Cheery pastels, vibrants brights and gleaming whites. These are only some of the colors that come to mind when thinking about spring. Although I would love to add a robin's egg blue trench coat to my closet, your spring wardrobe doesn't always have to be rainbows and butterflies. Wearing darker, more subdued colors in this fabulous weather will have you standing out from the crowd in a good way. This week's Fashionista did just that, and I was green with envy of her ensemble. She looked effortlessly chic in an intricate navy blue trench from ModCloth and black mary-jane flats. She paired the coat with a pair of sheer black tights that featured a runner in the back. My absolute favorite part of this look is the way the dotted design collected at both the bottom and cuffs of the coat.

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your everyday style?

Caroline Shaffer: I love vintage pieces.

CF: Tell me a little but more about your coat.

CS: I got it from Modcloth. It was surprisingly on sale so I was so excited to buy it!

How To: This Fashionista's coat was definitely a steal and I am extremely jealous I didn't find the deal myself!  I found a similar type of look with this "Against the Storm" coat on Modcloth. Urban Outfitters always has a great selection of tights, so try a pair like this sheer heart band tight or this side floral tight.
