Style of the Day

Elena Jiao

The brutal Ithaca winter is finally clearing up, with the temperature increasing to positive digits. We can thankfully put those puffy down jackets and snowboots to rest.

Having said that, with leftover snow waiting to melt and without nature in bloom,  Spring isn’t exactly here either. It’s still just a bit too early, and too cold, to pull out the pastel floral dresses.

Katie Roscoe (CALS/AAP ‘19) shows us how to dress during this in-between state of Winter and Spring, rocking an effortlessly chic look.

Roscoe pairs a cobalt blue faux leather moto jacket with a cream destroyed turtleneck. The vegan jacket adds the perfect pop of color, eliciting the liveliness of Spring without going over the top: “this color really stood out compared to the classic black”

She keeps the bottom simple with a pair of navy bootcut jeans and suede ankle booties.

To not take away from the eye catching statement jacket, Roscoe kept bracelets to the minimum, with a slim Kappa Delta bangle and an oversized tortoiseshell watch.

Jewelry is also kept simple with a golden stud accompanied by a pair of classic pearl earrings.

Roscoe remarks “my favorite part of my outfit is definitely the jacket! Moto jackets have always been trending, but this color really stood out to me compared to the classic black.”

I absolutely love the entire look! This fashion-forward outfit is perfect for both a brunch with friends and strutting to class. Hope this has helped inspired your wardrobe choices during these winter blues.
