There’s a newcomer on the teen scene and she is already making her name as a new style icon in my book. Until wiki-ing it I thought Nina Dobrev was around 17 years old, but turns out the Vampire Diaries star is actually 21. Between the fresh face and the prior connection to Degrassi she looks a lot younger than she is but that just means her style can be more playful which is exactly what this spread captured. Self magazine dressed Nina in Kate Spade, Nanette Lepore and Itsola all in a fun way that is screaming spring time that I await with bated breath each day. I think they’ve shown some fun new styles to incorporate this spring…
Super short shorts paired with a classic, demure jacket balance each other out for a chic but fun look.
For a business appropriate look skinny jeans and a blazer can do you no wrong. Try a printed blazer for a fun twist this spring. Also, a tote in a surprising print or color can “wake up” any black outfit.
Pastels will never go out for spring. Try mixing and matching for an easter egg-esque look that’s sweet but hot.
Wearing all one color can work if you switch up textures and prints.
And finally, go bold with a bright print that’ll help you stand out from the crowd.
Take a cue from Nina’s looks and build your own ways to have fun with fashion as the weather starts warming up, we may still have a ways to go over here in NYC, but a girl has to look forward to something! And for me, it’s sundresses and sandals of all kinds.
