Despite the rather surprising early heat wave that struck New England through the first couple weeks of March, the weather has been pretty chilly all through April. I personally enjoy longer periods of cooler weather in the springtime because of my very strong love for cozy accessories, and I have definitely taken advantage of these brisk April days to showcase this love! When I spotted this Fashionista walking outside of UCONN’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences building, I knew that I had found a another fan of cold weather accessories.
One of my favorite looks that has been incredibly popular this past season was the pairing of shorts with tights and a cute pair of shoes. The Fashionista that I ran into is a prime example of how adorable and stylish this look can be. Starting off with a sexy black lace shirt paired with a nicely contrasting red boyfriend cardigan, the Fashionista adds in a tights-and-shorts combo that makes the outfit truly unique. She then adds her own personality through accessory choices. She picked out a very cute pair of light brown lace-up oxfords, a warm patterned scarf, a long gold necklace and a large pair of sunglasses. This Fashionista truly works her look right down to her very tightly-encased toes.
Tighten things up in your own looks this week, Fashionistas. There are only so many more weeks that wearing this totally awesome look will be possible, and I suggest that you take full advantage of it! If you're looking to match your accessories with ones similar to this Fashionista, I suggest looking at this pair of oxfords from Topshop, this pair of tights from Witchery, this cardigan from J.Crew, and this adorable necklace from Max & Chloe. However, there are thousands of options available in each of these accessory categories, so cater to your own individual loves!
If you are looking for more spring-appropriate alternatives, I would suggest a pair of cutout oxfords, like this pair from ModCloth, a lacy pair of tights, like this one from Bardot and a simple silk scarf, like this one from Van Mildert.
