Spring Street Style: Paris Casual Chic

This look is the ideal casual chic look as it ties in bright spring colors with monotone denim for classical harmony while the leather clutch and ankle boots add a touch of edginess. Emulate this look for a relaxing Sunday stroll through the park or brunch with friends.

OOTD: Bright & Bold

Spring trends come and go, but one that is sure to stay is bright, 'look-at-me-now' colors. 

I was inspired by a cross of geometric cuts and complementary colors such as blue and burnt orange for a perfectly balanced Spring look. Exemplify this care-free, bubbly style with a fleece top and form-fitting pants for a put together look for school or work and accessorize with clean cut geometric jewelery.  A black, leather bag or satchel ties in perfectly with this look if you are on the go.

Burnt Orange Pants: H&M

On Campus Fashion: Graphic Patterns

Featuring on campus fashion is of particular interest and importance to me as it allows me to showcase to my readers (you!) some of the unique, trendy ensembles that students are rocking, especially at my school.

Bold prints are all the rave this season, but if your style is more low-key and you are looking to tone it down for a more mysterious night out, opt for this all black look with an attention-grabbing, bold skirt. Add a chrome blue clutch for a pop of color, too.

 Check out today's On Campus Fashionista below and let me know what you think!
