Put Spring in your Step With Some Changes

After such a frigid and snowy winter, spring couldn’t come soon enough. Ladies, it is

getting warmer out, and that means it is time to put your fleece lined leggings and long sleeved

shirts into long overdue retirement! Go ahead and break out your razor, shaving cream, and

warmer weather clothing items because it is time to show off your great legs…and style.

You may think that this means forsaking your comfort and all the cash you have in your

wallet if your spring and summer wardrobe needs an update, but this simply isn’t true. You can

keep up with the latest fashion trends in your everyday life by using some of the well-loved

“essentials” you already have in your closet to mix-and-match with new trendy purchases.

This spring, flowing, A-line skirts are a definite must, if you do not already have one (or

a few) stored in your wardrobe. Try fun prints and colors that are sure to make a statement and

match the fun, carefree vibe of spring. Such a fun skirt looks good on anyone and can be worn

for any occasion. No matter where you go, out with friends, a job interview, or the office, you

will look cute, but also professional.

The U.K. brand Oasis has a great selection of funky printed lengthy skirts and they ship

to the U.S. Skirts on their webpage Oasis-Store.com range from about $68 to $115. If you make

one spring clothing purchase this season, this should be it!

Although their pieces are a little pricey for starving college students, it is important to

remember that a great statement piece is worth the extra cash because of the amount of wear you

can get out of it.

Their gorgeous botanical “Bloom Bird Textured Skirt” is $97 and can be paired with a

standard off-hand loose fitting t-shirt or black tank top and colorful mid heels in the spring and

summer. Keep the look alive in the fall and winter with a cool blazer, dark tights, and booties.

If you think a bold skirt is too much of a fashion risk for you, uniquely patterned

shoes can make just as much of a fashion statement as any other clothing garment. Wear your

statement shoes with a neutral or light tone outfit such a flow-y white tank, black leggings or

capris, and a few slender bangles. Oasis has a few beautiful floral heels debuting this season, and

the designer Betsey Johnson, known for her outrageous designs, always has trendy prints on her

pieces. Check out her pink and purple leopard print “Contro Pump” on DSW.com for $99.95.

Whatever your style, fashion is about wearing items that make you look and feel good

because of the confidence you have in yourself.
