Although flowers are blooming all over campus, the brisk air can have a definite impact on heaviness of clothing one chooses to wear. This Fashionista, spotted on her way to class, takes a simple plaid flannel and dresses it up with an edgy brown leather jacket by Vince. To tie in the blue and black hues of the flannel, Avery wears a thin, trendy infinity scarf. The scarf is light enough for a spring day and adds an additional pinch of style. She wears classic black leggings and slouchy, brown suede boots to make her outfit complete.
