As temperatures begin to rise, students are swapping out their winter jackets with t-shirts for the springtime.
Isabelle Mazgaj, a sophomore business major, said that her favorite spring outfit consists of wide leg jeans, white sneakers, and a cropped t-shirt with a long sleeve cardigan. She said she also wears lighter jackets.
“I like to really wear clothing I can layer since it is typically chillier in the morning and warmer in the afternoon,” Mazgaj said.
Bianca Polizzi, a sophomore biology major, said she decides what she wears depending on if the day is colder or warmer. On a cold spring day, she said she wears jogger pants, a crop top and a jacket. On a warmer day, Polizzi said she wears a dress and a jacket.
“The most important thing is having some type of jacket because the weather varies so drastically,” Polizzi said.
Cameron Harrington, a sophomore business major, agreed.
“A light sweatshirt comes in handy at night time because it tends to get cold,” Harrington said.
Students also have a color scheme to their spring wardrobe. Both Mazgaj and Polizzi said that in the spring, they tend to wear more neutral colors.
“I wear either neutral like light tans or lighter browns,” Polizzi said. “Sometimes, even pastels, but I always stay away from anything dark.”
Mazgaj added that she also “gravitates to pastels and lighter colors as well.”
“I see the colors I wear in the spring as the beginning of my transition to brighter summer colors,” Mazgaj said.
Spring fashion also includes accessorizing. Mazgaj said she loves adding small, dainty jewelry to her outfits all year, but especially in the spring. She said that she layers necklaces and wears a ring or two, as well as claw clips and a little purse.
Polizzi said that she also loves rings and necklaces.
“I feel like, in the spring, you aren’t wearing as much as a high neckline, so I feel like statement necklaces can add a nice pop of personality,” Polizzi said.
