It’s that time again: the days of procrastination and choosing a late night with friends over an evening with your books have caught up to you. Although many campuses aren’t quite as close to finals as the students here at the UO are, knowing how to stylishly dress for long days and nights in the library, coffee shop, or favorite study area is always a challenge.
The best advice I can offer for those endless days and nights of cramming is layering. You never know how the temperature will fluctuate (especially in the library), so it’s smart to be prepared. This Fashionista paired leggings (a stylish alternative to sweat pants), with an oversized sweater, scarf and faux leather jacket. Oversized sweaters are probably one of my favorite items because of easy breathability and movement, and scarves, well, you all know how I feel about scarves. Besides an incredibly versatile accessory, they are perfect for addition to an outfit with easy removal if necessary. I don’t know about you, but my feet are the first to get cold so boots are always the solution to this problem. Add a pair of over-the-knee socks to stay even warmer.
Hint: This look is not complicated and definitely does not have to be expensive. Add a pair of glasses, some red lipstick and a top knot (for dramatic effect), and you’ll be a chic library babe in no time.
