Staying Fresh For Finals Week

You can sacrifice your time for studying, but don’t sacrifice your time for fashion.

While the beginning of the holiday season can be fun for most people, for college students it only means that finals week is near. Those projects, papers, and exams everyone has been dreading are near and nothing else is on your mind more than not failing everything or living to tell the tragic tales of finals week. One thing you don’t have to sacrifice, though, is your style. This is because there are ways to at least look like you’re halfway sane during the last few weeks of classes.

Don’t let go of your morning routine

If you’re the type of person who puts outfits together the day before school, continue to do that throughout the last few weeks. By taking a little break from studying to iron or hang up your clothes, you’re less likely to succumb to the stress that is finals. If you’re not someone who typically plans outfits beforehand, doing so will keep you more organized and also give you fewer things to worry about. This is because you’ll already have an idea of what you’re wearing and won’t just throw on the nearest graphic tee.

Buy something new

While the last thing on anyone’s mind is to spend the little money you may have, wearing something you just bought can make you excited to put future outfits together. If you went Black Friday shopping and bought something for yourself, wearing the item to class will begin to make you feel like yourself again and will increase your chance of wanting to look good the rest of the week. If you don’t have the time or funds to go shopping, though, you could peruse your closet to see if there’s anything you haven’t worn yet in a public setting.

Bring athleisure to your wardrobe

Athleisure, a trend that allows you to be comfortable and chic, is a great way to look your best with minimal effort. Wearing items like dad hats, leggings and sweatshirts allow you to stay warm without sacrificing looking good. Athleisure can also create the mystique that you’re so put together during this time that you’re making an effort to exercise. No one needs to know about the fact that you’ve had cookies for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
