As spring weather is among us, many eager Fashionistas on campus are ditching their parkas and snow boots for short sleeves and open-toed shoes. The transition from winter to spring is relatively tricky for most Fashionistas. Formal wear or business professional wear can be especially difficult to transition, because most formal attire tends to have a dark color palette, bulky and thick fabrics. Once spring approaches, a thick black blazer or dress pants is the last thing a Fashionista wants to wear for her spring meetings on campus.

This Fashionista sports the perfect formal wear transition pieces and color palettes. She has just enough pop of color with her somewhat sheer crop top for an easy transition into spring attire. This Fashionista rocks the perfect pair of high-waisted dress pants that capture shape, while still being comfortable to walk from meeting to meeting during a busy night on campus. The black dress pants are a great fabric to utilize throughout the spring and summer. They are a thin lightweight fabric that is great for the warmer days ahead.

This Fashionista tops off this look with simple, but statement accessories. When attending professional meetings on campus keep accessories to a minimum. They tend to be a distraction if you pile on too many. This Fashionista’s black booties are a great transition piece to utilize throughout spring, but opt for an open-toe later in the season to show off your perfect pedicure. Keep accessories clean and simple to help transition your formal wear from dull winter to radiant spring!

One Simple Change: Post-meeting you decide to go out with your girlfriends. This time of the year, it can get chilly in the evenings. Don’t forget a cardigan to throw over your crop top to keep warm while walking home in the colder weather.
