Spring Your Wardrobe Into The Season
We're a couple of weeks into spring and while most of the northern hemisphere is still dealing with a chill in the air it doesn't mean we can't get into a spring state of mind. Just think of these extra chilling days as more time to prep your closet and drawers to look fabulous this spring. Let's start from the top! While we still need to wear sleeves during the day and night the materials we wear can get a bit lighter. Out with the wool and in with the light cottons and linens. My favorite spring "jackets" happen to be fitted blazers that do double duty as keeping me styling AND warm. Darker blazers are great all year round but I like to debut my white, and lightly patterned ones when spring hits. When it comes to skirts a longer and looser cut is best for spring because it compliments bare legs best. Fit and flare seems to be the cut of the spring season yet again. This cut is great for any body type because if you have large hips the flat helps give a fun and flirty silhouette and if you have narrow hips it'll give your body some balance. Going down to the shoes now it's time to put away the shiny patent leather closed toe pumps and bust out some peep toed shoes. Light strappy sandals and wedges are ready to make their debut as well. Cream is a color that has been dominating spring footwear and it's for a great reason. It compliments all skin tones and lets us get away with florals, stripes and paisley prints without looking too busy. It's a win-win. Overall spring is a time to lighten the wardrobe in terms of fabrics and colors. If you want to keep some dark colors, like navy for example I you're into the nautical look, just make sure to balance it out with white, cream and very light pastels to be the person everyone's complementing every time you head into work, brunch and everything in between. Now put away the tights and form fitting clothes and let loose this spring. Your body and mirror will thank you for it!
