Nothing shouts that warm weather is finally here more than pockets of girls spread throughout campus wearing their favorite summer-themed dresses.
If you thought nothing’s been easier since the grab-n-go section of the Union, then you haven’t experienced “fab-n-go”. The simplicity of the modern dress is an essential necessity to any girl’s closet. A women’s worst nightmare while getting dressed in the morning is the dreaded pairing of colors. The only pairing dresses require is a pair of cute sandals, wedges, or flats.
It’s also probably a proven fact somewhere that you feel even the tiniest boost of confidence simply by wearing a dress. It’s the idea that to others you’re trying harder to look good when in reality it took half the effort (oops… the secret’s out).
A floral print dress is a fun and festive way to show warm weather you’re happy it’s finally arrived! Junior Adela Antal wears her vibrantly colored sun dress with a lightweight jean jacket perfect for the chilly morning walks to class. As the newly budding flowers begin to pop, Antal does the same as she’s sure to catch your eye in this florescent piece.
While floral prints are in and big right now, don’t overlook single-toned dresses when planning your warm-weather wardrobe. A red dress makes quite the summer-y statement as shown by sophomore Jordan Tiburzi. A pair of casual sneakers demonstrates how easily a dress can become the perfect “going to class” ensemble as it incorporates both comfort and a cute factor.
Patterned or plain, look how perfect the two pair together! Juniors Katherine Edelman (L) and Alia Burlew show off their fashionable finds while embracing the brighter, warmer days. Edelman’s statement necklace works to compliment her dress, giving it the perfect amount of detail. Burlew has her work taken care of as she allows her printed piece to do the talking for her, showing once again how underestimated the power of a dress can be.
There’s no questioning that dresses are an absolute must have for any girls wardrobe. As the spring season beckons, give your pants a break and explore the multitude of options there are when it comes to dresses!
