Spring comes, colors change and fashion trends change, year-to-year. Everyone isn’t fortunate enough to go out and buy a new spring wardrobe, but everyone wants an updated look for spring.
There are several things you can do to update your spring wardrobe without investing in a completely new spring wardrobe.
Add soft looks to work suits.
One of the most popular trends, according to Cosmopolitan Magazine, is adding soft elements to structured looks. You can’t wear a lingerie cami to the office, but you can soften the blouse look, color, and material that you wear with professional clothing.
A soft, cami with a little lace, or a silk shirt can turn a structured professional look into a fresh look for spring.
Grab a new spring look with a colorful scarf.
Find a vibrant, soft scarf to add to your current wardrobe pieces. Whether it is a work suit, pants suit, or casual outfit you can revitalize the look by adding a scarf. Tie the scarf loosely around your neck, or let it drape casually over your shoulders. An inexpensive scarf or other accessory can completely change the look of key pieces of your spring wardrobe.
Buy one new spring piece.
Purchase one or two new items of clothing for your spring wardrobe. Choose pieces in soft pastels that can be easily matched. Try not to get suckered into khaki and white neutrals. Other soft colors can be mixed and matched with ease to create a new look for your spring wardrobe.
Dress for spring, but don’t show too much skin.
It might surprise you coming from Cosmopolitan, but the top selling fashion magazine recommends showing only one “stretch of skin at a time.” If your outfit is leggy, then don’t battle for attention by wearing a sexy top. If you are accentuating your face, or other upper body features, don’t try to draw attention away to the legs. This spring wardrobe tip can be implemented without purchasing new items. Mix and match clothing that you already own, keeping in mind new spring wardrobe trends.
Accessorize with prudence.
Accessories are a cheap and easy way to update your spring wardrobe. However, Cosmo warns not to over accessories. If you have an outfit, such as a dress, which speaks for itself, don’t feel obligated to accessorize. Let a beautiful spring outfit make a statement about you.
Shoes, belts, and accessories no longer have to match.
You no longer have to search from store to store to match a belt or accessories to shoes. It is acceptable to match colors in your spring wardrobe, but color tones do not need to match. Softer shaded belts look nice with darker shoes in the same color family.
