a loose dress and a dab of makeup can make you feel. Sitting in a lecture hall with two hundred other students can be nerve-racking. By embracing the combination of a dress and sneakers, you will glide past the awkward glances you may have gotten from your friends and future beaus, if you were still wearing yesterday’s sweats. Tie your hair up in a hassle-free high ponytail to complement your casual yet collected look.

Ready to dominate, this Fashionista wears a polka-dot trapeze dress with lace accents. She layers a strappy bralette underneath, adding depth to her monochromatic ensemble. In a pair of Chuck Taylor All Star high-top sneakers, her effortless sensibility makes an endearing statement. Her makeup is applied lightly, giving her the natural glow she needs to avoid a zombie-like demeanor during these tough times. For an extra boost, she wears a stunning silver Star of David necklace and a bold gold watch.

One Simple Change: Whether you aced your finals or just barely passed, what’s done is done. Grab the girls and celebrate your freedom by switching out those high-top sneakers for a chunky pair of mules. There’s nothing more satisfying than dancing the stress away.
