Morgantown weather is a constant mystery. One day Fashionista/os are walking around campus enjoying the sunshine and rocking their long lost sundresses and sandals, and the next it looks like a hurricane settled over WVU. The trick to keeping up with the constant change, other than owning one of everything, is light (and in this case bright) layers. When I saw this Fashionista on campus, her bold colors definitely brightened my day. College students everywhere will agree that on dreary days, no wardrobe option seems more appealing than sweatpants, which is one of the reasons this fabulous Fashionista caught my eye. In a sea of gray and black outfits, this bright retro-inspired orange coat from Urban Outfitters was bound to stand out. Because it is lightweight and water resistant, a coat like this is a staple for any rainy spring day. The oversized buttons and navy detailing are also fun embellishments to the piece. Her blue leggings from Forever 21 add to her colorful look and meticulously match the trim of her jacket, leaving no piece of the outfit boring. Of course, no rainy day is complete without rain boots. These versatile navy boots are actually Crocs! Not being a Croc fan myself, I was surprised that I loved these cute lightweight boots. To (literally) top it all off, her yellow umbrella really completes the effect of the look, making her the brightest Fashionista I’ve seen all week!
Hint: Don’t fall into the tempting trend of oversized sweats and dreary colors next time campus is hit with a storm! Distract yourself from the dreary weather by wearing bright fun clothes and forget it isn’t sunny outside.
