With January comes students’ least favourite time of year. The time when late nights are obligatory, coffee shakes are commonplace and the library is your home from home. I’m stressed, you’re stressed, its obviously exam time.
When the only time you can spare from revising is given to opening a can of Red Bull, you know times have got tough. It's then when you might be tempted to throw a sweater over your ‘jarmies as you head to the library and think ‘that’ll do’.
Its only when you get to the library, you’re rooting for your books or you’re skipping out for another coffee that you realise you’re in your teddy bear pyjamas, in front of other people, in public. Cue disapparation of any style kudos.
While no one should have the time to primp, groom or add finishing touches to perfect ensembles, exam season doesn’t need to mark the end of reason. Take a five-minute break from the grind to scroll through our options of style solving saviours to see you through these two-weeks of pain, sleet, snow and late nights.
Good luck with exams!
