WHAT TO WEAR: Library

Let’s be real; exams begin after the first week of classes and don’t stop until finals. If you’re anything like me, you’re already swamped with work. All of the reading, papers and lab reports mean it’s time to hit the library. You may be exhausted from all of those late nights of highlighting and note-taking, but that doesn’t mean you should look like it.

Luckily, this Fashionista has you covered. Her outfit strikes the perfect balance between put together and comfortable. The outfit centers around her graphic sweatshirt, a trendy piece that can stand on its own. A statement top requires few other accessories or elements. This makes it easy to create a head to toe look that will take you through an all-nighter or two.

This Fashionista smartly pairs her sweatshirt with a collared shirt, which dresses up the look. Take a page out of her book by choosing a pastel layer to add an unexpected pop of color. The outfit comes together with a classic cross-body bag and worn in combat boots—trusted basics in any Fashionista’s wardrobe. Leaving the accessories simple is a must to minimize distractions and keep you from fidgeting while hitting the books. The outfit is casual enough to wear at the library, but this Fashionista’s finishing touches allow you to escape the stacks and grab coffee or head to class without looking frumpy.

One Simple Change: Do you have weekend plans? No problem! Swap the combat boots out for a pair of heeled booties for weekend wear that’s ready for a casual brunch.
