March 22nd, 2016 at 2:10am

While the seasons shift from winter to spring, it is hard to know what to wear in order to remain comfortable and warm, yet fashionable. One day it may be 75 degrees, the next day it may be 40 degrees. Not only does this take a toll on one’s health, it takes a toll on one’s ability to represent themselves through fashion.

This Fashionista has figured it exactly how to correct this problem by wearing fashion items from both seasons including a striped dress and accessorizing with a simple white infinity scarf. The use of neutral colors such as black and white maintains the winter feel during those colder transition days, while the desire for spring color is brought out through this Fashionista’s bright red hair.

While this Fashionista’s pairing of the dress and scarf shows her ability to transition between seasons well, the most important aspect of her outfit is her platform converse. While platform shoes have been a trend in the past, they are being brought back to life in this modern form of everyone’s beloved sneaker: Converse. This Fashionista caught on to the trend early as well as celebrities such as Miley Cyrus and Troye Sivan.

The classic yet edgy nature of this shoe allows it to be paired with any style of outfit from casual jeans and a T-shirt to dresses such as the one this Fashionista rocks. The complement of the white over the ankle socks adds a vintage and indie feel, mixed with a little bit of Wednesday Addams. Being so unique, these shoes can help take a simple black and white outfit and completely transform it. By adding this single versatile element, one is able to represent their personal edgy and hipster style throughout the transition of the seasons.

How To: If you’re looking for a way to get a little extra height without sacrificing your ankles, platform shoes are the way to go. By ditching the heels and going for these platform sneakers you can remain casual, while also testing fashion boundaries. Add platform shoes to any casual outfit for a trendy boost.
