STYLE ADVICE: Sweaters and Shades

With winter drawing to a close and spring just around the corner, finding the right outfit to wear around campus can be a bit difficult. So, put away those big, bulky coats and set aside your hats and scarves because it’s time to break out the sweaters and sunglasses. 

Sporting a preppy look is a great way to transition to the spring season. This Fashionisto is dressed head to toe in a casual, preppy look that works great day and night. Wearing a crisp white sweater with few bold lines creates a tailored look that makes this outfit composed. Pairing your sweater with a button-down shirt can really dress up your outfit.  You can mix and match colors and patterns for a more fun and trendy ensemble. 

If the button-down underneath your sweater seems a bit dressy, you can make the appearance less formal by coupling your shirt and sweater with a pair of jeans. The combination of the tops and bottoms helps to create a look that’s easy and effortless, which is what all of us strive for. Depending on the color of your sweater you may want to wear it with either light or dark jeansThis Fashionisto is wearing a white sweater so pairing it with dark wash jeans creates a smart contrasting look. 

Don’t overlook the shoes and the accessories! When picking out shoes, you want to wear a pair that complements the style of the whole outfit. If you are pairing a more formal top with casual pants, wearing a pair of lace-up boots or loafers makes the perfect combination. With the warmer weather, sunglasses are a must. Wearing a pair of timeless sunglasses such as aviators, wayfarers, or club masters can make your look classic and complete.
