Almost mid-semester, the flowers start to blossom on the way to class. In the rush to internships or to class that we need in order to graduate, we see a change in season, and ultimately in outfits. Despite spring break being a month away, we are still forced to stay indoors. This Fashionista, with coffee in one hand and a Coach bag filled with textbooks in the other, knows that too well.
Photo bombing, as seen left, has been the trend since 2004. But the only trend I see on campus these days is the coming of hats and tribal jewelry for the spring semester. This Fashionista is sophisticated and classic chic in a black blouse, dark red metallic denim jeans and brown suede heels.
What instantly grabbed my eye was the red floppy hat and neckline jewelry that this Fashionista was sporting. The beaded necklace and dangling earrings layered onto her outfit can be used to make any outfit boho chic. Although the velour hat is worn throughout fall, the floppy hat can be versatile for spring. For Floridians, it is essential to keep the sun away from our eyes at the beach, while protecting against the afternoon heat.
When it’s too hot out to wear a scarf, take note and decorate your neckline with a black bead necklace from Debenhams. Dangling earrings, like these colorful tribal earrings, will play up any dull outfit. For a contrasting pop, a colorful velour hat from Bloomingdale’s (or from the thrifty website, Etsy) can bring out the classic, sophisticated chic you are aiming for.
Spotted: Michael Kors, Burberry and Donna Karan are all putting tribal touches onto their spring 2013 collections.
