While spring is still officially almost a month away, now is the time when I start wishing it were already here. Our winter has lasted all of about a day and a half, and with so many sunny days that just make me want to put on a pretty spring dress with a great new pair of sandals (haven't decided which ones yet) and go have a picnic with the kids or walk around the arboretum and see all the lovely flowers in bloom, it might as well be spring…
But whether it’s officially spring or not, it’s definitely not too early to start thinking about how to bring your wardrobe into spring. While transitioning your wardrobe into spring can seem like a big challenge, it doesn’t have to be. Adding in a few simple elements can work wonders to transform your wardrobe staples into a fresh look for spring. Here are some wonderful additions to begin adding into your wardrobe right now. They’ll have you humming…’it might as well be spring… too!
1/Polka dots – What more fun print can you add to your wardrobe than polka dots? Whether you’re daring enough to opt for a polka dot print dress or want to spice up your look in a more subtle way with a dotted scarf, handbag or shoes, you’ll be spot on for spring! Choose a classic combination of white polka dots on navy for a fresh look or the bold and contemporary combination of khaki and orange to give your look a chic twist. Try adding a polka dot top beneath your business suit, add a dotted scarf to liven up your white tee or pop open a polka dotted umbrella for fun.
2/ Color Block – A fresh way to add in color, color blocking can make a serious statement or add a subtle touch to your style. Try a color blocked dress in neutrals for an unexpected spin or let a pair of color blocked shoes jazz up your classic pieces. A color blocked handbag or necklace are also wonderful ways to bring a shot of style to your wardrobe.
3/ Lace – Flirty, fun and unabashedly feminine, lace is a hot look for spring and can be worn in as many different ways as you can imagine. Lace this spring comes in neutrals as well as bold, bright hues. Try a lovely orange lace dress for a whimsical and ladylike take on the trend. Filigree jewelry or lacy shoes add a little girlish charm to your look. And don’t forget how a simple lace blouse adds a dash of elegance and sophistication to your office wear or even with a pair of jeans.
The trends this season are going to be lots of fun and I want to encourage you to put your own spin on them to make your look all you! Whatever you embrace this season, make sure it’s a look you LOVE and you can’t go wrong!
