We’ve been lucky enough to get a sneak peak of the upcoming spring season this week in Corvallis! While it probably won’t be warm enough to rock shorts everyday, the appearance of the sun means we can finally lighten some of our layers. This week’s Fashionista did a perfect job of dressing for the temperamental weather and is a great inspiration for pulling together transitional uniform for the early spring.
This fashionable undergrad threw an over-dyed denim button-down on top of a simple navy tank and black skinny jeans. The outfit alone is perfect for those breezy, sunny days that mark the first signs of spring. While her outfit is understated, her accessories really were the star of the show. The infinity scarf around her neck not only broke up the otherwise dark palette but was the perfect lightweight material for early spring. Her awesome stud-adorned booties added a rocker edge to the look and made the entire ensemble more playful. For your own studded booties, try these from Urban Outfitters.
By far, my favorite accessory of hers was her wool brimmed hat. I love when anyone successfully works a structured hat, whether it be a fedora, pork pie or panama, into an outfit. They’re not only a fun and fresh way to rev up an outfit, they’re also great for a cool or rainy day. This Fashionista kept it local by wearing the Oregon brand Pendleton’s aptly named Indy Hat. Paired with the ultra saturated button-down and boots, the look was slightly western inspired without being costume-y. There are so many wool hats on the market, and I love this Topshop version as well as this one by Eugenia Kim.
Fashionistas, these sunny days lately may make us feel like warm weather is here, but we all know that the rainy season isn’t quite over yet. So when you’re struggling to find a balance between the cold and sunny temps, don’t go out and buy new clothes just yet. Take a page out of this Fashionista’s book and pair lightweight layers with warmer accessories. It’s not only the perfect way to gradually transition between winter and spring, but also another way you can extend the life of your wardrobe!
