It’s mid-April and this means – either you have your entire wardrobe ready for the warm months ahead or you still need to put away your coats and fall boots. Don’t worry, I’m on the latter end too. If you don’t have the time or resources to ‘spring’ for a new spring wardrobe, don’t fret, because here are five simple tips that will help you make the perfect spring outfit. You might have some of these items in your closet already. But if not, all you need to do is invest in one staple piece. Like I did with this fuchsia skirt.

1. Add Stripes

Nothing reminds me more that spring has sprung than stripes. It’s the classic spring look, and this season it’s especially popular. You can wear stripes in a variety of ways and they’re available in an endless amount of colors, fabrics, and garments. If you have a striped top in your closet consider wearing it with shorts, a skirt, under a blazer or to the beach. You can pretty much play with the options and see what works and looks best on you. One sure thing to avoid is wearing a top and bottom that have stripes in the same direction, unless it’s a jumper. This is because the stripes should line up, and most likely, if you’re wearing separate pieces they won’t.

2. Wear Brights

If you want to instantly add some spring spirit into your outfits, wear brights. Bright shoes, accessories, tops or bottoms. I particularly love bright pants, skirts, and shorts. Having bright bottoms brings such a fun spin to an outfit and really perks up your day.
 

3. Wear Open Toed Sandals

The weather is finally warm enough to let your toes see the light. Make an appointment to get a pedicure because you’re going to want to wear open toed shoes, like now!
 

4. Get a Bright Manicure

I know barely-there French manicures were all over the runway but I’ve always had a thing for bright nail polishes. When I get a manicure, I want my nails to stand out and for everyone to notice them, it’s spring after all. If you don’t want very bright hues, try pastels, like pale blue and dusty pink.
 

5. Let Your Hair Down

Give your hair a tousled effect, a loose and natural wave. It’s the ultimate spring “cool-girl” look, giving the impression: “I spend no time on my hair, I just wake up this way.”
 

Bonus – Nike Shorts

I’m guilty of not always having the proper under garments. You know, spanx. So what I usually do is wear my Nike compression shorts. They’re comfortable, tight enough and there is no underwear line.

You can try this tips individually or all together, like I did. I would love to know what you’re doing to get your outfits spring ready! Let me know in the comments!

Stay Stylish,

    Personally, I think SPANX do strange things to a woman’s shape. They create a square look that, to me, is as unappealing as lumps and bumps. I like a smooth line, but I have no wish to be shaped into anything other than my own ( hard earned) hour glass.
    I’ve cut the legs off of regular tights ( not control) to wear under more clinging dresses.
    I think the Nike shorts is a genius idea.

      Yay, glad to hear you thought this was a great idea! Big plus is that they are much more comfortable than spanx too!

    I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who considers wearing shorts under my skirts. It worked like a charm when I was 7 years old, and I think would still work today…especially on those windy days!

      I usually always try to wear shorts under my skirts especially if the skirts short or on a windy day.
