STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Sophisticated Pastels

It’s spring on Colorado State’s campus and the trends are blooming. From the likings of Rebecca Minkoff, Louis Vuitton and J.Crew’s spring 2012 presentations, pastels are a trend that are here to stay. Engaging in the beautiful March weather, this Fashionista paired an earthy green corduroy skirt with a floral tank, pink blazer and Mary Jane heels.

Dressing up is a luxury females partake in weekly. Whether a date, business meeting, or simply to feel more confident and beautiful, it’s about each girls’ personal style. The pink spin on this classic blazer sets the mood for spring. Paired with a skirt or blue jeans, a blazer is a great addition to any ensemble.

Macro florals are also another must-have trend from the runways. A great print that blends harmoniously with the color-blocking of pastels, this soft look is a change from the neon and bolds we have been seeing this spring. Sophisticatedly casual, this Fashionista remains fashion-forward and stylistically unique.

Originating in the 1920s, Mary Jane’s instantly became a classic shoe for girls and women, and has continued to be traditional while evolving over the decades. This Fashionista’s maroon Mary Jane’s are suede with a bit of a heel, which are perfect for campus walking and casual or dress-up occasions. Many Mary Jane’s today are platforms, pumps and colored or embellished; another definitive piece that speaks to an individual’s flair.

A final accessory this Fashionista chose was a pair of hoop earrings, an affordable accessory that adds a little “umph” to any ensemble. With pastels, florals and a new look on classic pieces, spring is coming and it’s fresh as a daisy.
