ALL IN THE DETAILS: Springtime Sparkle

April 7th, 2015 at 2:00am

As winter finally comes to a close, I can’t help but notice how bright colors, fun patterns and lighter fabrics are slowly starting to fill the hallways again. We’ve had our fill of winter boots and sweatshirts. If you seem to have forgotten how to dress cheerfully, look no further!

This Fashionista caught my eye with her sweet, spunky look. She is certainly over the drab grays and navy blues of winter and is wasting no time creating colorful, everyday looks to wear around campus for the remainder of the semester. Her clothes are cute and casual, but it’s her accessories that bring this outfit to the next level. Her floral statement necklace is a preview of the flowers that will soon be blooming all around campus. The necklace’s sparkle and the chambray shirt with jeweled shoulders add a fun, feminine touch. Her stacked bracelets and Michael Kors watch are just the right amount of arm candy without overwhelming the rest of the outfit. Her color scheme consists of soft blue, purple, white and silver evoking the refreshing and calming warm weather spring has to offer. Her outfit isn’t all glitz and glam, though. She adds balance to her look with dark-wash jeans and classic, black Converse sneakers. Her overall look is very well put together and is a fun mix of femininity and edge—classic with a twist!

How To: Don’t be afraid to accessorize and mix patterns! Accessories are a great way to play up an outfit and to give it some personality. Wearing a statement necklace or earrings adds color and dimension to your outfit. If jewelry isn’t your thing, light scarves are a great alternative especially as we enter into the spring season.
