WHAT TO WEAR: School Stress Fad

Let’s face it: with the pressure of finals coming up and the long nights spent studying (not to mention the endless cups of coffee we’re obnoxiously drinking), looking cute in the morning is the last thing on all our minds. I know we can all say we’ve caught ourselves in sweaters and sweatpants more than a few times. Who can blame you? It’s stress season, but don’t let stress be your only fashion fad. When you’re feeling lazy this stress season, just remember that an oversized plaid flannel will never fail you! It’s a simplistic way of dressing up an outfit while giving you that cute effortless feel.

A style that has been in stores such as Forever 21 is the flannel with cute sayings on the back, like this one! It’s perfect for school and definitely gives off that Style Guru vibe. How this Fashionista styles her plaid gives off a completely simple but chic look. The oversized flannel paired over a cute simple black romper conveys a comfortable yet stylish feel. Wearing pieces that can be dressed up (like the romper) with pieces that are dressed down compliment each other extremely well. It’s a perfect outfit to study in the library or go on a coffee break with your friends!

If you’re feeling like you want to make a little more effort this morning, pair this outfit with a statement choker. Or, if you’re feeling like you need to mourn your GPA, opt for black. Finally, if you want a little splash of color, a maroon velvet choker will tie this look together perfectly!
