Now that spring is finally appearing, you’ve probably put away all of those heavy sweaters, jackets, mittens, and gloves. The beautiful, warm weather and pleasant sunshine will have you dreaming of flowy skirts, light tops, and sandals. If you’re in the market for a new spring wardrobe, you’ll have a variety of trends, looks, and prints to choose from, all in choices that can transition from day to night in a snap, no matter if you live in the city or country.
There are a number of looks out there that almost any woman can pull off with a little expertise. This spring, look for bold prints, including florals, in a variety of bright colors, all in fabrics of natural origin. If you’ve ever traveled to the Hamptons, then you know this look is the epitome of style there. Here are five outfit ideas you can use, possibly with some pieces you already have in your closet, to create that sense of Hamptons style.
The White Dress
Nothing is more versatile or can show off a tan more than a beautiful white summer sundress. During the day, dress it down with flat sandals and simple jewelry or a straw hat. By night, add chunky gold jewelry and wedges to create a sleep, fun summer look. Don’t forget to bring a light sweater to cover up if the evening gets cool.
Casual Cropped Pants and Fitted Tee
Be casual, comfortable, and chic in this easy combination. Try a pair of brightly colored chinos rolled with metallic sandals and chunky jewelry to complete the look. Have fun with different patterns and graphics on your tee shirts, or try a fitted polo shirt in a bright color. This outfit is preppy and cool.
Spring Skirt and Tee
Pick a pretty and feminine skirt in a spring pastel shade and dress it down with a matching knit top. This combinations allows you to feel girly but isn’t stuffy or formal. To add to the cool factor, choose a pleated or full skirt. If you really want to show off, add a pair of platform shoes to this outfit. If you want to be more casual, pick flat footwear.
Skinnies and Stripes
Both skinny jeans and striped clothing have been in style for several seasons now, and show no signs of going out any time soon. If you haven’t tried these trends, now is the time. They go well together. Try a navy striped top with a pair of stretchy skinny jeans and some ballet flats. This look is perfect if you’re planning to go sailing for the day or just if you’re having lunch with the girls.
Pretty Party Dress
The spring and summer months are full of parties, weddings, and other celebrations. Be prepared for any event with a pretty, flirty party dress. Choose from florals, pastels, or stripes to create a look that’s on trend and fits well with the season. Don’t forget to add some sky high heels or platforms, as well as some coordinating jewelry to create the total package.
If you make sure your spring wardrobe contains each of these easy outfit combinations, you’ll be prepared for any type of event the season throws your way, whether you live in the Hamptons, the city, or the suburbs.
