Spring is a season of transitions: barren trees start to bud with flowers, fresh green grass emerges from what was once a layer of snow, you start ordering your daily latte iced and Fashionistas start to slowly work warm-weather pieces into their #OOTDs. If you go to college in a seasonal climate, spring can be a very unpredictable time to dress for class. It might be 55 degrees when you’re headed to your 8:00 a.m. class, but 70 degrees by lunchtime. If you’re anything like me, you are probably itching to break out your dresses after a long winter and maybe show off what’s left of your spring break tan.

This Fashionista shows us how you can dress for chilly mornings and warm afternoons by incorporating a statement winter jacket with a spring dress. Her white sherpa jacket makes for a cozy layer that can easily be removed later in the day. This Fashionista paired her jacket with a basic black T-shirt dress and a pair of adidas Superstar trainers that kept the look perfectly casual for class. She accessorized her outfit with a black beaded choker necklace and a pair of chic clear-framed reflective Quay sunnies.

This outfit is the perfect balance between comfort and style for class. A T-shirt dress makes it look like you put effort into your outfit but gives you comfort necessary for a full day of class and activities! Throw on a trendy pair of trainers that double as a sensible walking shoe for running around campus and you have the perfect not-trying-too-hard for class look. Is there anything else a girl can really ask for in an outfit for class?

One Simple Change: Take this casual look like this from day to night by swapping out your sneaks for a more dressed up feel. Headed to dinner with friends? Try a pair of trendy pointed-toe lace up flats! Going out tonight? Go for a pair of black Chelsea booties.
