It may not feel like it, but spring is just around the corner. Soon the snow will melt, the sun will shine, and our wardrobes will finally get the lifeline they have so desperately needed. Although winter may still be in full swing, there is no better time than now to start preparing your spring wardrobe. Not only will you be ready for the turning of the seasons, but preparing your spring wardrobe will help lift the winter blues as it will have you thinking about warmer days. Without further adieu, here are some quick tips to help you get your wardrobe ready for spring.
Spring is your chance to break free from the traditional dark clothes that you have been dying to store away for months now. Start your spring wardrobe right by buying bright colored shirts that will emulate the colors of spring. These can be button ups, polos, or even plain tees, as long as you stray away from the traditionally safe colors of gray, back, and blue. For pants, look for a straight leg khaki that will compliment your new shirts and pair it with a pair of tan loafers that are darker than your pants. Remember, spring is all about kicking back and looking comfortable, so take this chance to let your true style shine and make sure you look as good as you feel.
Break Free from the Traditional Suit
Colors aren’t just for your casual wear. If you wear a suit to work, mix it up by wearing a light colored dress shirt that will give your suit a fresh look. Everybody wears white or light blue shirts under their suits. Break free from the mold and wear colors that you don’t see every day at the office. Pair the shirt with a complementary colored tie that will help make you looking like you are ready for nicer weather (but still want to get work done). Everyday can’t be casual Friday, but you can look great everyday with this small twist to your suit.
Spring may mean warmer weather, but we all know that a sunny day can turn sour in five minutes. In order to stay warm, wear a blazer with your new found color way of shirts. If you prefer something other than blazers, look for a cardigan or thin pull over sweater. Remember to look for light colors when selecting these items, but if you plan on wearing it with a light colored shirt don’t go overboard. A light tan cardigan or sweater will match great with your new shirts. These items will help keep you warm this spring while maintaining the warm and colorful look of the season.
Remember to stray away from the safe grays, blacks, and blues that you have been wearing all winter. Be bold and bring some color to your wardrobe; after all, no one wants to look like they are stuck in the gloom of winter when the sun is out. Stay stylish, stay comfortable.
