How To: It’s so exciting making that first shopping trip for spring clothes. There are so many different looks to pull off; the possibilities are endless! This year it’s all about colors and prints. Don’t be afraid to go crazy in the color department. Have fun with it! This Fashionista loves to look at what’s fashionable and then adapt to her own personality and style. To accomplish a similar look first start off with the perfect spring skirt. High-waisted skirts are timeless. To find one similar, check out Urban Outfitters. The next step is finding the perfect shirt to match. When wearing color be cautious to not over do it. If you have a patterned shirt, match with a simple top, that way you don’t take away from the skirt. A crop top is great to pair with a high- waisted skirt. Crop tops have been in and are still in for this summer and spring season. Showing just a little midriff makes the outfit classy, yet chic. Look for ones at TOBI. The last part of the outfit is adding that little bit off sparkle. A long necklace layered necklace is the perfect touch to the outfit. The flowered necklace that this Fashionista is wearing is great for the spring! Forever 21 has a great selection of flowered necklaces.
