Spring means that the sun is back and flowers are back in bloom. It is not just the trees and flowers that need to get ready for spring, we need to prepare our spring style also! The return of warmer weather brings a different style of dress, it is time to throw off the warm layers and bring on the sun protection. As a general style rule spring = the return of light pretty colors and light layers along with accessories to protect you from the warmer weather.
First things I always pull out for spring are big floppy sun hats, thin scarves and big shades. All these items not only make you look fabulous but also help protect delicate skin from the sun. Sun protection is always important but especially so after we have been hiding indoors all winter. Check out the gorgeous Gigi Burris Millinery ‘Tina’ Hat to give you some fabulous spring style. I love the less common color and unique lambskin ribbon. Go for a lightweight scarf in spring, like Love Quote’s Knotted Tassel Scarf. All those tassels will add some cute flare to your outfit. Spring and summers most important accessory is a pair of sweet shades. The Prada ‘Baroque’ 55mm Round Sunglasses are unique and absolutely breathtaking.
Pastels are the perfect spring colors. I am loving mint right now. It just seems like the perfect shade. The 3.1 Phillip Lim Mint Cloque Floating Peplum Top in Mint Green is just gorgeous. The color is amazing and the shape is super flattering. Another great option which is also incredibly wearable and convenient is the Balenciaga Classic City Bag in Rose. Big enough to fit everything you could possibly need including you scarf and sunglasses!
Speaking of spring colors, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention radiant orchid. It is the pantone color of the year for 2014, a beautiful purple shade with pink and fuchsia undertones. Though it is the color of the entire year, I feel like it works perfect for spring. The B Brian Atwood Priscilla Twist Strap Wedge Sandal in Purple is an awesome option. Not only do they come in a dreamy sueded texture but the wedge sandal is a must have for spring! If you want to try out radiant orchid in a small dose you can add it to your makeup arsenal. The LAURA MERCIER Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Orchid, a shimmering lavender color, looks lovely paired with any of your existing makeup colors.
As we know spring is time for flowers to bloom on trees and in field so why not on our fashion and accessories as well? Floral is fabulous for spring. I’ve seen many gorgeous options including this Dolce & Gabbana Floral-brocade Shoulder Bag. You can also go with just a bit of flower power on your feet. I love floral shoes, they offer just enough of a print and pop of color to liven up any outfit. You can’t go wrong with these Givenchy Floral-print Leather Pumps. Or take the flowers with you on spring vacation… slip into a bathing beauty with a floral print. Zimmerman’s Sundance Floral-print Triangle Bikini will make you the center of attention by any pool or ocean.
Which of our spring must haves do you like best? I really can’t decide myself, I love them all!
