WHAT TO WEAR: Finals

Finals wear are probably the hardest outfits to put together because at this point in the school year you are either half alive or you have managed to embrace the literal form of “I just woke up like this.” To me, and to this Fashionista, finals wear does not necessarily mean having to conform to an all pajama look, or having to sacrifice your style for something that makes you feel comfortable enough to sit through hours of exams. Instead, it means having the perfect balance of style and comfort because if all else fails, you know you still looked good doing it.

The key to a successful comfortable, yet wearable look is oversized pieces. Yes, oversized pieces can quickly go horribly wrong, but when you are picking out these non form-fitting pieces, you have to make sure that they still fit according to your body type and shape. This Fashionista did just that through her looser fitting top and her pinstripe trousers. Although her bottoms are a bit more fitted than her top, the contrast in the fit of both pieces gives this look the perfect amount of balance and contrast between fit and form.

Another key component to putting together an outfit is trying to find the perfect pair of shoes that goes with the overall aesthetic of your look. Athlesuire is a trend that has come back full force, allowing Fashionistas and Fashionistos from all over the world the ability to mix business with pleasure. This Fashionista in particular decided to go with a pair of iconic adidas Superstars. These shoes are the perfect statement piece that can take your look to a whole new level of fashionably chic. As for accessories, this Fashionista decided to opt for a black leather backpack and blue-toned accessories that went with the overall color scheme of her ensemble.

One Simple Change: Now that finals are over, it is time to celebrate. To make a comfortable ensemble more appropriate for a night out, trade in your sneakers for a pair of lace-up shoes or heels. These will not only add height, but that perfect pair of heels will also make your look more appropriate for a long night of stress-free celebration.
