With the weather here in D.C. getting progressively warmer, people have been showcasing the colors they love for spring more. In this case those colors are lady-friendly pinks and blues. I spotted this colorful Fashionista coming off the metro going to school. She was the brightest in dress and in spirit, I knew she would be this week’s subject. She has incorporated two spring trends that work in this look — color and florals.
She’s sporting a sheer pink blouse paired with a blue/purple colored denim, floral flats and a beaded statement necklace. This look is perfect for a long day of class and it's easy and cool for spring. What this CollegeFashionista did best in this look is edit. She realized that with using these punches of color, it's best to use a more simple silhouette.
The great thing about this look is that it can work for so many people and in so many different settings. If the bold colors are a little much for your style, try this same look in pastels like mint green. You can also try a blouse with an embellished collar for something a bit more unique. Try tucking your top in and pairing it with one of spring’s top trends — floral pants.
Winter in D.C. makes it easy to get comfortable with sticking to your business shades like black, blue and gray, but be sure to use this nice weather as a chance to go against the grain. Show your true colors for spring with color blocking, neon, ladylike pastels and floral prints.
P.S. Elevate this look with another layer: try a cool printed crew neck over that colored blouse and don’t forget to let that collar show!
