Spring College Fashion Outlook for Women
After an especially harsh winter, female students are going to be pretty darn happy to ditch their parkas and put on polka dots. But what are the hottest looks going to be this spring?
Here’s a mixed bag of college fashion predictions from fashion blogs coast to coast . . .
Duke University’s Daily Fashion Blog predicts that sexy strappy sandals will be the have-to-have item on campuses once the snow disappears. You can wear them in many colors. According to the Duke blogger, this kind of sandal will be hot because “it calls attention to your feet.”
The College Candy fashion blogger says that you better get a purse that’s called a Jessica McClintock Mini Bark Embossed Bag. That name is deceptive, since this purse is not designed to carry a Chihuahua. It is actually an elegant purse with an exterior that is embossed with a tree-bark-like pattern.
The College Fashion Blog recommends straw hats for students who are heading to warm climes for Spring Break. When they return to campus, they should show off their tans by donning a Madewell tank top.
Ethos Magazine Online’s fashionista, Breanne Gratton, feels that the best way to ward off April showers will be to tote a clear plastic bubble umbrella like the ones used by the characters on Gossip Girl. What will you be keeping dry? Gratton recommends one of the spiffy new polka-dot dresses just introduced by Mark Jacobs.
La Petite Fashionsta blogger will be wearing skinny cargo pants and a slouchy cargo bag, both from Union Bay. It’s a skinny slouchy kind of thing, apparently.
And what if you are a male college student?
You can probably keep wearing anything you want, just like you did during the winter. But why should you care? You’ll be occupied watching all those campus women in their skinny, slouchy, strappy, polka-dot, tree-bark-embossed stuff. And they will hopefully be looking at you.
Looking and looking. With spring in the air, what could be better than that?
