What to Wear

Spring has finally decided to arrive in North Carolina, and it’s brought a few things with it including sundresses, sandals and every color of the rainbow. Spring is one of my favorite times of year, especially when it comes to the fashion it encompasses. Spring is the time when days are sunny without being too hot or too cold, a time when you can grab a fun dress or just a T-shirt and shorts and a time when sunglasses are the most popular accessory around.

Everyone takes on the warm weather of spring with his or her own unique touch. With the temperatures at High Point hitting the upper 70s and low 80s, many girls have brought out their sundresses from the back of their closets. Dresses are perfect for the warm weather as they are light and breezy, not to mention they decrease your getting ready time to a minimum. Each dress varies in its length, fit and color.

These three Fashionistas all put their own spin on the dress trend. The Fashionista on the left picked a fun flowery patterned dress with a racerback style top. This dress includes fall colors, but the print makes it the perfect spring look. The Fashionista in the middle supports another spring trend: high-waisted skirts. She began with a simple white tank top, and then she paired it with a printed skirt. Her black sandals complemented the background of her skirt.

The third Fashionista displays one of my favorite spring trends: bright colors. I love walking around campus on a sunny day and seeing all the reds, greens, blues and pinks. This Fashionista reached for a red sundress from American Eagle Outfitters with a unique flower pattern. I also love the neckline to this dress as it includes a ruffle detail. Her simple necklace adds a great touch to the neckline. She throws on a pair of gold flats with triangle cut out detailing from T.J.Maxx. I love the gold flats because it gives the Fashionista freedom to add any accessories that she desires, creating endless possibilities.

One Simple Change: Add a pair of fun heels, possibly a pair of gold strapped wedges and any of these looks would be perfect for a casual date night or a fun night out wit the girls.
