We can finally feel the warmth of spring reaching out to us here at the University of Rhode Island. On my way to morning classes I usually see tired faces and outfits picked for their comfort above all else. However, this particular morning I ran into a Fashionista that not only seemed to be awake, but just as stylishly dressed. Wearing a summer dress paired with Hunter rain boots and a denim jacket, she embraced the day with a fresh look.
With a forecast of possible rain and humid air, this student opted for a dress with a simple silhouette and floral print. This classic summer dress gives an effortless vibe and can be worn in so many ways. Today’s Fashionista opted to pair it with a brown leather belt. For a similar look, try an Urban Outfitters floral dress and a classic belt from Abercrombie & Fitch. The brown leather belt not only emphasizes the waist, but gives off an earthy vibe.
Denim jackets seem to be a popular option here on campus, with last week's Fashionista sporting one as well. Denim jackets have a great fit and structure, but unlike blazers, they have a relaxed tone. Perhaps, jean jackets may seem less intimidating. Try a denim jacket from Abercrombie & Fitch.
Rain boots are still a staple in most Fashionistas' closets, after all it’s still spring! This student wore rain boots that met mid-calf in navy blue. Hunter rain boots are such a classic option. They’re not only incredibly durable, but they look stylish too! Get the same Hunter rain boots for a great match with dresses.
Hint: Stack on tons of bracelets and leave braids in overnight to embrace a flower child vibe. Also, don’t be afraid to switch up the rain boots. Wear cowboy boots for a summer concert, or go barefoot on a summer day!
