STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Lighten Up Your Outerwear

As spring gradually brings warmer temperatures, students at BU are starting to trade in their heavy winter coats for lighter spring jackets. Since we are stuck in that awkward time when temperatures are too warm for a bulky coat, but still too cool to go sans coat, a trendy spring jacket is a necessity.

This Fashionista is a great example with her green military-inspired jacket. Not only is her jacket of choice super trendy but it also shows that it is time to once again pull out those military-inspired pieces that were so popular in the fall. She also styles her jacket with a geometric tank, chambray button-up and boat shoes to give her outfit an eclectic mix. The layering under her jacket also provides additional awkward weather options that can be adjusted according to the current temperature.

To follow our Fashionista’s footsteps, trade out your heavy coat for a trendy lighter jacket. A similar military-inspired one will add style to any look. You can also try Spiewak's Sumac jacket. The color, clean lines and ruched collar are on-point for spring. An edgy denim jacket is also a chic choice to throw on over any outfit. Or, for a funkier look, throw on a patterned jacket to add instant personality to any ensemble. You can also get creative and wear a blazer instead of a jacket. Try a pale tan one or a vivid pink blazer to make use of two of springs hottest trends. I can’t wait to see how BU Fashionistas get creative and begin to mix-and-match their outfits with lighter spring jackets.
