As the flowers begin to bloom and winter turns into spring, it is time to consider springtime fashion. Spring is a great time to feature different items into one’s wardrobe including bright colors and floral patterns. Here’s the full scoop on all things spring fashion!
After a long winter full of dark and neutral colors, spring is an inviting time to add a pop of color to one’s outfits. Fresh colors like yellows, blues, pinks, purples, and oranges are a must have during the season! Including floral patterns into one’s outfit is also essential.
Senior Emmie Barnett commented, “Floral patterns are a major thing and flowy fabrics.”
One can incorporate floral articles by wearing anything with a flowery touch: blouses, skirts, button ups, jeans, skirts, shoes, or accessories. There is no such thing as too much floral, so go all out before spring is gone!
When it comes to outfits, one can finally put their heavy jackets and boots to the side. For ladies looking for dressy outfits, flowy blouses or tops paired with rolled up jeans or capris provides a cute look. Tops can also be put together with midi skirts or a pair of palazzo pants for another springtime option. Finish the outfit off with a matching pair of sandals and one’s outfit is complete!
On the casual side, a girl can never go wrong with a comfortable sweatshirt and her favorite pair of sweatpants or leggings for cooler days. A warmer day casual outfit may include a t-shirt and some running shorts. These outfits can easily be paired with tennis shoes or walking sandals.
For men considering a dressy outfit, button up shirts with jeans or khakis is an option with a nice pair of sneakers or dress shoes. On the flip side, a more casual day look might include a t-shirt and some jeans, sweatpants, or shorts.
When it comes to accessories, ladies can wear various articles. To add a finishing touch to any outfit, one can include items like necklaces, earrings, ascots, or headbands. Spring typically means more sunshine than in the winter, but several rainy days should be expected. For this reason, investing in a pair of rain boots and an umbrella is also a wise decision.
Furthermore, shopping is necessary to find new clothes for the season. High school students definitely do not have the budget to invest in a skirt from Gucci! Thankfully, there are tons of places that offer great springtime clothes, rather one is on a budget or not. Several places in town sell clothes at fair prices. One of these stores is Wal-Mart. This store has a ton of trendy spring clothes. In addition, thrift stores, like Goodwill and KARM, are great places to find gently used and recycled clothes at low prices. Barnett highlighted a few of her personal favorite places to shop at for spring clothes. These places include Free People, Altered State, Anthropolgie, and local boutiques. There are also several stores at the mall with plenty of springtime options as well.
All in all, spring is an exciting time to refresh one’s closet with fresh trends and outfits as an enlivening way to welcome in the new season.
