With spring just around the corner, it’s time to start prepping for a wardrobe transition. We don’t know about you, but we’re craving lighter fabrics, softer colors, and basically anything other than hefty wool sweaters and puffy coats.We love spring because of the colors and prints that it brings with it. When it comes to mastering spring style, there are several tips you can try that will make welcoming spring a lot easier.
Before you can start putting together spring outfits, you’ve got to make sure you’ve got the essentials to pull from: sundresses, maxi skirts/dresses, cardigans, colorful accessories, sleeveless tops, spring prints (florals, stripes, polka dots), Bermuda shorts, mix & match separates.
The most popular spring print is undoubtedly floral. But instead of just taking the simple route and wearing a floral piece alone, try mixing things up by wearing a contrasting print with it.
The key to mixing prints is to keep the two pieces within the same color family and combine prints of different sizes. Adding in a simple texture like denim will also pull your look together and tone it down as needed.
Spring is one season where you can use layering to your advantage. Depending on where you live, you may or may not have cool spring weather. But if you’re going to be indoors, there’s a chance you’ll want a little something to cover you with. This is where a spring staple like a cardigan comes in handy. You can easily tie a cardigan around your waist when you don’t need it, and throw it right back on when the chill sets in.
Spring is all about mixing & matching, and layering pieces help you do just that.
On those spring days when you’re doing a very basic look, you can easily add charm to your outfit with accessories. Try a scarf in a fun spring print, or jewelry in bright spring colors. Add a pop of color with your shoes, or go with a handbag that takes your look up a notch.
Sneakers are another warm-weather must-have, and we love that they come in so many styles now, from sleek athletic looks to suede slip ons to dorky dad styles. But it’s spring, so we want our sneakers in fun prints. Whether you choose high top or low, a pair of kicks in a print is one of the best ways we can think of to spring-up your look.
We’ve always thought having a trend-right blazer in any season is a great way to top off a wide variety of looks—from dressing up a tee and jeans to throwing on over a flirty dress on date night. Luckily for your closet, pastel blazers in all shades are something you’ll be seeing a lot of. We love a pretty pale yellow, but look for a pastel shade you love.
