It is crazy how the school year is flying by: midterms are in a couple of weeks, spring break is approaching and soon enough people will be walking around in shorts. The light of the sun has finally peaked through the gray, dreary clouds, but though this knowledge inspires hope, it is still a little nippy and the downside is that it can be a bit tricky to dress for the transitioning weather. I find myself either dressing too much or dressing too little, so I am in this constant battle of being sweaty or shivery. However, no worries! I have found the solution and it is sue-weet! Get it? I tried to combine suede with sweet. Nevermind, let’s just get to the outfit.

My solution to this changing weather is a suede vest. It is a simple, easy and a super-chic piece that everyone should have in their closet. It will keep you warm without overheating you. What I most love about this vest is that it can be paired with anything. You can wear a skirt, a dress, jeans and even bright red pants! Whatever your style, a suede vest is the perfect match. However, my favorite look is letting the vest be that pop of color. This Fashionista does it perfectly with an all-black ensemble.

If you want an easy outfit to put together, wearing all-black is the way to go. I love how this Fashionista grabbed her favorite black T-shirt to contrast the vest. Depending on where you live, you can wear a long sleeve or short sleeve T-shirt. For the bottoms just grab some black pants. To add a little edge, go with a zipper detailing. Now for the shoes, black booties are perfect or you can wear knee-high boots. Of course, you cannot forget accessories! This Fashionista kept it simple with a few gold rings, a black watch and dangling leopard earrings. But since it still gets a little cold later in the day, a light, plush jacket will keep you warm, but looking fashionable. Now you have a perfect outfit to rock for this weather.

Since spring is fast-approaching, have fun with your style and experiment. Make a statement with that suede vest because it is a time to try new things, grow and learn. No matter your circumstances, always look your best.
