WHAT TO WEAR: Spring Break

April 21st, 2017 at 2:00am

Sun, sand, and style. These three components can make any occasion worthwhile, especially spring break: a quintessential time for college students to relax and have fun. Dressing your best and wearing what you love correlates with improving your mood. When you look good, you feel good, so use spring break to express your style!

Among the sea of people tanning and swimming in Miami’s clear turquoise waters, this Fashionisto’s spring break ensemble caught my eye. Style breeds in a city like Miami. As a place that makes trends and rarely follows them, fashion in Miami is beautifully unique. With Miami’s strong Cuban influence and vibrant colors, these factors contribute to everyone’s style.

This Fashionisto used Miami as his inspiration for this spring break ensemble. With temperatures regularly higher than the ’70s accompanied by a tropical breeze, a winter jacket is unheard of. This Fashionisto opted for a light blue linen collared button-down shirt, ideal for a day at the beach and even a night out. His monochrome button-down imitates Miami’s blue skies and is the perfect companion for his eclectic swim trunks. When in Miami, the beach is a priority. Swimwear is therefore embedded into one’s wardrobe as another way to express style. Mirroring the ’90s, this pattern on his Chubbies Swim Trunks is most likely found in various ensembles on the TV show Saved by the Bell, making this Fashionisto the modern day Zack Morris. The vibrant blue, green, pink, and orange that pop from these swim trunks are typical colors in exotic flowers and neon lights scattered throughout Miami.

With such beautiful weather there is no need to Uber, so these gray Polo Ralph Lauren Faxon Low lace up shoes are ideal for taking on adventures in Miami. The sun illuminates this city everyday, making these aviator sunglasses the perfect addition to this Fashionisto’s look. A watch may seem unnecessary to some, however, this Fashionisto’s black watch is an essential accessory. Not only does it keep him on track with the time, it adds a distinct feature to his spring break ensemble.

Whether it be Miami or Mexico, take advantage of spring break. Explore a new city and your style!
