WHAT TO WEAR: Finals

WHAT TO WEAR: Finals

I see a red door and I want it painted black/No colors anymore, I want them to turn black/It’s not easy facing up when your whole world is black…”  The Rolling Stones’ lyrics resonate with pretty much every college student during this time of year—RIP social life, sanity and possibly GPA. It’s finals (with a capital F). However, that “F”-inal can be turned into “fabulous”  or “fashionable”—feeling #dead? Work that funerary feel with fashion’s favorite shade.

This f-otographed (too far?) Fashoinista was seen rocking black like it was nobody’s business. With the unusually warm weather for this time of year, it gives Fashionistas and Fashionistos a rad chance to be creative with their seasonal wear. For this Fashionista, she played up the impending doom of December due dates with her all-black, cut-out mesh top and sheer lace skirt—no hoodie or sweatpants on sight. No doubt her dark, drape-y layers are rep’in’ her taken-too-soon sleep schedule and socializing.

She accessorized her black-on-black lace-layering look with a black leather backpack for some additional scholastic chic and contrasting texture. Though there’s hardly been a flurry of snow, there’s been plenty of slush on the sidewalks. Dressing for anti-slush success while tying in her backpack, the Fashionista’s feet sported a pair of Beatles-esque Chelsea boots that pulled together her look’s eccentric-cool vibe.

Who said dressing as dead as you feel inside (thanks, finals week!) means pullovers for a seven days straight? Take the advice of The Rolling Stones and paint it black, paint it all black; make your finals week style a statement, and go out with a bang before break!
