April 22nd, 2015 at 2:00am

Spring has sprung on college campuses all over the country, which means all of the trees and flowers are in full bloom. There is no reason why Fashionistas everywhere cannot embody the vibrant colors of spring’s flora and fauna in your own wardrobe for this spring season. Draw spring wardrobe inspiration from the beautiful plants you pass on your way to class. Embrace your environment. The key is using floral print sparingly, but in an impactful way. This week’s Fashionista demonstrates the surprising versatility of floral print with an outfit that is appropriate for a variety of occasions, from class to a night out.

This Fashionista lets her floral print shine by pairing a bright, multi-colored skirt with a more subdued top and sweater. The sweater highlights one color in the print, which lets the skirt stand out even more. With an always flattering A-line cut and banded waist, the skirt is a perfect combination of fun, flirty and comfortable.

The woven flats add a casual vibe to the polished look.  They also allow for comfort when walking around campus or running errands.

How To: To recreate this Fashionista’s fresh and fun spring look, Fashionistas should simply follow a few easy steps. Start with one eye-catching floral piece, whether it be a dress, skirt or pants and build an outfit around the print. Choose a simple top that highlights one color in the print and emphasizes the floral pattern. Finally, select a comfortable neutral shoe to polish off the fresh spring vibe of your look.
