How to dress for finals

The time is coming. A time where stress hits it’s peak, motivation is lacking, sleep is nonexistent, and the ability to function as a normal human being is a far off concept. Yes, the time is coming – finals. For most of us, when finals time rolls around the thought of trying to look presentable is the last thing on our mind. However, that doesn’t always have to be the case. I’m not saying you need to dress to your nines by any means, but looking like road-kill is avoidable. So, with that being said, here are a few tips on how to go from finals creep to finals chic.


For Girls

Alright, I know during finals time *most* of us are up late studying and possibly stress eating. For the other half, those binge watching Netflix, these tips can apply to you too. So first things first, comfort is key. Contrary to popular belief, it’s possible to look cute while being comfortable. The best go to outfit for me is definitely some leggings with an oversized sweatshirt. Now, dressing up this outfit is super simple. All you really have to do is add a scarf – simple, but does the trick. For shoes: boots, boots, and more boots. Let’s be real for a second, are there even any other shoe options in the cold other than boots? No, not really. As for your hair, anything will really work. To quote Drake, “Sweat pants, hair tied, chillin’ with no make-up on. That’s when you’re the prettiest, I hope that you don’t take it wrong.” So yeah, pretty sure Drake covered that area perfectly. Hopefully this helps you out when the awfulness that is finals reaches us.


For Guys

I’m going to go ahead and add a disclaimer at the beginning of this due to the fact that I’m a girl and I don’t know ~exactly~ what to tell you guys what to wear, but here’s my best shot at it. So, taking a step into your guys’ shoes, I think that the best outfit for you guys to wear while accomplishing comfort and style would be something along the lines of this. First, joggers; I can only assume that they’re comfortable due to the fact that more than half of you wear them on a daily basis (shout out to you guys). Next, a hoodie will suffice. If you guys really wa

nt to go over the top, beanies are definitely a thing you can wear, like, no one is stopping you. As for shoes, whatever you find comfy. Flip-flops? Do it. Nikes? Have at it. House shoes? No shame. I’m pretty sure that’s the extent of what you guys need to worry about, but again, I’m no expert on how you guys dress.

What to wear for finals

Hopefully this helps you guys out – if not, that’s super awkward, so, yeah. Happy finals!
