The best thing about wearing dresses is how easy of an outfit it is to put together. Just add some accessories and you’ve got a complete outfit! My personal favorites are maxi dresses which make a flirty and comfortable outfit perfect for a spring day. This Fashionista mastered the complete look with her black and white leopard print maxi. She paired the dress with a denim button-up shirt, simple black sandals and some gold jewelry to dress it up. The way she accessorized and added the denim shirt complemented the maxi dress to create the perfect spring outfit.
Name: Stephanie Hoffmeier
CollegeFashionista: What has been your style inspiration for the start of the spring season?
Stephanie Hoffmeier: I love looking at all the amazing outfits from Coachella and other music festivals. All the celebrities look great but even photographs of street styles have given me inspiration. Seeing all of the draped fabrics and fun flower sunglasses make me really excited for spring and summer.
CF: What is your go-to outfit in the summer?
SH: I like to keep it simple with cute jean shorts and a T-shirt or a summer dress. Both outfits are easily to put together and are perfect for any casual occasion.
CF: Where are some of your favorite places to go shopping for spring?
SH: I really like Forever 21 and although everyone shops there you can still find really cute stuff for a good price. I also like places like H&M and sometimes Urban Outfitters. They have really cute shorts even though they are pricey.
How To: Keep it simple, like this Fashionista did, with this solid color jersey maxi dress from H&M. Pair it with gladiator sandals and statement necklace and you’re ready for the day! Maxi dresses are also easy to dress up for more formal occasions such as a date night or a night out in the city with your girls. This Hidden Gem Velvet Maxi Dress from Nasty Gal is perfect for dressing up when worn with heels. The sheer bottom allows you to show off your legs for a flirty look!
