What to Wear for Springfest

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Brandeis chapter.

Springfest 2014 is right around the corner and if you’re not quite sure what to wear, you’ve come to right place! The theme this year is “Beach Party,” so you can get pretty creative with it. Now, New England weather can be a bit unpredictable, so you should probably keep that in the back of your mind as you find the perfect outfit (even though it might feel nice when the sun is out, it gets chilly when the sun goes down)! Check out the looks below!

This outfit is a two-in-one: what looks like a cute tank top tucked into high-waisted shorts is actually a bathing suit, which is perfect for the beach! Top it off with a hat, sunglasses, and sandals, and you’re beach ready!


If you’re not into one-piece bathing suits, you could also go for this look with a bikini, paired with a light tank top and shorts! And if you want a more sporty-chic look, the sneakers are a must (plus you’ll probably be more comfortable)!


If you don’t want to sport a swimsuit, but still want the same kind of look, you could try something more like this!


And if you get cold easily, this is a warmer version of the previous look!


Maybe shorts aren’t your favorite, and you want to wear a skirt. This look is flirty and fun, and still has a beachy-bohemian feel to it!


And if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, you can always go with the classic sundress!

You can substitute pretty much any part of these outfits for something you already have (i.e., an awesome band t-shirt, or something of the like) or something a friend will let you borrow, so you don’t have to go buy a bunch of new clothes for one jam-packed (get it? jam-packed) afternoon.


Now, you can’t forget hairstyles:Fishtail – this fun braid is super easy and totally cute! Tutorial

Messy Bun – Messy buns are the best! They are effortless and quirky-cute! Tutorial

And just for fun, you could always wear a nice beach hat!

What matters most is that you have fun and feel great in what you’re wearing! And don’t forget sunscreen (you can still get a sunburn on a mildly cloudy day)!

I love watching movies, reading, writing, being a ginger, singing, dancing, acting, and attending Brandeis University.
