Spring is an in-between season, so dressing for the weather in Montana can be a little complicated. Layers are a given during this time of year, but what do we do about shoes? It’s all about balance when it comes to being comfortable. As this week’s Fashionista proves, a light jacket and a pair of jeans are great for keeping the goosebumps away, but a pair of leather sandals can make any layered look perfect for spring.
This Fashionista wears a pair of cuffed dark-washed skinny jeans with an adorable magenta tank top. She layers an olive green utility jacket over the top to add some warmth and accessorizes with simple silver rings. The pop of color in the top brightens up the look, making it great for spring. However, it’s her leather thong sandals that really transform this look, making it lighter, more balanced and perfect for the season.
When putting together a spring outfit, keep the idea of balance in mind. As weird as it is to talk about feet on CollegeFashionista, a lot of our body heat is kept there. In order to be comfortable during this in-between season, play around with what shoes you wear. Sandals are a great option because they take the heaviness out of a layered look and make it more weather appropriate. Plus, sandals keep you from overheating as it warms up throughout the day. If layering isn’t your thing, try pairing your sundress with some booties! That way, at least your feet won’t get cold when it’s 25 degrees and your dashing to class at 8:00 a.m.
How To: Sandals are an easy accessory to work with. Whether you pair them with layers to balance out your body temperature or just throw them on with a sundress, it’s really hard to go wrong with a simple pair of leather sandals.
