Spring Fashion Tips

Looking at the weather is the most influential factor to consider when forming outfits. It helps determine whether or not to wear something light or layered. 

“A few of my spring fashion tips would be to check the weather. I do this to help structure my outfits based on whether it’s cold, hot, windy, cloudy, or sunny,” said MCHS sophomore Marybeth Ruiz. 

As for looking for spring essentials, there are various options you can explore.

“I either view Amazon for specific items at affordable prices, view H&M, utilize hand-me-downs, or even view garments that I may be able to style from stores like Ross or Marshalls,” said Echeverria. 

Most importantly, although it’s fun to be on-trend, what matters is to wear whatever makes you happy, whether it’s a trend or not!

“Don’t be afraid to throw on a hoodie and jeans on those days where you just want to be comfortable. Also don’t feel like you have to build outfits that tie into current trends of any season, wear whatever you feel comfortable in,” said Ruiz. 

“Wear whatever you feel comfortable in! Never allow others’ opinions to influence your personal style! Remain authentic, having an inspiration is wonderful, and making it into your creation is even more delightful,” Echeverria said.
