Spring has arrived and the fashion runways were filled with everything from ruffles, bows, glitter, geometric patterns, to pleats. So if you are thinking you don’t have any of these items in your closet, don’t worry. The best trend is what makes you feel your best! In addition to the various styles this season, the weather has some people confused. In some cities, the first day of spring was welcomed with a snow storm while others found themselves on the beach. These constant changes in temperature can make getting dressed a daily conundrum. The main point is not to worry too much about following each spring trend but use key transition pieces that will carry you into the warmer months. I’ve put together three outfit ideas that are spring ready straight from my closet.
The first outfit incorporates an oversized top with stylish jogger pants. Spring is about comfort and these pants are loose and only fitted at the ankles. This slouchy top is balanced out by the pants. This outfit is great for a casual weekend brunch with friends or just running errands.
The second outfit takes a winter sweater dress and pairs it with a leather jacket for a spring look. Sweater dresses are great for the inconsistent temperatures and the geometric lines are trendy and stylish at the same time. The leather jacket and thick heeled boots paired with this slender fitting dress create an unexpected spring look that is edgy and feminine at the same time.
Lastly, florals are always perfect for spring. In addition, rose quartz is the Pantone color of the year and you can never go wrong with pink! For an easy spring look, try these cool slacks paired with a floral blouse and off white coat. This outfit is great for the office or for a family brunch. Pastel colors are spring favorites and can easily be mix and matched with other pieces in your closet.
Spring gives us a chance to take a new look at the items in our closet. Make your outfits loose and relaxed or edgy or even colorful. Keep it simple and light and you are on your way to conquering spring!
