WHAT TO WEAR: Spring Break

What to Wear

It’s a fact of life: It’s hard to dress to the nines when the temperature is hovering around the same number. So I’ll pardon all of those who give up temporarily during these slushy months, because I have found myself to be one of them. While spring break is assumed to be a time to let loose and go wild, it can also serve as a week to get your head back into the fashion game. Let me go ahead and state that the fashion game does not include anything worn on the six seasons of Jersey Shore. Whether you’re spending your week on the couch or on the beach, here’s some outfit must-haves for those of you avoiding any scenario that includes a vacation braid clad James Franco uttering “Spring break.”

A maxi dress is a staple every Fashionista should depend on, especially during spring break season. While every other girl is taking this week as an excuse to wear minimal clothing, a maxi dress in itself will be a statement. Versatile and comfortable, maxi dresses can be dressed up or simply act as a cover-up. What could be better than wearing something that is every bit comfortable as it is fashionable? This Fashionista wears a gray Forever 21 staple.

When it comes to maxi dresses, the length gives you a little more freedom when it comes to accessorizing. A denim vest is a simple way to incorporate layering into an outfit while still surviving the heat. This Madewell vest is a great way to add a personal touch to a basic dress of any kind. Temperature permitting, a scarf is another way to accessorize a spring break look. Picking a light scarf, like this one from Nordstrom, is key when throwing one on in the heat

If you’re the type to buy a weeks worth of new outfits over rhinestoning a water bottle, be sure to not underestimate the maxi, or forget about layering. Here’s to the week that reminds us all that dressing well is not only effortless, but also fun when the temperature is a more forgiving number.

One Simple Change: Maxi dresses are the perfect item to throw in a suitcase because of their comfortable versatility! Loosing the layers and adding statement jewelry could be a simple switch from day to night. It would dress up this staple come time for dinner or a night out on the town.
