A little (emphasis on little) bit of trendiness never hurt
anyone. In the case of this University, it could only help.

Ann Arbor may not be known as a fashion epicenter, and while
strong school athletics inspire the house of Steve and Barry, the
coming Spring is the perfect time to bring Seventh Avenue to State
Street.

It only takes a brief glance through this month’s fashion
magazines to see the whimsical mood of the season’s looks.
Bright sorbet shades of lime green and electric blue promise to
lift spirits. Cowboy boots and chunky heels add a twist to every
female’s shoe fetish. The perennial favorite for both male
and female co-eds, the preppy look, is updated and reinvigorated
with streamlined tailoring and eye-catching hues.

Look for gold pieces to take over last year’s silver
obsession and shrunken jackets aim to erase the puffy-jacket
plague. Indeed, it is a time to breathe new life into our
wardrobes!

These days, the leading trends from the runways can easily be
transported to any college student’s closet. Prada’s
’50s-inspired collection can be channeled by wearing a
printed, full skirt and the boudoir ethos of Dolce & Gabbana is
captured just by simply letting a swatch of lacy lingerie peek
out.

Perhaps the most “must-have” of Spring pieces is the
trench coat. Providing a chic cover from the erratic weather, the
trench is a smart classic to add into one’s couture rotation.
Can’t splurge for Chanel’s very coveted tweed-trimmed
trench? Do not fret — styles from lower-priced lines ensure
that you can still play with front-row fashion.
