Spring will be here and most of us are starting to think about the clothes we will be wearing. This article provides tips about ways to instantly update your wardrobe for spring. Although we appreciate clothes and accessories that are feminine and modern, we also want them to be very comfortable and extremely wearable. The best part about the new fashions for spring, as far as makeup goes, there’s a trend toward a more natural look.
The palette is softer. “The colors are more muted with very natural embellishments. And now I’m not talking about makeup, I’m talking about clothes – if you’ve been keeping up with what’s hot according to the runways and fashion magazines then you know that White is clearly a favorite, with neutrals a close second. But fashion is always changing – while one designer may opt for pastels another one might do a complete line in bold bright colors and prints that you love. Always stay on top of things! When whites and neutrals are mixed with color, the look is softer and very contemporary. Try navy with white (for the ever-popular nautical look), yellow, chocolate brown and oatmeal as complementary color tones. Graphic black and white combos look surprisingly fresh.
Perhaps the biggest options are spring’s array of pants-they run the gamut from cropped, short-shorts, wide gauchos to Bermuda shorts/skimmers. Also look for slender capris, long, slouchy trousers and even high-waisted sailor pants. Feminine blouses are the ideal accompaniment: Choose a billowing, Victorian-style ruffled blouse, or the classic, always-in-style button down – but crop tops are making a come back – for those daring enough to wear them. The little black dress will never go out of style, but in the spring it is often replaced by “the little white dress,” with light, feminine detailing.
Jackets are back. Look for cropped, fitted jackets, as well as military-inspired styles: very tailored with high necks. In fact, jackets of just about every type are stylish these days, as are cardigans – and many of the jackets are styled with detailed and or angled hemlines. Today’s skirts are longer and feminine: tulip shapes, bubble skirts and multi-tiered versions.
If your handbag isn’t big enough to carry everything you need you can always pick up a great tote bag. Strappy shoes are always great. Accessories are important – and many designers are opting for colorful rather than simply gold or silver metal with diamonds. Bold and bright seems to be the style – but in good taste.
The good news is, you probably already have several articles of clothing that will be perfect for this season. So use these tips and look through what you already have, then add a few new thing to instantly update your wardrobe for spring.
