Best dressed at the library: Midterms edition
Who doesn’t dress like they’ll meet the love of their life on the fourth floor
We’re at that point in the semester where students are desperately applying for extensions, the library mask police are prowling the crowded library floors, and temperatures are rising to a balmy nine degrees (as opposed to five).
While most people are heading to study (or let’s be honest, stare out the fourth floor window and contemplate life) wearing the respectable trio of a puffer, massive jeans and a tote bag, a hardy few braved George Square in something a bit more fun. After all, who says impending deadlines have to put a damper on style?
Here’s what some students are currently wearing to Edinburgh’s Main Library. If you’re wondering why there aren’t many men featured, we are too – come on guys, it’s not hard to put on something besides blue jeans and a quarter zip.

Making the trek to the Main Library in the height of midterms is hard enough with the brutalist architecture and cold winds, so shoutout to the people whose outfits add a little colour and brightness to our study sessions— your style efforts are much appreciated.
