Spring is on it's way and so is spring fashion! Most of the students, including myself, have been having fun with mixing in some bright colors to complete our ensembles. With pastel colors like jade, violet and salmon readily around campus, certain Fashionistas and Fashionistos have been easily spotted. This Fashionista in particular, is definitely ready for the warm weather to come.
She caught my eye immediately when I saw her salmon blouse tucked into jean shorts, paired with sheer tights and socks. I have always been a fan of wearing shorts throughout the seasons, especially when they're paired with all kinds of colored tights, and of course with some sophisticated heels or flats. For being a first year design student at Columbia, I'd say she is ahead of the game!
