Finding the perfect outfit for the first day of spring semester can be quite the challenge. So what’s a girl to do when you want to keep it fun and fresh? The answer boils down to simplicity. This Fashionista chose a camel colored dress and a pair of riding boots to spice up her look. With the use of a funky purse, she brought a playful side to her ensemble.

Riding boots are a great transition from winter to spring because they provide necessary warmth for those cooler days on campus. Riding boots also add a touch of class to any outfit because of their simplistic silhouette. The dress she is wearing is a minimal style with a beautiful shape that accentuates her natural features. Camel is an incredibly trendy color this season. It is a versatile color that goes with just about every color when paired correctly. Using her dress as the base of the look allows her to play with accessories. By accessorizing her outfit with white and black details it keeps her looking sharp.

With such a simple color palette, this Fashionista took her outfit to the next level by incorporating fun textures into the look. Her dress is a suede material that gives the look depth and a ’70s vibe. Her purse is a faux fur cross-body bag that is sure to turn heads while she struts across campus. With the addition of a charm bracelet her look comes full circle with the metal detail.

Next time you are in a bind with what to wear, remember to just have fun with the look. By using simplistic key pieces and having fun with accessorizing it is easy to create a cohesive look. Do not sweat the small stuff, but do not forget to incorporate it either. Accessorizing on your first day back on campus is a surefire way to start your semester and show your style off!

One Simple Change: Heading downtown for a girl’s night out? Swap out the riding boots for your favorite pair of heels and throw on a RAD statement necklace to really spice up this simple look.
