Ready for spring? As you get out of your wool turtlenecks and warm gloves, watching spring roll in may give you a moment of panic. What do you wear when you come out of hibernation? Here are a few fashion pairings that can ease you into the spring/summer season in style!

1. Crinkled scarves and sleeveless summer dresses

Pull out a favorite summer dress from last year and team it with a crinkled scarf in linen, cotton, or silk. Find a color that the dress and scarf have in common. Get extra fashion points if you’re mixing prints!

2. Maxi dresses and roomy totes

With Farmer’s Markets up and rolling again, wear a maxi dress and carry a roomy tote big enough to stash lettuce, carrots, and green cabbage.

3. Oversized sunglasses and stacks of bangles

Nothing says spring more than an oversized pair of sunglasses. Balance the scale of the frames with a stack of bangles on your wrist.

4. Skinny rolled up jeans and flowy tunics

Try a lighter shade of blue denim skinnies with a floral sheer flowy tunic and a camisole underneath.

5. Unique hem jeans and strappy sandals

Dive into one of the unique hemmed jean styles and add those oh-so-cool strappy flat sandals. The jeans will grab attention so make sure those sandals are just right.

6. Vibrant neons and subtle neutrals

You’ll see this in the magazines: blush pink with hot orange, smoky gray with bright turquoise, sand with acid-green. Try it yourself! Look at T-shirts, pants, and lightweight jackets and create a color combo like this. It’s very modern. Consider a handbag in a vibrant neon shade and wear it against white, sand, or soft gray pants.

7. Blue jeans and bright red lips

These two items are standalone classics. They look great together and will give you a way to leap into spring in a flash.

8. Long layered tee under a short, cropped jacket

This is a perfect combo for breezy spring evenings. You may still need long sleeves to keep comfortable but if a heat wave shows up, trade the long sleeves out for a sleeveless tee.

9. Up-dos and large earrings

Is it hot enough to get your hair up and off your neck? Bring on the big hoops or chandelier earrings. No one will be able to take their eyes off of you!

10. White pumps

If they don’t remind you of the shoes you wore as a child, you may want to try the new neutral…the white shoe. Whether you go for a pump, a mule, or simple sandal, it may add a bit of interest to your spring and summer attire.
