Dressing for an early spring

by Marisol Dorantes
Friday, Jan. 11 — Fifty degrees in January? Even for Michigan weather, that is obscene. One of the biggest challenges about drastically fluctuating temperatures is dressing for the day. This morning’s balmy air called for a lightweight jacket — but later on, when the temperature drops, spring attire might be a huge mistake. Editor’s note: Friday Fashion Pulse is a new weekly feature on lansingcitypulse.com. We hit the streets to find the latest fashion trends exhibited by those in the Lansing area. The author’s work has appeared on the website, College Fashionista.

Plaid-itude is no platitude

by Marisol Dorantes
Friday, Jan. 25 — Besides the tiny pops of color peeking out from under heavy jackets, in general, winter clothing color schemes are monochromatic and pattern-free. Plaid, however, is one of the few designs that survives this color hibernation. The multi-colored, cross-barred fabric is used for scarves, flannels and headbands, among many other things. Finding the pattern is clearly not a difficult task, but seeing it in a new way is difficult. Remarkably, the plaid that made me do a double take was a muted winter coat.

by Marisol Dorantes
Friday, Feb. 1 — We all have those days when we’re just not up to dressing in the flashiest outfit in our wardrobe — when casual Friday becomes the theme of any given day. What to do when such a dilemma strikes? When the mood calls for a laid-back look, the easiest way to keep it trendy is by accessorizing.

by Marisol Dorantes
Friday, Feb. 15 — A distinguishing trait of February is the screaming color red — you can thank Valentine’s Day for that. Red can be an overwhelming color to incorporate into a look, but if done right, the results can be stunning. Nailah Brown and Kaitlin Polzin, both Michigan State University students, found two different — but equally expert — ways to dress their best in red.

Worldly inspiration

by Marisol Dorantes
Friday, March 1 — This week, instead of just talking about where Lansing fashionistas go shopping, I decided to explore the areas where these trendsetters shop for inspiration.
