     During these last few weeks of school, you’ve endured countless final exams, projects, and tests for every class. You’ve been studying like crazy, fixing grades, and working all day and night to finish the year strong. After a monotonous year of uncertainty, injurious habits, and draining schedules, it’s safe to say that the approaching relaxation of summer can’t come soon enough. 

     Luckily, we are in the final stretch of this taxing year. The seniors’ last day came and went, and the rest of us only have a short week left. The finals rush is dying down and the hallway fashion scene is proving that students are ready for summer. Here are some highlights of students’ best final fashion impressions before they leave for the summer.

“ I really love the ‘90s style items. I love wearing puffers, bell-bottom jeans, slip dresses, and other pieces like that. I’m also really into florals right now, because I love wearing pretty floral dresses or tops and accessorizing them with cute rings, totes, hair accessories, like satin scarves and claw clips, and especially sunglasses,” Velpuri said.

“I love all of the spring trends this season, but my favorite would have to be all of the sorbet-toned clothing,” Avinash said. “I just love the colors because they remind me of spring. They look really vibrant and I think adding color to an outfit makes it look more put together and fun!”

“My favorite spring trend at the moment has to be small sunglasses and headscarves,” Miller said. “ I like spring fashion because it allows me to start to compile my summer outfits while having the freedom to express my style more. When spring hits, there are more floral patterns and bright colors, so I love to wear cute dresses and skirts!”
