WHAT TO WEAR: Finals

May 20th, 2016 at 2:00am

It’s that time you dread but secretly welcome: finals. You dread it because this means non-stop studying and stress; but once finals are over, you can enjoy a much needed summer break. Unfortunately, many students understandably dress for comfort and not necessarily style during finals week. But this Fashionista stood out in a sea of sweats, leggings, T-shirts and sneakers in a chic, yet comfortable outfit.

This T-shirt dress is the perfect piece to wear for a late-spring day, when it’s warm enough to not wear a jacket but not hot enough to be sweating every moment you step outside. This Fashionista caught my eye because she didn’t look like everyone else. A T-shirt dress is something a little bit more unusual than your standard T-shirt and jeans. The style of the dress is also different from your average floral sundress; the maxi length and side slits make this dress a little chicer. However, this dress is still insanely comfortable and perfect for long days of studying—it’s basically like wearing a super long version of your favorite T-shirt.

The neutral palette of this look tied this Fashionista’s whole look together. Cream and gold is a true combination. Her gold watch is stylish and functional (can’t miss that exam!) and the other gold bracelets add a touch of sparkle to an otherwise super casual outfit. Her gold-rimmed sunglasses shade her eyes and are perfect for walking to and from the library.

Finally, a messy bun and tan flip flops are super easy to throw on—but still look stylish—and her mauve fingernails and red toenails add a subtle pop of color to her outfit. Altogether, this Fashionista is able to stay comfortable but still look cute during one of the most stressful weeks of the year. In my opinion, looking a little more pulled together helps with the productivity. Happy studying!

One Simple Change: Heading out to celebrate after your final exam? Throw on a statement necklace and a pop of lip color and this outfit is instantly a little more glam.
