Spring is in the air, and with the rise in temperature, Chicagoans are celebrating the simple things in warm weather fashion.
This Fashionista sports the three pieces key in any Chicago College student's spring time success: sunglasses, short sleeves and skinny jeans. You never know when the Lake Michigan winds are going to pick up, and being caught in shorts and a tank top is a sure fire way to catch a cold, even when the temperature is above 50. She chooses to enjoy a jacket-less look and pairs her skinny jeans with a loose, short sleeve button up. Blouses like this are not only great to pair with a pair of jeans, like this Fashionista does, but as summer roles in, they double great as a quick throw on over your bandeau swimsuit with shorts, or tucked into a whimsy skirt. You can find comfy blouses like this at stores such as Gap, Bloomingdales, and Urban Outfitters which are great for any closet this spring regardless of if you are a preppy princess, girly girl, or trendsetter. They also come in a variety of styles such as this chic neutral option from Nordstrom or this option with a funky twist from Anthropologie.
She adds a pop of color with her bright red belt and a pop of texture with her studded gladiator sandals which add some flair to her simply chic ensemble. The classic look is accented by a pair of classic Ray Bans, and an cross-body bag perfect for your cell, ID, and a planner.
Hint: She leaves a few buttons open to display her black tank underneath which ties her top in with her crisp black jeans, which ties her outfit's color palette together.
