So, it’s officially spring, but even spring in the northeast is chilly. You’re stuck somewhere between the cool temperatures and admiring (but not really feeling) the bright sun for most of March. Gone are the big down jackets, earmuffs and bulky snowshoes and gloves, but it’s still cold enough to be seen outside sporting a warm coat. But how’s a girl supposed to find that balance that goes with the first sightings of spring?

This Fashionista sports the perfect casual look for class. She keeps it simple and uses her accessories and slight embellishments to help define her look. Without her jacket this is a typical warm spring day look, but her fleece lined jacket really adds that extra layer of warmth needed for a spring day early in the season. Her neutral color scheme is essential to the look as the eyes are drawn to her earth tone colored scarf. It’s pattern and color add for an older and more studious look while the leather patches on her jeans add for a young and playful vibe. Yes, you can be classy and trendy at the same time.

Her tan canvas over the shoulder messenger bag is a staple piece in any Fashionista’s closet. She keeps her jewelry to a a minimum and really focused to highlight the few accessories that she wears. She allows her watch to stand out as it is not cluttered by an array of bracelets and rings. Her black boots really bring the whole outfit to a point, from head to toe she looks fierce and ready to take on the day.

Follow in the footsteps of this Fashionista and you will definitely achieve a look that is polished, studious and trendy.

One Simple Change: Trying to get this same stylish look for a weekend outing? Ditch the large canvas school bag and replace it with a smaller over the shoulder purse.
