STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Spring Awakening

Spring is finally here, Fashionistas and Fashionistos! While many of us dig around in our closets tempted to wear the first pastel, floral dress we can find, this Fashionista gives a new spirit to your favorite spring dress go-to look.

Although floral print and spring weather go together like peanut butter and jelly, this week’s Fashionista breaks tradition. She chooses a light and fun spring-appropriate dress with a fresh twist—a quirky and unique elephant print. This print reflects her personality and offers an unexpected answer to the popular floral dress spring trend. Shop more dresses with unique patterns here!

This Fashionista adds dimension and versatility to her look by adding a vintage-inspired camel leather jacket. The three-quarter length sleeves are perfect for sometimes chilly spring days, while the details add a fun, retro vibe. She chooses chic accessories that add taste, without detracting from the fun elephant print. She keeps it simple, adding a long beaded necklace and a silver watch.

The finishing touch on this unique spring look is the Fashionista’s shoes. She selects casual canvas sneakers. The neutral color is perfect for any look, while the shoes are comfortable enough to trek across campus in style. Interestingly enough, the laces match the jacket, which really helps to tie the whole look together. The end result is a look that is casual, comfortable and chic—perfect for any spring occasion.
