What to Wear: Spring is Here!
Michigan’s long-awaited spring is finally here. The coming weeks may still be a little chilly, but take a look at some inspiration for spring looks that will help you bear the anticipation for warmer weather.
Patterns and Prints: Fun prints are a key ingredient to any spring look. The trick with mixing prints is to select pieces that fall within the same color palette. A simple dress for spring is a classic favorite, and if it’s a little windy, pair with a lightweight scarf. I love tying the hair up into a high ponytail or a messy bun too keep the scarf from looking too bulky. Complete the look with some ankle boots for those rainy days.
Vintage Crochet: Lace or crochet is a popular choice for spring. I love the vintage feel this light pink top has. High-waisted jeans are ultra flattering, and tend to add some personality to the outfit. If you want to try something new, opt for a pair of ankle-cropped jeans, which will draw attention to your footwear. You can never go wrong with those classic Converse. Style the look with your hair parted down the middle to create a 70s vibe, which is a burgeoning trend at the moment.
Gingham Grunge: If crochet and flirty dresses are not your thing, gingham is always a great alternative option. It’s a trendy spring print and gives the outfit an edgy twist. These gingham pants work perfectly with a cropped blouse, and the chain necklace finishes off the grungy yet put-together feel.
There are so many possibilities for spring, and everyone has their own take on it. Now that the weather is taking a turn for the warmer, have fun with your outfits while trying out some of the season’s latest trends.
