Just the other day I tweeted about how beautiful the weather was in Bloomington but how challenging it is to dress appropriately for it. When you leave for class in the morning, it’s still in the forties and a jacket is necessary; but by midday, it’s in the upper sixties and you’re sweating and hating yourself for wearing that jacket. This leaves us debating whether or not we want to freeze in the morning or sweat during the day.
Would you believe me if I told you I found an answer to this seemingly solution-less problem? Okay, so maybe I didn’t find the solution, but this Fashionisto definitely did. Long-sleeves on top and shorts on bottom is the perfect balance to keep you warm in the morning while allowing you to not overheat in the afternoon.
This Fashionisto paired a plaid Gap button-down with slim-fit shorts from Urban Outfitters to combat the changing weather. When the weather presents a wardrobe challenge, don’t succumb to an old sweatshirt that you have to take on and off during the day. Wearing shorts allows your body to breath while long-sleeves keep you warm during the frosty mornings.
To complete his look, this Fashionisto picked a classic pair of Sperry Top-Siders to carry him through the day. When you’re out on campus all day, comfortable shoes are a necessity. Not only is it necessary to balance your wardrobe for the weather, but you should also try to balance style and comfort.
Hint: If you fear you won’t be warm enough with just a long-sleeve, throw on a knit infinity scarf. The scarf will protect your chest and neck from the wind to help prevent any springtime colds without being a burden to wear or carry around throughout the day.
