The semester is wrapping up with summer is in sight, which means campus style is heating up with the weather. This week's Fashionista incorporates colors into her outfit that show the summer mood has already arrived on campus. This Fashionista is wearing the ever-popular romper with a bold twist of color and print. She lets the romper's bright rainbow mix take center stage, opting to wear a simple pair of earrings and matching suede sandals. The sandals pick up the bright magenta in her romper, which is a perfect reflection of the heat outside. This Fashionista shows that the weather isn't the only thing hot about the month of May.

CF: How would you define the fashion style of UNC-Chapel Hill students?

How To: To get this Fashionista's look, just keep it simple by getting bold. Choose a main piece that is the focus of attention in your outfit, like a bold dress or a unique pair of shoes. A daring jumpsuit, another popular piece this year, can be found at ASOS.
