It’s basically spring and while flowers may not be in full bloom just yet, you are already itching to slip into that flawless dress you have saved for warmer times. You know the dress – that Spring/Summer collection one you bought even though you knew it was still way too early in the season to wear it. Or maybe it was the one you found at that insane sale you went to where cruel fate led you to your dream chiffon while the temperature outside was still uncooperative. Either way, we have some great news for you: you CAN wear that dress, TODAY! And it isn’t because you are in a time warp and have been miraculously fast-forwarded into May, but because you have a handy guide to making your spring wear weather-appropriate.
Furry and fuzzy, real or faux, it’s up to you. That long and shaggy vest will sit perfectly atop a maxi or a mini for a smooth transition into your boho look. Make it daytime friendly with lighter coloured neutrals and fluffy long strands.
Sweater on Top
Provided your dress is not of the empire waist variety, why not give it the appearance of a skirt? Go for a prim and proper vintage look with narrower fitted jumpers, or opt for a chunky knit if you need extra insulation from the spring chills.
The lure of leather is near impossible to resist. It has just the right measure of borrowed from the boys that will add the right dose of interesting to your girly spring frock. Added bonus: it will keep you sheltered from those unpredictable spring gusts.
Turtle Wins the Race
Get into that retro vibe and grab your ribbed turtle neck under that shift dress you have been meaning to wear. Not only will you keep your neckline protected from the last of the cold, but also it will give you a chance to try out that bob you have always wanted by tucking in those extra-long hair strands!
Take a simple feminine form dress and layer it with an oversized cardigan for a comfy and cozy fashion statement. Make the look more current and sidestep the potential frump factor by pairing it with some killer heels.
Shirt’s Got Real
That strapless dress that just looks awkward with a jacket is calling for a shirt combo! Crisp, collared and white is guaranteed to go with any structured strapless you have. Add a statement necklace to decorate your neckline and go from boring to memorable.
