As winter semester comes to a close and spring semester starts, the atmosphere around campus begins to shift, and so do the various styles present on campus. No longer are there heavy winter jackets paired with riding boots. Instead, you can expect to see flowy skirts and dresses paired with sandals and flats. This next Fashionista’s ensemble exemplifies the spring style that is present here in Ann Arbor. For her outfit, she cleverly layered a maxi dress with a crop top to accommodate Michigan’s unpredictable weather.
