What to wear during exams week

What to wear during exams week

I remember when I was at university; I had some exams in December and the last thing on my mind was my outfits.  I know that everyone is working hard to get good grades, but just because you have a lot to study and revise for does not mean that you should abandon dressing well. Read on for some tips and outfit ideas that I think are comfortable, stylish and easy to put together during exam season.

Plan your outfits the week before

I always plan my outfits on the Sunday before exam week; I look for pieces that I believe will go together and could be mixed and matched in several ways so that I don’t have to worry about what I am going to wear on the day of my exam.

My exam week clothing list:

1. Three Pairs Of Jeans

Jeans are a staple piece; they go with everything. I chose three pairs of jeans because I can alternate them during the week and because they are comfortable. Make sure your jeans are comfortable because seating in a pair of tight jeans for two to three hours may be very uncomfortable.

2. Statement T-Shirt

Statement tops are so comfortable and can make a casual outfit, chic. They come in several colours and are available in numerous stores such as: H&M, ASOS, boohoo, pretty little thing etc.

3. Hoodie/ Sweatshirt

Hoodies and Sweatshirts are another staple for me; they are so comfortable and when styled with the right pieces, you look effortlessly chic. Sometimes the exam hall can be cold, so a hoodie or a sweatshirt will keep you warm.

4. Trainers

I love the black and white Vans Classic Sk8 Hi, the pink Fila Disruptor II and the Nike Air Max 97 Smokey Mauve because they are stylish and comfortable. The colours of these trainers go with so many things which makes it easy to pair with outfits. Trainers can be expensive at times, but fortunately stores like JD, footlocker, footasylum and ASOS sell these types of trainers at a cheaper price.

I hope that all your exams go well and let me know what your favourite pieces to wear during exam season are.
