Street Smart: Comfortable Statement-Making
by Chloe Karaskiewicz
Natural is often understood as neutral but with spring taking over Madison it’s time to add color to the bare winter landscape. Adding a spot of color gives a look a focal point and brings back the liveliness lost in winter neutrals. Spotted in Van Hise, Junior Lydia Caswell triumphs over a bleak morning with an apple in hand and wearing bright, ankle brushing pants with minimalist accessories.
‘Simple’ has been given a bad connotation, but in the fashion world, as Lydia shows, a big statement can be made with chic simplicity. Lydia’s style is influenced by comfort and her desire for clothes made of real fabrics and materials. A staple in her daily style is her one-of-a-kind bag: a commissioned leather piece that entirely epitomizes her simply chic, naturalistic taste.
