STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Pixie Cuts and Plaid

Style Advice of the Week

Finally, spring is here and the sun is shining! Soon I can put my black winter coat to rest for the season and break out my favorite little green canvas jacket. Spring is a magical time for nature, romance and fashion! The change of weather always makes me feel re-inspired to clean out my closet a bit and rediscover some of those hidden gems that have been hiding all winter. Here in Philly it’s still a bit chilly, but this Fashionista shows you her genius way of transitioning her wintery pieces into wearable spring looks.

Looking like a little ray of sunshine herself, this Fashionista rocks an edgy but versatile daytime look that could work for running errands, heading to a concert, going to class, shopping in the city and any other imaginable day-to-day event. Certainly her look isn’t one of the boldest I’ve seen on campus, but it definitely stands out among the crowd. Her flawless blonde pixie cut is absolutely perfect for this warm weather and immediately caught my eye. Consider taking spring cleaning to the max by chopping your locks off for this fresh new do’ that is becoming one of the trendiest cuts around!

The second part of her ensemble that caught my eye was her worn-in flannel shirt. (Fun fact: it’s her dad’s!) Don’t send your flannels to the attic just yet, my fellow Fashionistas/os. An oversized bright flannel shirt is the absolute perfect transitioning piece for those sunny, but still slightly chilly days when Mother Nature seems to be confused. She paired this flannel with a basic pair of black high-waisted jeans, a colorful pair of TOMS, a vintage-esque rocker tee and an assortment of accessories including a watch, bracelets, a small pendant necklace and a thin black belt. This Fashionista successfully meshes winter hues with springtime cheer to make a look that is all her own.

Gearing up for springtime has me feeling a little livelier on my walk to class, and I hope that by transitioning some of your favorite winter pieces you can feel the same! Soon enough our flip flops and gladiator sandals will be calling, but that, my dears, is for another post.
