It might be the height of winter right now, but before you know it, spring will be here and you’ll need to swap your chunky knits and parka coat for lightweight blouses and thin jackets. Spring can be a tricky time of the year to dress for because it’s not quite warm enough to ditch the thick winter warmers, but if you layer up too much., you’ll be sweltering by midday in the pleasant spring sun. Spring Fashion Essentials
With this in mind, you may need to make some purchases for spring specifically. We all have summer and winter clothes, but few of us have spring and autumn items. So, to help you wander through the months of March to June comfortable and in style, we’ve put together a list of spring fashion essentials to help you get prepared for the impending new season.
The first staple of spring is to buy a lightweight jacket. Spring is often too warm for a coat and too cold for no coverage at all, so a light jacket is the perfect balance. There are so many types of light jackets to choose from, including denim, corduroy, linen, and cotton. You can even go for leather if that’s more your style.
Light Blue Jeans
Spring is all about new life and new beginnings. Flowers begin to grow and trees are once again adorned by leaves. The sun shines in the sky and clouds move to reveal beautiful blue skies. Replicate the bright and airy spring atmosphere by investing in a pair of light blue jeans. Whether you opt for skinny, cropped, ripped, boyfriend, wide-leg, flare, or mom jeans, as long as they’re light blue, you will look brighter and feel bouncier in an instant.
What’s more, light blue jeans will go with anything, including both neutral and bright colors.
Short tea dresses are for summer, but midi dresses are the perfect way to ease into spring. Midi dresses come midway down the calf, so paired with some ankle boots and a lightweight jacket, you’ll be suitably warm and effortlessly stylish. There are many types of midi dresses, including long sleeve, bodycon, pleated, ribbed, and tailored. Whatever your preference, make sure you have a midi dress in your wardrobe ready for spring.
It’s not just clothes that may need an overhaul in spring. With temperatures not quite at their max, open-toe sandals aren’t on the cards at this time of the year. In contrast, over-the-knee boots might be a bit too much and leave you feeling uncomfortably warm. Ankle boots provide a happy medium, but it’s loafers and mules that really shine in spring.
Whether you’re wearing a dress,stylish denim jeans, smart trousers, or a skirt, loafers and mules go with everything. They provide enough coverage to keep your feet warm (and dry in case it rains), but they’re not chunky or overbearing like big boots.
Natural Material Accessories
Accessories change from season to season, and spring is no exception. For example, in summer it’s common to take sunglasses and a floppy hat wherever you go. In winter, a wooly hat, scarf, and gloves are common place In autumn, you might decide to switch to a thinner scarf and a beret, but where does that leave spring? Natural materials!
As mentioned, spring is all about new life sprouting, and there’s no better way to replicate this and ease yourself into the goodness of summer than with things like woven bags and leather bracelets. They will add texture to your outfit and look less chunky than your winter accessories, making them perfect for the turn of the winter/spring seasons.
