Although residents of South Florida did not get to step out in their best winter wear this past winter, they still can during the spring. All one has to do is be a little creative and turn some of their winter items into spring outfits.
“When I came back to Boca from winter break I brought back a lot of my winter clothing because it was getting cooler before I left,” said Lauren Pineau, senior. “Out of all the clothes I brought back, I only got to wear four of them before the heat returned.”
With a little cutting, sewing, folding and tucking a new outfit can be made. A great winter item that everyone has that can be turned into an easy outfit is a scarf.
Scarves are very versatile, one could make a sundress, maxi skirt, top or even a kimono out of one scarf without even having to cut and sew. To make a dress, all one does is wrap the scarf around them, take two ends and tie them in a knot around their neck.
“I wish I would have thought about trying to do this before I went shopping,” said Alexa Juanteguy, freshman. “I know my bank account wishes I did too.”
Another set of items that are golden and useful are flannels and button-down shirts. Celebrities such as Rihanna, Gigi Hadid and Khloe Kardashian have turned these shirts into a spring off-the-shoulder look with just a tucking. To have the same look as them, this spring all an individual has to do is button the shirt up half way, pull the sleeves off the shoulder, tuck the extra fabric inside the shirt and pair it with a denim skirt.
“I need to look in my closet and see what I can change into a new look for this season,” said Silva Dyett, freshman.
Something as simple as a sweater can be transformed into a fashion-forward look with just a little cutting and sewing here and there.
