5 Must-Have Accessories For Winning At Midterms

by Kelsey Morgan

 

It’s already been proven that dressing to the nines helps to boost your confidence, and then, in turn, being confident helps you to perform better throughout the day… so with Midterms slowly encroaching like a dark mist over the distant mountains, dressing to impress is just another thing you can add to your repertoire of study notes, energy drinks, and (possibly) wine. Lots and lots of wine.

This includes clothes, accessories, whatever have you, that makes you feel good about yourself. Maybe that’s a ballgown, maybe that’s PJs, it doesn’t matter—do what you have to for yourself, anyone else be damned. It’s your grades, after all.

 

1. Phone Cases

All hail the mighty iPad or Android Tablet, those which are basically just computers that will fit into your already-stuffed backpack. Or, even better, if you’re like me and don’t like to carry around all of a laptop, tablet, and phone, let’s be real here—Apple, in its ridiculous state of mind and trendy checklist needs, came out with the iPhone 7 Plus, which is basically a tablet for anyone with small hands. Or big hands. What I’m trying to say is, it’s huge and gaudy and I need it.

In terms of cases, I’m currently obsessed with this whole fabric wallet/case combo. Because, just as I don’t care to carry around my entire technology library, the ability to free up some room in my purse is nice too. More room for perfume, or a small dog, or my giant iPhone.

 

2. Get-Psyched Playlists

Just like how a good outfit gets you in a good mood, obviously so does a killer playlist designed to boost your endorphins and prepare you to take on the world.

Or, well, your Econ Midterm. Whether you make one of your own, or tap into the endless sea of kick-butt playlists available online, deafening yourself with a Midterm Pre-Spring Break playlist blast right before a test will definitely get you pumped up, not to mention the residual eardrum buzzing might later work as a good ambient-noise generator when you’re hanging over your bubble sheet.

 

3. Outfits

Eventually I was going to talk about cute outfits. Obviously. It’s only been the main repeating factor in all of this. Maybe I should have mentioned outfits first? Nah, I prefer to keep you on your toes, like, “what the heck is she going to talk about next?”

Don’t worry about it, just keep reading.

With spring on its way and your legs possibly needing a little bit of sunlight, why not ring in the warm weather with a pair of new shorts? Or a cute sundress and strappy heels? Not only will you be alerting everyone to your pending Spring Break vacay (foreshadowing to a future point—stop, don’t scroll ahead!) the chill of the lecture hall on your bare arms/legs might just be the extra zap of energy you need to keep your head clear mid-test.

 

4. Bags

Need something big enough to fit your handful of an iPhone? To carry a jacket if maybe you jumped the gun a bit on how “spring-timey” it actually was outside?
