With the presence of spring comes the loss of heavy layers and breaking out your favorite dresses – sans tights. I was so excited to see this Fashionista sporting one of my favorite looks, the utilitarian trend. Her black shirt dress accompanied by the army green jacket made for a perfect spring ensemble.
Name: Amanda Masek
CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?
Amanda Masek: My style is pretty casual, at least to class. At night I tend to dress up my style and incorporate that latest trend that I want to follow.
CF: What is one item you must purchase for the spring season?
AM: I really need some new belts, and I like wearing them with dresses. I think they automatically flatter you and give you shape.
CF: Which celebrity's style do you like to model after?
AM: Kate Hudson, I love her rocker, bohemian, casual look.
How To: A key piece to the military trend is a great military green jacket. This style from Shopbop is lightweight and can be worn with a maxi dress, or ripped up jean shorts. The military jacket has transformed from a war uniform to a versatile piece shown by many designers on the runway. Style.com describes the trend seen on the runways as less uniform and more of a dressed up look. For this spring season opt for a military jacket just as this week’s Fashionista did.
