It is often said that April showers will bring May flowers — but what exactly will May bring? Finals, of course! Synonymous with PSBS (Post-Spring Break Stress) and night-after-night hyped up on coffee studying, finals week(s) is the epitome of stress for students everywhere. With no time to waste, but plenty of time to procrastinate, fashion is normally the last thing on anyone’s mind, and that’s probably why most of us are guilty of showing up to class in sweats, or even pajamas. With that being said, did you ever think that the perfect outfit may actually be a key to increasing your test scores? When you’re confident, fresh, and well dressed, who’s to say your brain won’t experience the same positive effects that your spirit does. Dressing up for finals isn’t about impressing your fellow peers — it’s about giving yourself that extra boost to get the job done right. Just like a shot of espresso awakens the mind, a casual, comfortable and stylish outfit will revive your mind, body, soul and brain after nights of little-to-no sleep and weeks of stress.
Putting together outfits for finals shouldn’t be anywhere near as stressful as studying for the actual tests. In fact, picking out ensembles should be a relaxing break from all the chaos you’ve most likely been experiencing with the school year coming to a close. Simply have fun, and look for cute ways to be confident and comfortable.
