From the Runway to the Streets: Spring Break Fashion
By Anya Haber
As finals come to a close, there is one thing on students’ minds: spring break. As students flood to the beaches, sleep off their exhaustion or just hang around Atlanta, the common query of what to wear predictably arises. Dressing in coffee-stained sweats is no longer a necessary evil. While I firmly believe that people should dress in their own style rather than being a slave to trend after trend, there are a few universal style options that one could embrace over the break. These suggestions could easily be incorporated into any outfit, whether it’s as simple as a small accessory or as thorough as a head-to-toe look. Glossing over the Spring 2016 Ready-To-Wear runway shows for inspiration, I’ve summarized a list so you don’t have to.
With the warm weather finally rolling in, the obvious option is to run to your more fitted garments: tiny shorts, crop tops, etc. Why not try and take a page out of the Spring 2016 Ready-To-Wear collections of Céline, Gucci, and Simone Rocha and opt for a long, flowing silhouette? No matter your spring break plans, a looser silhouette made from a thin, breathable fabric will feel comfortable and look amazing at the same time. If tight clothing is your preference, you can opt for another Spring ’16 RTW favorite: prints. Whether it’s delicately floral like Rocha’s collection, monochromatic like J.W. Anderson, or the crazy prints at Gucci, you’ll be sure to stand out and feel good about what you’re wearing at the same time.
So when you’re heading to PCB or just hitting up a local farmer’s market, remember: loose, breathable silhouettes, prints, and, of course, your favorite pair of sunglasses.
