Spring is upon us, which means fresh flowers and brunches on the patio. It also means it’s time for spring fashion. Fun florals, easy-breezy fabrics, and bright pops of color are all welcome. That said, it can sometimes be difficult to transition from winter fashion to spring fashion. After all those months wearing neutrals or darker colors, how can a fashionista stay on top of the new spring trends?
We’ve got you covered with these tips on how to spice up your wardrobe and make a simple spring outfit stand out.
If you’re wearing…Jeans and a White T-Shirt
This is a classic look that makes a great starting point for any spring outfit, whether you’re wearing it to the office, happy hour, or both. The beauty of jeans and a crisp, white t-shirt is that it’s like a blank canvas; the possibilities are endless! To liven up your top, opt for a bold statement necklace that shows your personality. Don’t be afraid of sparkle or bold colors. It’ll contrast beautifully with the stark white. Even better if you throw on some matching earrings!
Another way to add some flare is with some fun rings. It’s okay if they’re dainty; just layer them with 2-3 on each finger, giving you a Grecian goddess-type vibe that’s perfect for spring.
A Little Black Dress (LBD)
Who doesn’t love an LBD? It’s a simple choice and it looks great year-round. But to make it right for spring, it’s all about what you do to compliment the LBD. That means making use of the right accessories, like footwear, your bag, and even your hair and makeup. Try pairing your little black dress with some bold shoes. Some ideas include some bright, chunky heels (purple is looking to be a hot color this spring) or even some sneakers to dress it down and make it a bit more casual.
For your purse or bag, try to prioritize fun colors and unique textures. For example, a purse in a light, spring-inspired pastel with a crochet knit or some feathers can add some much-needed whimsy to your look. In terms of hair and makeup, springtime is all about looking fresh-faced and natural. Try some tussled, beachy waves with minimal eye makeup and some simple mascara. If you’re feeling daring, throw on a bold neon lip.
A Pencil Skirt
Pencil skirts are another great staple in your wardrobe, regardless of the season. But the end of winter and start of spring means your pencil skirt is due for a pop of color! You can accomplish this by accessorizing with a colorful belt, which not only accentuates your waist but also adds an element of fun to your outfit. If you’re feeling creative, you can even drape a long necklace around your pencil skirt and wear it as a belt! We recommend necklaces with lots of charms, so the belt/necklace can really make a statement.
Some Tried And True Ways To Make Any Look Fit For Spring…Get Your Nails Done
Doesn’t your whole look feel so much more put together when your nails are done? It’s like the cherry on top! Now that winter is behind us, it’s time to trade out the deep reds of winter and embrace the bright, whimsical colors and designs of springtime. Some ideas include ombre nails, solid white with a colorful accent nail, and designs featuring lovely florals.
Add a Hat
Springtime means the sun is back out to play, making hats a must-have for anyone who plans on spending a lot of time outside. Not only are hats functional, but the right style of hat can make your outfit undeniably spring. Trade out your knitted winter cap for some floppy-brimmed sun hats, which are perfect for the beach as well as a day spent in town. Other hat trends this year include bucket hats, boater hats, and wide-brimmed hats, all of which can add an air of effortless cool to your outfits.
Choose Some Bold Bracelets
After months of wearing long sleeves and sweaters, you can’t wait to bust out your tank tops and sleeveless dresses. That leaves your arms and wrists available for some prime springtime accessorizing. Throw on a bracelet that would have otherwise been hidden under your winter layers, preferably one with something a little extra, like some bold stones or dangly charms. Don’t be afraid of more unconventional bracelets either, like a funky arm cuff.
Take a break from spring cleaning and expand your wardrobe with the perfect accessories. You can try any and all of these tips to add a splash of springtime to your outfits. As with all fashion trends, they’re great as a jumping off point. The most important thing to remember when creating looks and accessorizing for spring is to be adventurous. Don’t be afraid to try new things or get out of your comfort zone. After all, fashion favors the bold!
