How to own your wardrobe this spring


By Bri Zeiberg ’19

Here comes the sun. The temperature is rising, which means it is time to prepare your wardrobe for the warmth. From accessories to clothing, spring always seems to offer a special collection of looks.

Sunglasses hold a double purpose: protecting your eyes from the sun and a way to add a unique accessory to your outfit. Transparent lenses and abstract frames have made a comeback and became a major statement piece for any outfit.

“I wear sunglasses all the time,” Bella Siskind ’19 said. “Transparent circular colored sunglasses are my favorite right now. I definitely will be wearing them this summer.”

Unique shades such as Siskinds can be worn anytime and add a flare to your look.

A cute way to switch up your style is to forget about typical flowy shorts and start wearing adorable ruffled skirts. Skirts are on the rise and are a cute way to cool off in the summer heat.

“This summer I started to wear skirts and then I fell in love. They are the perfect way to stay cool and be stylish in the summer heat,” Emma Rosenthal ’20 said.

Pairing a skirt with a small top and jean jacket is a perfect way to be comfortable and fashionable in the humid days awaiting us.

Rumour has it the color of spring/summer is yellow, and nothing is better than adding a bright statement piece to your look. Shine as bright as the sun with a yellow accent piece to your wardrobe.

Brooke Githens ’19 gave the example of a bright outfit, “A trendy yellow tee with distressed white jeans is an example of my ideal summer outfit.” Adding a little bit of sunshine to your outfit can go a long way.

A classic sandal is a comfortable yet simple way to complete your look. Whether you have on plain beige slip on sandals or rainbow pom-pom lace ups, sandals are always a go-to.

Upcycling your own clothing has also been a major trend over the media. Videos highlighting people making their clothing their own by distressing and sewing, have inspired many teens to do the same. By adding holes in your shirts or snipping it in a unique way is a one of a kind way to make your clothing your own.

So now it’s time to start shopping and designing your own lookbook for this upcoming season. Social media platforms are home to numerous ideas on how you can apply these trends to your daily style.
