By now we have all been suffering from spring fever for at least the last month. While Mother Nature has been slightly off her game this year, we are all aware of the difficulty of dressing for the weather during the weeks of seasonal transition between winter and spring. How do you properly prepare for a full day out and about on campus when the weather can change thirty degrees in only a few short hours? One word: layers. I know everyone is itching to pull out their favorite spring outfits, and there is no reason you can’t start wearing them now with just a few extra staple pieces until the weather warms up permanently!

Light sweaters and jackets will be your best friend, keeping you warm in the morning and evening, and easily removed when it heats up mid-day. Loosely knit sweaters like the one shown here are extremely popular this spring, as they are the perfect weight for such drastically changing temperatures. Throw one over a cute crop top and high-waisted jeans or capris, and you have the perfect outfit for a full day around campus.

Being able to add spring flair to your outfit without being too warm or cold is important, and can easily be achieved with a pop of color! It’s the perfect time of year to wear your favorite pairs of pastel colored skinny jeans to lighten up even the rainiest of spring days. Pair them with a sheer blouse or just a plain V-neck and a floral scarf and you have a perfect outfit with little effort! As for shoes, ladies, there is no more snow on the ground so strut your stuff in your boat shoes, canvas sneakers, or flats of your choosing. With that being said there is no reason you can’t still wear riding boots until it gets toastier. Fair warning though, it is transition weather so rain is forecasted often and at any time; be prepared with a cute pair of rain boots.
