It is official: spring has finally sprung! Once the weather hit above 65 degrees this week in Hamilton, the campus became crawling in coeds sporting in their beloved seersucker, aviators and flip-flops that have been wasting away in the back of closets for the past few wintry months. The hottest spring trends seen at New York Fashion Week such as pleats, pencil skirts and (of course) pastels are in full force here at Colgate.
Just like Easter egg hunts, daffodils and sun showers, incorporating pastel shades into your wardrobe is a rite of spring. If loud, “look-at-me” colors aren’t your style, then this season’s pale lavenders, icy blues, blush pinks and light yellows are calling your name. This darling Fashionista shows how to mix and match sherbet hues for a casual and cute look for class, a girl’s day out or just enjoying the warm weather on an afternoon stroll. The combination of the striped sailor tee, teal chino shorts and beige flats give off a ladylike yet playful vibe. To imitate her look for when the sun goes down, swap out the shorts for a pair of skinnies in a sweet sorbet shade. For a fancier event, classic prepster retailers like Vineyard Vines and Lilly Pulitzer have countless items from dresses to tote bags to bathing suits in these angelic shades to ease into the spring to summer transition. So, embrace these charming pastels to represent one of the most adored and timeless spring fashion trends!
