There is something about bold colors that enhances your mood. Pairing vibrant patterns with vibrant color will surely put you in a fabulous mindset to cheers to being a year older in college and being finished with those dreaded exams, while also looking spring ready.

This Fashionista enhances her attire using a patterned tank and vibrant green wedges. If you notice, though, she downplayed her denim, which when pairing a lot of color and patterns together is ideal to keep the eye focused on one or two pieces of the ensemble. It is also good to split the pattern and color up by a downplayed clothing item. For example, if you were wearing patterned pants you should wear a neutral blouse and shoe, but up play the accessories. This will give you a classic spring look, while not looking overdone.
