WHAT TO WEAR: Spring Break

What to Wear

When did your spring break countdown begin? Did it start last week, last month or have you been eagerly awaiting this sacred week since the start of the semester? Either way, spring break is one of the most exciting times of the year for college students everywhere!  It’s the time where you can finally unwind and, for many students, it’s the time to hit the beach! The only question is, “What to wear?”

This Fashionista has just the thing. Judging from her casual laid back outfit, she certainly seems ready to trade her book bag for a beach bag. Her stylish patterned shorts give a nod to the tribal trend. They are on the shorter side, but this is balanced by their loose fit.  Since they are slightly high-waisted, they pair perfectly with her black crop top and slouchy sweater from Nordstrom. It’s always wise to pack a couple of sweaters like this for spring break, since you never know what the weather will be like. This cardigan could be just what you need when the wind picks up on the beach during a late night bonfire. It’s always good to be prepared.

Speaking of being prepared, this Fashionista is sure to have everything she needs for the day in her adorable oversized gold bag. This would be great on spring break for holding beach towels, sunscreen and some fashion magazines for beach-time reading. Doubling this purse as a beach bag would also be a great space saver in your suitcase, especially if you’re notorious for overpacking. One thing that makes it easier to pack for a beach trip, however, is you only really need one pair of shoes: sandals! This Fashionista’s black leather sandals with gold accents are perfect for slipping off in the sand or on to make a snack run to the room.

This Fashionista’s entire outfit screams spring break—but with a twist. When most people think of springtime outfits they picture bright and vibrant colors. I love how this Fashionista has defied this stereotype and shown us that you can rock a spring outfit while sticking with neutrals. Her outfit showcases the spring trends of tribal patterns, high-waisted shorts and crop tops even without the neon. This chic ensemble is great for spring break, whether you wear it over a bathing suit, out to lunch or simply while you lounge around your room. With style like this, you’re sure to make a big splash on your spring break trip.

One Simple Change: To make this outfit more comfortable for traveling, simply swap the crop top for a loose-fitting T-shirt, and keep the cardigan close by. It can easily double as a blanket for catnaps on those long car rides. Don’t forget to add a pair of stylish shades as well to shield the sun and add a fashionable finishing touch to the look.
