Finally spring has arrived, my favorite season of the year. Though it may still be chilly outside, spring fashion is heating up. From futuristic and edgy, to romantic and flowy, here’s a glimpse of the hottest trends of the season.
Tip #1: Yes To Light, Forget The Dark
Nobody wants to see you in dark and dreary clothing at the start of Spring! Put away your blacks and dark blues, and take out your whites, reds, pinks, and yellows.Be careful with this one as some complexions are not cut out for stark white. If you are nearing middle age, try using white in your accessories instead of brilliant white jackets or skirts. Everyone should be cautious about what we call Minnie Mouse shoes and please don't break out the white pants, skirts and shoes until after Memorial Day. I don't care what anyone says. Some rules are not meant to be broken.
Tip #2: Put away Those Pants and Go For Skirts and Dresses
You don't have to wear boring jeans every day. Instead, buy some colorful skirts and dresses to brighten your Spring Wardrobe. If you hate wearing anything you can't run around in, find some colorful slacks that look nice.
Tip #3: Show Your Happy Feet
Spring is the time to show your toes. Get yourself a pedicure and then go somewhere affordable like Target or Nordstrom's Rack to look for great shoe deals. Buy a nice array of heels and flats in a variety of colors and styles. Remember, don't buy a pair of shoes just because they are pretty, buy a pair of shoes because they fit nicely and are comfortable enough to walk in.
Tip #4: Blouses are back
After years of being out of the spotlight, blouses are at the front of the fashion parade this spring. Try anything ultra-feminine such as lace, sheer or linen. The best way to update your suit for the office is to add a ruffled blouse for high impact.
Tip #5: Accessories On The Go
Chunky necklaces are still in this season as well. Look also for shell pendants, necklaces, earrings and bangle bracelets in both soft shades of natural white and pink and vibrant tones of green, yellow and turquoise. Wood jewelry in deep, dark brown accented with gold metal for a clean, modern look will add drama to summer brights.
Remember no matter what styles you choose, you should always make sure you have other pieces (we recommend three) already in your wardrobe with which to coordinate. Also, be cognizant of the styles and how they look on someone of your age. Always be aware of shape and color and how it relates to your body. Just because they make it in your size does not mean you should wear it. Now enjoy the spring weather and flowers and have fun accessorizing your wardrobe.
