STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Springtime Stylin'

March 23rd, 2015 at 2:00am

The season we have been waiting for is finally here: spring. Because it’s still March and the weather is forever unpredictable, people on campus are having a hard time trying to find a balance between which winter and spring clothes to wear. What I find appealing about this Fashionista’s outfit is that she is still dressing super appropriately for the chillier temperatures in the morning but also catering her look to fit the springtime styles, as well.

A great way that this Fashionista dresses for the chillier morning is with her army green jacket. This military-inspired piece is light-weight yet still warm, and it works perfectly for the walk to and from class. Pairing her jacket with a black T-shirt and dark jeans makes her look seem mostly monochromatic, which is popular in the winter season.

A way that she was able to transition her outfit from winter to spring is the use of accessories. Everyone knows that a sign of spring is when Fashionistas bring out floral prints. This Fashionista chooses to wear a fringed, floral print scarf, which was a cute way to add a pop of color to her outfit. Not only is the scarf cute, but it is lightweight, too. Lightweight scarves are a perfect way to stay chic in the spring. Her red Michael Kors ballet flats add to the pops of color in her outfit. This Fashionista’s choice of accessories helps her to move from a more casual look to a feminine look.

Since it is springtime now, remember to dress appropriately for the weather like this Fashionista does. The snow will soon be gone, and the rain will arrive shortly. Put away your The North Face jackets, and put on your lightweight jackets. Also, if you don’t want to ruin your cute ballet flats in the rain, make sure to invest in a good pair of rain boots.
