With spring weather progressively unraveling, it appears that students on campus are letting their fashion potentials be known. Spring weather allows for the unveiling of playful, airy clothing that has been suppressed by long winter months of wearing layers upon layers. With this Fashionista’s outfit, it is clear that spring has officially sprung. Shannon brings a fresh face to this season’s attire. She combines elements of casual with formal wear to create an effortlessly sophisticated look. For the perfect spring compilation, Shannon pairs a light shift dress with an all-American, classic, Levi jean jacket. Her dress evokes feelings of spring with its neutral creamy color beneath a young floral pattern. With the bottom half of her ensemble, Shannon could have gone with a nude leg and a simplistic sandal, but by incorporating a tight and chic flat she brings formality to the look. The best accessory to her look is by far her charming smile which evokes a charismatically warm feel about her. I find fashion to be at its finest when personality seamlessly shines through which Shannon does with ease.

How To: To create a look like Shannon’s perusing through vintage shops and or flea markets is a must. Find a fun floral dress that is basic in its shape. Pair it with a timeless Levi jean jacket in a lighter wash that creates a more classic feel. To finish off the look find tights and flats in a rich maple color.
