With the weather warming up after a long and tortuous winter, the first thing that comes to my mind is adding color back into my recently dreary and drab wardrobe. We’ve all been there- the frumpy sweaters, wearing the same boots every day, living in leggings because they’re warm and require minimum effort…but then BAM! Spring is finally here and we’re ready for color! We’re ready for warmth! We’re ready for anything that doesn’t involve tucking our heads down in our scarves to avoid the wrath of winter!
Now if it isn’t necessarily warm where you’re living, color is a great way to incorporate your excitement for the season into your wardrobe. Whether you’re going to class, getting ready for a night out, or even going to work- color is an easy way to look put together even on the days when you might not have it all together. Choosing something other than a neutral and rocking it creates the illusion that you tried really hard to look as good as you do.
Take this neon teal vest for example. Why do I love it? Firstly, it’s an easy piece to throw on over anything you already own. Jeans and a neutral top? Done. Basic maxi dress? Instantly adds some character. Also, this vest is a great way to add a little extra warmth that is sometimes needed during the spring.
Who doesn’t love a flowy top? It covers what needs to be covered and still looks great! Bright coral is always on trend for the warmer months, and this top incorporates a little bit of the military trend that’s big for this season. Either over leggings or tucked into a skirt, this shirt is sure to cover all of your fashion needs.
But what if you’re not in the market for any more clothes? If your closet in your Residence Hall is bursting at the seams and your roommate is sick of it, try some statement jewelry! I found this neon necklace on GROUPON of all places, and it screams glamour and fun all it one piece! This can look great with a chambray shirt you probably already have in that extra full closet, or dressed up with your staple LBD (little black dress).
