Lighter and Brighter, Shanghai Railway Station
It seemed for a while there like winter would never end in Shanghai, but if sartorial cues are telling at all of the weather then I would say things look like they are finally getting lighter and brighter.
I went to Beijing this past weekend and it seemed like every other person at the train station was itching to get out of their heavy, drab winter garb that they’ve been donning for close to half a year and put on something more playful, but some were still understandably unsure of the weather… But these spirited individuals preferred cold and cool to warm and boring.
I mean, it’s already April and most Shanghaiers have yet to hang up those winter coats… But the weather is finally decent enough to wear more spring-appropriate (read colorful and graphic) gear.
I’m loving all the colors and prints and patterns and textures that have seemingly come out of hibernation over night, and I’m excited to document another spring in Shanghai and elsewhere in China.
Even some of the cooler kids brave the still-nippy weather to wear something more eye-catching.
