WHAT TO WEAR: Out With Friends

What to Wear

If you ask a Fashionista/o what season we’re in, chances are you’ll get an answer beyond simply ‘spring.’ Yes, of course it’s spring. But this also means it’s: flats season, boyfriend jeans season and put-away-your-parka season (my personal favorite). A new season opens up a whole world of wardrobe possibilities. What is more, milder temperatures allow for a host of new outdoor activities. After all, spring also marks the beginning of another important season—patio season!

Heading out with friends in warmer weather is often just more fun. Sunny skies mean you can wander through your college town, grab frozen yogurt or relax with some drinks on a patio. Dressing for these carefree days with friends should be just as fun. This Fashionista nails the look in her leopard print flats, jean jacket and spring-approved accessories.

Key to this Fashionista’s look is her leopard print smoking slipper. When it comes to choosing flats, there are so many great options. The smoking slipper is an ideal choice for an afternoon of strolling with friends. Her flats look both comfortable and chic. Then there’s the fabulous leopard print, perfect for a fun afternoon. I am certain that her friends will compliment the shoes. The print makes her whole outfit pop. Footwear is a fantastic way to easily inject color and pattern into your wardrobe. The flats look especially striking when paired with her simple black jeans.

She completes the look with another spring staple—the denim jacket. With its cuffed sleeves and light wash, this Fashionista’s jean jacket has a relaxed, effortless vibe. Denim is also super easy to style. It’s a great complement to her cozy knit sweater. Finally, an afternoon out with friends calls for some great accessories. This Fashionista’s oversized ring is a definite statement piece. I love how the turquoise color is set off by her crisp white nails. She keeps the rest of her jewelry simple, pairing the ring with a thin gold bangle.

For a spring afternoon out with friends, a casual look works best. Take a cue from this Fashionista and slip on your favorite shades. With some great shoes and a light jacket, you’re ready for any patio.

One Simple Change: With finals looming, many of us are booking appointments with professors. For office hour visits, swap out the black jeans for a colored skirt. The piece is perfect for meeting with a professor.
