How to Dress for Spring: 5 Fashion Ideas for Spring Outfits
No matter where you live, there are many reliable ways to style your outfits for spring weather.
Mix up the floral dress
When everything seems to be in bloom, it's natural to choose floral prints. Instead of the standard spring dress, switch things up by choosing a matching floral crop top and skirt, or mix two different floral prints. Toughen up a floral look by pairing it with a denim jacket (or leather jacket) and athletic sneakers or combat boots. Or, go for a boho look with a button-down floral maxi dress belted at the waist and paired with cowboy boots or suede booties.
Try a long-sleeved spring dress.
Dresses are the epitome of spring style. So what should you do if the warm weather hasn't quite hit your region? If it's too cold for a sleeveless minidress, try a long-sleeved midi dress. Or, throw your favorite strappy sundress over a white tee or turtleneck and leggings.
Pair blazers with flowy skirts at the office.
When warmer weather hits, make a midi skirt office-appropriate by pairing it with a plaid or houndstooth blazer. A belt adds polish to the look. Not into skirts? Try a lightweight jumpsuit. Loafers or flats with no-show socks are ideal office footwear options.
Ditch the skinny jeans
Straight-leg white jeans and denim shorts are both great looks for spring. Skinny jeans? Not so much. Opt instead for a wide-leg or straight-leg cut to increase air circulation.
Show off your socks
Long deemed a fashion no-no, socks with sandals is a fun fashion trend to try with casual outfits. Choose socks in bright colors and pair them with chunky sandals for maximum impact. Not ready for that trend? Show off your cute socks with your white sneakers. If you want to try a patterned sock, polka dots are a great place to start.
