Warmer weather is officially encroaching upon us. Although the occasional chilly temperatures are not allowing us to flaunt our favorite sundress or pair of shorts just yet, that does not mean our wardrobes can’t represent this transitional time. There are many ways to mix and match classic pieces in order to accomplish this mission. One of my personal favorite ways to add some spring to my style is by complementing a casual, laid-back look with a vibrant clothing item. Whether it is through color, pattern or texture, this is a great way to add some life to any outfit.

This Fashionista was seen wearing a preppy look around campus. She adds a pop of color to her outfit by way of her patterned pink tank top. The rich color brings liveliness to her wardrobe option. She pieces together this look with her favorite pair of skinny jeans. The contrast between the bright pink and dark wash denim is incredibly eye-catching. She bundles up to resist those springtime winds with a fashionable quilted jacket. Finally, she pulls together her look with some adorable booties. Her simple, yet chic accessories accentuate her outfit.
