January 15th, 2015 at 2:00am

Spring semester is finally upon us and that means skirts, bright colors and floral prints, right? Well, that’s not exactly true here in central Illinois. Us at Illinois State University are so lucky to keep the frigid weather months and months into the semester. Well some Fashionista’s dread the cold, others embrace it and as hard as it may be to dress cute in the cold, your winter favorites can make a perfect transition into the spring.

This Fashionista is the perfect example of someone who does not let the cold overrule her style. Her neutral color pallet is the perfect transition into the spring weather and she keeps it simple with a pair of blue jeans, a taupe colored blouse and then dresses up the outfit with booties, a studded clutch and a faux fur vest.

When wearing a faux fur vest like this one, make it the statement of your outfit. By keeping the rest of your outfit simple, a vest can really stand out and keep your outfit on trend and unique. However, make sure that you get a vest is perfect for you. You don’t want the vest to be too overpowering and make you look like you’re playing dress up.

How To: Wanting to wear the hottest spring trends but it’s too cold to rock them? No worries! Grab your winter favorites like a vest or scarf and make it the statement of your outfit. Wear neutral colors and keep the rest of your outfit light and spring-like.
