ALL IN THE DETAILS: "Short" Notice

As the temperature rises this spring, so do our hemlines. It’s no doubt that shorts are a staple in every Fashionista’s closet for the spring. Nearly every designer this season sent collections down the ready-to-wear runway that included show-stopping shorts. When the sun is out, we’re eager to take advantage of the weather, but it is still not quite hot enough on the East Coast to wear shorts and tank tops every day.

This Fashionista shows us the perfect combination of spring shorts with a top that is still practical for when it’s chilly. She paired loose, lightweight shorts with a heavier cotton top and added a bold statement jewelry piece that tied in perfectly with the colors in the shorts. Taking advantage of the nice weather, she wore a neutral sandal. Her plain white T-shirt is an effortless way to keep her outfit from looking too over the top. Incorporating a striking statement necklace, her printed shorts and plain top immediately look dressy and chic. Her look is perfect to stand out in class while still remaining comfortable enough to sit in the library for hours to study for finals (or to sit on the campus green while trying to think of an excuse not to do homework). Try a high-waisted floral pair of shorts for a girly look or a pair with lace trim to add a feminine touch to your wardrobe.

How To: Can’t wait to put all of your pants away for the spring? Have no fear! Having several pairs of transitional shorts will solve all of your problems this spring. Pair your shorts with a long sleeve shirt and flats for class or a dressy top and heels for a night out!
