WHAT TO WEAR: Darty Season

Whether it’s climate change or Punxsutawney Phil’s lack of prediction skills to blame, the weather is slowly getting warmer in college towns around the country. For most college students, this means it’s quickly approaching darty season. To make up for the lack of football tailgates spring is full of outdoor daytime parties (otherwise known as darties).

This Fashionista opted for the classic choice when the weather is at an in-between stage—long sleeves and a skirt. She dressed up what’s actually an off-the-shoulder floral romper by layering it with a versatile light wash button-down jean skirt. This romper trick is the perfect outfit-hack for keeping your shirt tucked away when layering with a skirt or even high-waisted pants!

Floral prints have been seen all over the runways for spring/summer 2017 with vibrant flowers dotting and decorating the collections of Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, and Chloe, making this romper a stylish pick for the upcoming spring season. The subtle red floral pattern on this Fashionista’s romper brings just the right pop of color to an otherwise darker and neutral outfit.

Our Fashionista polished off the details of her spring party outfit with a simple, lightly embellished black choker and a fringe purse for keeping her phone and sunglasses with her as she takes on a spring darty. She can wear this comfortable and stylish outfit for more than just a party—her ensemble can take her from brunch to dinner and is versatile for anything she has planned for the day.

So, when dressing for the unpredictable weather of darty season, remember to keep in mind comfort, versatility, and of course, fashion!
