However, there are a few fashion statements that are guaranteed to make you look smarter: button-ups, pencil skirts, wide-rimmed glasses, and this bun. A serious center part, demure over-the-ear swoop, and low placement give this style a studious feeling. Pair it with red lips or bold eyes and you’ll look like a hot librarian.
