Tights, Tights, & More Tights
Sundresses may get all the attention, but we think tights are the ultimate springtime staple. Comfy and versatile, tights help you transition out of winter wares and into those summer pieces you can’t resist wearing for one more day. Pop some tights on under your favorite fluttery dress (or overalls, like Shannon’s wearing), buckle on some closed-toed shoes, and you’ve got an ensemble that satisfies your spring fever and accommodates the unpredictable little cold snaps that come with any spring day. Plus, with so many colors and patterns, tights are an easy way to infuse instant personality into any look!
Brighten Things Up
The sun’s out. Flowers are beginning to bud. The blue sky is coming back. Spring is when the world’s palette comes out to play — shouldn’t you join the fun? Try focusing on one piece of your outfit at a time, and swap muted shades out for something bolder. For instance, maybe you’ll switch your go-to burgundy top out for something in a snazzy citrus hue. Maybe you’ll like it so much, you’ll want to add in even more! Look for pieces that incorporate color in unexpected ways — embellishments in shoes, patterns in jackets, or even stitching on jeans.
All That Flutters
When searching for spring styles, focus on fabrics. Trade heavy knits for cotton blends, linens, and other lightweight materials, which look and feel fluttery and fresh. Such dreamy, breathable styles will help you keep your cool well into summer. And because they’re so luxuriously light, they’re perfect for layering. Top a breezy frock with a cardigan or wear it over a chambray blouse, and you’ll be feeling stylish, not stuffy.
