End of Term Blues, Greens, and Pinks

The decision to wake up in the morning is becoming increasingly difficult as the term comes to a close and sweatpants seem to be the only appealing article of clothing in your closet. Your brain is clogged with information and there simply isn't space for fashion choices.

Karl Lagerfeld once said: "Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life, so you bought some sweatpants".

There's something about sweatpants that smells like defeat (not just because you couldn't run as many miles on the treadmill as you'd hoped) and the stench follows you throughout the day as each task becomes more and more daunting. The desire to select an outfit diminishes as your internal anguish translates into your wardrobe. You don't have time to fix your hair, so what's the point of wearing something cute? Your patience is limited to a quick dash of eyeliner and perhaps some lipstick, but somehow, you still don't feel refreshed.

The reason: Exams.

During exams, fashion dies. We hibernate in the library and study for consecutive hours devouring one coffee after another to stay awake. But, we CANNOT allow this to happen. It's time to stop letting your exam stress dictate your fashion choices, or lack thereof.

Let's all take a moment to remember that it's spring. The warm weather is approaching, the grass is getting greener, and the sun is getting brighter. It's time for pastels and bold florals. Don't let your mood permeate your wardrobe, but invite your wardrobe to save you from your misery. Bright colours release endorphins and can potentially stimulate your brain flow. Colours are known to ignite a variety of emotions in human beings, so get rid of those blacks and greys in exchange for oranges and pinks. The brighter the wardrobe, the brighter your future.

Good Luck!
