STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Pretty In Pastels

Style Advice of the Week

When I first saw this Fashionista I couldn't help but to wonder what she was listening to in her big white headphones. I also couldn't help but to think of how cool of an accessory a unique pair of headphones are. They look totally cool either on your head, or around your purse (which is where she put them when I took her photo). The color palette of her outfit is also so pretty and girly, which is a look that I think only certain people can really pull off. The softness of her maxi skirt and her undone floral overshirt are beautiful and breezy and perfect for summer.  

Sticking with soft pastel and nude colors is such a simple way to let other aspects of your outfit do the talking. While I'm a huge fan of bold colors, I think that when you stick to nude and soft colors, you can let patterns, silhouettes and accessories really make the outfit. As you can see, mixing this nude pink with a rich saddle brown leather looks gorgeous.

Everyone loves music, and since headphones can actually boost the look of an outfit, why not get a fashionable pair? Also, a loose shirt is an insanely easy piece to throw over a basic camisole to amp up an outfit with color or pattern. Check out something from the boys department that brings in a soft, vintage feel to your look. Finally, a high quality thick leather belt in a rich leather finish is going to be extremely versatile and a crucial piece in your closet. While unique belts can make a huge statement, you definitely won't regret having something simple.

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Pretty in Pastels

Style Advice of the Week

It is official: spring has finally sprung! Once the weather hit above 65 degrees this week in Hamilton, the campus became crawling in coeds sporting in their beloved seersucker, aviators and flip-flops that have been wasting away in the back of closets for the past few wintry months. The hottest spring trends seen at New York Fashion Week such as pleats, pencil skirts and (of course) pastels are in full force here at Colgate.

Just like Easter egg hunts, daffodils and sun showers, incorporating pastel shades into your wardrobe is a rite of spring. If loud, “look-at-me” colors aren’t your style, then this season’s pale lavenders, icy blues, blush pinks and light yellows are calling your name. This darling Fashionista shows how to mix and match sherbet hues for a casual and cute look for class, a girl’s day out or just enjoying the warm weather on an afternoon stroll. The combination of the striped sailor tee, teal chino shorts and beige flats give off a ladylike yet playful vibe. To imitate her look for when the sun goes down, swap out the shorts for a pair of skinnies in a sweet sorbet shade. For a fancier event, classic prepster retailers like Vineyard Vines and Lilly Pulitzer have countless items from dresses to tote bags to bathing suits in these angelic shades to ease into the spring to summer transition. So, embrace these charming pastels to represent one of the most adored and timeless spring fashion trends!
