The weather in central Pennsylvania, especially around springtime, is bound to be temperamental. Unfortunately, aside from keeping a ready eye on the weather app, there’s not much we can do to plan ahead for the rapidly changing weather. Luckily, the outfits listed below are adaptable to spring and can help anyone stay comfortable and fashionable.

Classy, chic, timeless — Princess Diana was the people’s princess for a reason. Aside from the compassion and humanitarian work that she was well known for, she was a fashion icon as well. This look is perfect for going to class or taking a walk around campus.

All you need is a big sweater, biker shorts, tennis shoes, black sunglasses and simple gold jewelry.
