As the winter months draw to a close, you can start looking forward to spring and summer. Spring is a time for hope and positivity, and you’ll want your wardrobe to reflect that. Here are some tops tips on how to dress well in spring.
Layer Your Clothes
The weather in spring is always changeable. It can be beautifully sunny one minute and pouring with rain the next, so it’s a good idea to wear lots of layers.
Wear a thin sweater or cardigan over a t-shirt, and wear a light jacket over that. If you’re too hot, you can easily take off a layer and carry it in your bag or tie it around your waist. If you’re too cold, it’s a good idea to have extra layers with you; pack a warm scarf or a thicker pair of socks in your backpack whenever you leave the house.
By layering up your clothes, you can feel prepared for every outcome.
Get Contact Lenses
If you’re a glasses wearer, you probably don’t notice the inconvenience of glasses until the sun starts to shine and you realize you can’t wear sunglasses without sacrificing your eyesight!
If this problem sounds familiar to you, this spring, why not try wearing contact lenses? Contacts are super practical as they can allow you to wear your favorite sunglasses or even practice outdoor sports without your glasses getting in the way.
You may have tried contacts before and failed to get used to them, but there have been great developments in contact lens technology, and contacts now exist for a wider variety of vision problems. Take a look at Stoney Creek Eye Care’s guide to contact lenses for astigmatism, for example.
Florals for Spring? Groundbreaking
When the first sunny day arrives, it can be tempting to wear a floral print. If you do this day in, day out, however, you may feel that your wardrobe is a little lackluster. Floral prints are slightly obvious, after all.
Mix up your spring style by trying monochrome outfits instead: Wear clothes of all one color (it doesn’t have to be black or white!) and see how you like the look.
Alternatively, why not try a bold look with clashing prints? If you shake up your style regularly, you’ll keep things fresh and youthful through the whole season.
Swap Out Dark Colors for Light
In the dark winter months, dark colors seem more appropriate, but you should feel free to opt for a lighter palette when spring arrives.
Swap out dark blue or black jeans for pastel-colored or white denim. Just be prepared to wash your clothes more often, as stains are hard to hide on white jeans!
The accessories you choose to wear in spring should also reflect the changing seasons. If it’s sunny, why not wear sandals or open-toed shoes instead of wintery boots? If it’s raining, you could wear a brightly colored raincoat to bring a touch of spring sunshine to your outfit.
There are so many options for a spring wardrobe, and you shouldn’t be limited by the “rules” of fashion. It’s a great opportunity to mix up your style, so experiment and have fun!
