The Horn's Andie Salazar gives you some tips on how to stay stylish and comfortable during finals season.
This semester, don’t let finals turn you into a fashion disaster. Invest in these tried-and-true pieces to keep yourself stylish, comfortable and ready for those long nights in the PCL.
1. Cozy Cardigan
Comfy sweaters like this one from Urban Outfitters are perfect for warding off the cold air that inevitably can’t be escaped in any of UT’s libraries without overheating in the Central Texas spring weather. Slipping into a cozy sweater will put you in a comfortable state to ease (somewhat) the anxiety that goes hand-in-hand with final exams.
Forget the pajama pants. Just because you’re spending all your free time pouring over books doesn’t mean you need to look like a slob. Jeggings from Abercrombie & Fitch come in denim styles as well as fun colors and give you the flexibility to comfortably take your studies from a seat in a hard-backed chair to being curled up in a cushioned couch. You can even do jumping jacks should the late night delirium hit you.
3. The Stylish Coffee Mug To-Go
Jonathon Adler’s prints look great on pretty much any product, from iPhone cases to throw pillows. But for your finals purposes, resist the temptation to redecorate your entire apartment in the summer-time hues and stick with an On The Go Coffee Mug. These funky thermoses will add a little life to your pile of study materials while keeping your much-needed caffeine toasty.
4. Quirky Earbuds
Easy to take on the go and sure to put a smile on your face and that of the stressed student beside you, swing by Urban Outfitters for a pair of their unique headphones. From deliciously sweet gummy bears to flashy disco balls reminiscent of the parties you’re missing out on this weekend, to French fries oh-so-similar to those currently residing in the Wendy’s bag sitting before you. They have all types of options to stream your soothing study jams through.
