STYLE ADVICE: Dealing With Tricky Spring Weather

Spring is upon us! It’s so exciting to finally be in warm weather. With the upcoming sunshine comes the upcoming fashion, which, let’s be honest, is really what I am excited about. Hello, spring fashion week anyone? There are some killer trends this season—off-the-shoulder tops are huge again (honestly, such a relief because I went a little nuts buying them this past year), as well as bell sleeves, flare jeans, gingham, and, of course, florals! I’m still searching for a perfect pair of flare jeans that do not drag on the ground from my 5 foot 4 inch frame. However, fun fashion aside, April showers bring May flowers, so it is important to be prepared for every possible circumstance.

I know I have stated this before, but the trick is to dress in layers but mix them in with some warm weather essentials. This Fashionista rang in the new season with her fun navy and gold sandals. This outfit is obviously very navy heavy, which is always okay! Navy is one of those colors that is always in style. I can hear my mother laughing at me as I write this. She is the queen of navy blue. Anyway, I digress. Jack Rogers are perfect with simple cuffed jeans. Cuffed jeans, to me, scream spring. Funny how doing something so simple to a pair of pants can symbolize so much.

This Fashionista kept her look simple on top with a classic white tank top and long navy cardigan. This is where those layers come in! If it gets too hot, you can tie your cardigan around your waist or even shoulders for a very J.Crew-esque look. She matched her silver bracelets to her necklaces for some extra bling and also expertly contrasted the gold in her sandals. Metallics are also a huge trend for spring, so feel free to mix it up with metals! As long as it is kept subtle, mixing metals is very chic and fashion forward.
