After weeks of intense classes and stressful exams, a relaxing vacation is much deserved. Often associated with wild beach parties, spring break occurs at the most opportune time in the semester. It allows students to forget their academic responsibilities and to cherish a week or two of temporary freedom. While copious amounts of fun in the sun is not on every student’s agenda, spending time enhancing personal style should be. Look to this week’s Fashionista for an idea of how to dress on a casual day during break.
This Fashionista looks effortlessly cool in her neutral ensemble, which offers a deviant take on spring colors. Instead of opting for the predictable pastels and floral prints, she wears an earthier palette. Her choices of colors and fabrics are rather refreshing and in tune with the transitioning weather. A pretty patterned skirt with a chiffon trim is the focal point of her outfit. She builds on it with a simple gray top and a chunky knit cardigan. Sticking to the classic accessories, this Fashionista sports black tights and flats, a long linked necklace and a muted red lip. She also wears a small, drawstring backpack to for holding her essentials.
This spring break, take a chance on style. Steer away from the expected trends and opt for a look that is more about comfort and practicality. Wear a basic top with a patterned skirt to keep things interesting. Don a long string of pearls or beads and swipe on a subtle lipstick for a chic pout. Pull out the cozy grandfather cardigan and throw it on top of everything. Slip into a pair of go-to flats, grab a tiny bag and head out for a calm springtime stroll.
One Simple Change: Swap the cardigan for a bright blazer when heading to an internship. The structure of the blazer will make the outfit professional and the color will add some whimsy.
