As the winter season is transitioning to spring, so are our wardrobes.

Sophomore Alison Ryncarz is the creator a fashion blog called 'The Flare'. I sat down with her to talk about fashion trends that can be translated through different seasons.

"Well, I think that there are a lot of trends in the winter that you don't want to let go of. I love winter pieces and when it comes to Spring, it's great to kind of shed the layers and get some new things going in terms of trends. But at the same time, there are a lot of things that you can bring from winter into spring. Three of the trends that I really enjoy wearing in the spring are: leather, sweaters and boots," Ryncarz said.

Ryncarz showed us some of her personal favorites from her own closet and first-year student, Lindsey Lanquist modeled the three outift ensembles.

The first trend Ryncarz explained was sweaters. She paired a white, cable knit sweater with a floral mini skirt, and a cheetah printed belt with a pair of nude sandals.

"Sweaters are a really easy piece to wear in the spring if you're walking to class or if it's late at night; it's a really easy layering piece," Ryncarz said.

The second trend Ryncarz talked about was leather. Ryncarz paired a leather skirt with a coral top and a pair of flowery pumps.

Although leather may be considered a type of material only appropriate to wear in the fall and winter, Ryncarz said that pairing the piece with brighter colors makes it the perfect spring outfit.

The final trend were boots. Ryncarz paired cargo skinny pants with a pair of black Steve Madden combat boots. She balanced the heavier bottom half of the outfit with an off-white lace top and a bold necklace.

Incorporating winter trends into your spring wardrobe is not only creative, but also budget friendly.

"It's a great way, especially for college students on a budget to revamp your wardrobe without totally emptying your wallet," Ryncarz said.

The clothing pieces that Ryncarz showed are only a few of many that can be worn as the temperatures begin to rise.
