Transitioning into spring can be awkward. When days start off cool and brisk only to turn warm and sunny later on, it is important for a Fashionista to layer when headed out for a full day of classes on campus.
While winter sweaters are “so last season” come mid-May, light, loose-knit sweaters are perfect for the ever-changing temperatures of spring. This Fashionista’s outfit was perfect for the day I spotted her. That morning had been sunny but had turned to cloudy and breezy just before lunchtime, proving that this Fashionista’s decision to grab her jacket before heading out the door a smart one.
Her light-weight knit sweater allows her to stay cool when the sun comes out and her maxi skirt keeps things free and breezy as she walks from class to class. She accessorized with a long vintage-inspired necklace and saddle shoes to make the look her own. While the weather was still undecided, the floral print of her maxi skirt was undeniably spring in its own monochromatic way.
While this Fashionista chose a sweater in a neutral color, Gap and Old Navy have similar spring knits in the season’s hottest neon and pastel colors. Try pairing your spring knit with a pair of cropped, colored denim for a preppy look, or a maxi skirt in a spring pattern for a more feminine feel.
Since layers are key when transitioning from one season to another, remember to grab an extra layer before you head out the door. While this Fashionista chose a military-inspired jacket, jean jackets or a long cotton cardigan are also great choices and the perfect way to add detail to your ensemble.
