Elements of Cherry’s Outfit
1. Versatile Dress
You can see that Cherry isn't afraid to let her hair down and embrace the warm weather with this bold mini dress - a college girl’s fashion staple. The versatility of this dress allows her to wear it almost anywhere on campus, while its floral pattern and flowy nature speak to the simplicity of Cherry’s approach to fashion.
2. Buckled Sandals
Cherry’s metallic buckled sandals are practical for walking around campus and serve as fashionable flip flop alternatives, demonstrating that you don’t have to sacrifice comfort to be trendy. Here, Cherry shows us how to incorporate cute and simple sandals into a look for class.
3. Neutral Braided Belt
This skinny braided belt is an accessory that can enhance any outfit. Against Cherry’s tropical blue floral dress, the belt cinches and accents her waistline while creating an interesting color and texture contrast.
4. Handcrafted Boho Gold Cuff
Cherry spices up her springtime inspired frock with simple jewelry, namely this handcrafted boho-chic gold cuff. Its hammered and textured appearance with various lines adds an organic feel to the look. By wearing it alone, Cherry elevates the simple cuff to statement piece status.
