Fashion Tips to Get You Through Finals Week

When you think of finals week, fashion probably isn’t the first thing to come to mind, but what you wear is definitely an integral part of one of the most stressful weeks of the year. Though there’s no real obligation to change out of your pajamas for your tests or studying in the library, do they really get you pumped to do your best work? Finals week is the last hurrah of the semester so go out with a bang. Don’t let your finals think they’ve won by compromising your style. Here are a few options for your finals week fashion that will keep you in that straight-A state of mind.


Comfortable and chic

Nothing’s worse than sitting through an already highly stressful situation and trying not to forget everything you’ve learned this semester, but all you can think about is how your jeans are slowly cutting off your circulation or how tight your shoes are. Your finals outfit should definitely be comfortable, but that doesn’t mean you have to look like a slob. Try throwing on an oversized sweater with leggings or joggers and a cool jacket for an effortlessly put together look that’s still comfy.

Your fave ‘fit

Everybody has that one go-to outfit in their closet that always works and looks good. Wearing your favorite outfit can give you an instant morale boost. If you look good, you’ll feel good, and probably do better on your tests, too. It’s all about confidence! Plus, it will cut down on the time spent trying to find an outfit in the morning because you already have an idea of what you want to wear. You can even use that extra time to get a bit more studying in before your test.

Dress for success

The more put together you look on the outside can make you feel more put together on the inside and help you feel more prepared to do your best work. Style is important in making a statement for yourself, so dress for where you plan on going in life not where you currently are (sleep-deprived, broke college student ready for finals to be over, am I right?). Dressing in a chunky sweater with a collared shirt underneath and a midi skirt or some dad-chic trousers and oxfords will help you channel your inner working girl.
