Nothing says spring like open-toed footwear and bright colors. Layering in the springtime is a great way to stay comfortable and keep your outfit ready for any weather changes. While you can layer different apparel to stay warm, you can also layer different textures, patterns and pieces. Your personal style plays a key role in every outfit, from your hairstyle to your nail color.

This Fashionista has many different elements that all come together for a unique and spring-ready outfit. Her velvet leggings add a fun texture with their soft shimmer and are light enough for the warmer weather. Her long cardigan has an intricate tribal pattern adding to her outfit’s black and white color scheme. Her plain white T-shirt is a simple layering piece that remains weather appropriate if she decides it’s warm enough to leave the cardigan behind.

She accessorizes with a long statement necklace that catches the sun in its glass center. Her platform sandals are a warm weather necessity as they keep her feet cool and fashionable. The finishing touch to her outfit is bold spring nails. She has incorporated flowers, a fun bright blue and some glittery polish that show off different colors in the sunlight. She also has tiny clear rhinestones that could certainly represent raindrops, pulling together this spring look in rainy April.

How To: Pair a casual outfit with a bold, patterned cardigan, platform sandals or a bright, spring nail color to make any outfit pop for spring.
