Spring is finally here. No more puffy coats that reach our ankles or layers upon layers of shirts and sweaters. Instead, we get to show a little more skin and bask in the sun as campus finally warms up. This Fashionista takes the first actually warm day in Syracuse, New York by storm with this great outfit.

Her simple black tunic dress is a perfect basic. The cut is both casual and comfortable, and is perfect for layering necklaces. The Fashionista’s long gold lock and key necklace and simple silver short necklaces are a great way to amp up a piece that could be perceived as boring.

Although it is spring, it is still not tank top weather. This Fashionista compensates for the lack of warmth with this adorable cargo jacket with gold studded detailing. The jacket is just light enough to be worn during springtime while still keeping you warm and just a little bit more covered. The gold studs complement the Fashionista’s gold jewelry and her tan gladiators, which are also complete with gold detailing.

The Fashionista doesn’t just stop at necklaces. Her gold hoop earrings look great with the rest of her gold jewelry, and match her dark brown hair perfectly. She wears multiple rings and even a toe ring, making her ensemble even more interesting. Mixed metal bracelets complete this look, and are the perfect addition.

One Simple Change: Ready for festival weather? Leave the jacket at home and pair the black dress with knee-high gladiator sandals for a free spirit look.
