STYLE ADVICE: Sweetly Springtime

It’s April, and spring has finally sprung. At long last, all the heavy layers and muted winter shades can be retired to the back of your closet. Personally, rearranging my closet each season allows me to take inventory of my collection. In the spirit of spring cleaning, now is the time to really assess your pieces and how your tastes have changed. Is your wardrobe cohesive? What are your #stylegoals? Do these items bring you joy?

These simple questions can help you create a more curated and put together style. And as an added bonus, getting ready will be a breeze. Even a little bit of downsizing allows you to more clearly see your pieces and color palettes. As seen here, this Fashionista kept it clean and simple with a neutral color scheme. Her beige cardigan and cream knitted tank are soft layers that are perfect for a spring day. The lace detailing at the hem of her top adds some more visual interest. Pairing these easy pieces with medium wash, gently distressed denim keeps the look effortless and breezy.

Comfortable and sweet, this outfit is a definite go-to on campus. With the hustle and bustle of exams approaching, it is critical to have flattering and fast outfits on hand so you can stay looking cool and collected through the stress. A pop of color on her bright yellow sandals adds a hint of sunshine and cheer to her look. Hints of sparkle from her gold-flecked cardigan tie in with her delicate jewelry. Gold tones are carried over into the frames of her circle shades, giving the look a more boho vibe. Dainty jewelry has remained in style for good reason.

These tiny additions add elements of sheen without overwhelming focal pieces. My collective advice for this spring is to take inspiration from this Fashionista and keep your looks light and visually interesting with subtle details like lace and small, fun accessories.
