All right ladies, lets spring it in. The transition from fall to spring on a college campus is never easy. It begins with figuring out the right outfit to wear. It’s hard to dress for the weather when it is hot outside, yet the campus thought it was a good idea to start blasting the air conditioner again. The best way to make this change a good one is to always cover at least one part of the body, whether that is by wearing pants instead of shorts or a top with a light jacket. Spring is weird, no doubt. Especially if you go to a school like CU Boulder, where the temperature goes from 30 degrees to 80 degrees within a 50 minute class period.
This Fashionista, however, was able to still look fierce in these awkward temps. Now, some of you may be a spring kind of person, but for those of you who are like me, you might not always feel so good about the in between. So, finding your base and showing your true colors is key. What this Fashionista is wearing is a great example of a way to do so.
The first step is to always stay true to your style. Second, you can never own too many pairs of flared jeans. I know this was a phase in the ’70s and ’80s, but the truth is that they should never go out of style. They are the most flattering pairs of jeans I own, and this Fashionista is rocking a washed pair from Free People. Flared jeans are also the best for those 60 to 70 degree temperatures because they aren’t as restricting as most skinny jeans are. This is her base piece for the outfit. The pattern on her off-the-shoulder top is what allows her outfit to show off some style. Now that she has her cozy and temperature perfect outfit on, it’s time to add the details.
Her gold layered necklace goes with absolutely any outfit. It is perfect for allowing the fun aspects of spring wardrobes to be brought out! With a lot of details in one outfit, it is nice if most of them have a simple vibe. That brings me to her purple reflectors. I love any kind of reflecting sunglasses. However, purple seems to be making its way to this years spring colors. Her sunglasses allow the outfit to make a full statement of springtime. Her last accessory is one of my favorites, the headscarf. In Boulder the wind seems to pick up in the spring, her headscarf keeps her warm and the off-the-shoulder top balances it out to keep her cool. Lastly, throw on a fun shoe, like her fringe slip-on, and you are good to go!
So, spring it in ladies! Don’t allow the frightening, complicated weather get the best of you. This is the time to play with color, texture, and add any fun details to brighten up the day even more!
