Spring has officially sprung and let’s just say, not a moment too soon! As we bid adieu to the dreary days of winter, it’s time to shed some layers and welcome in a style refresh. To ensure your new style additions deliver the update you’re looking for - here’s a few tips to keep in mind before you ‘add to cart’ this season:
Style tip 1: Say hello to spring’s hottest hues
We love an all black wardrobe as much as the next girl, but this season, it’s time to broaden the style horizons with some new hues. The thought of mixing in color can be intimidating, but after seeing InStyle’s list of The Top Spring Color Trends to Wear for 2023, consider us believers. From Robin's Egg Blue, to Lavender, to Pastel Pink, this season’s softer tones provide a simple way to breathe some life into your day-to-day looks.
Once the pastels have earned a spot in your rotation, you may consider graduating into a deeper tone, like Teal or a more unconventional blue. If you’re a seasoned pro at balancing color in your wardrobe, you’ll want to dive right into the bolder choices of the season like Blood Orange and Acid Lime.
Where your jewelry fits in: No matter what part of the color spectrum you’re ready to play in, make sure you’re accenting your style with the perfect flare of sparkle. If you’re going bold with some of the brighter tones like those on PopSugar’s 6 Spring 2023 Color Trends to Have on Your Radar list, we recommend pairing your outfit with Billie & Bird’s most electric new piece: The Harley.
Style tip 2: Take casual up a notch
While color is certainly in this season, that doesn't mean you have to say goodbye to a casual style approach. Vogue really cracked the code on how to balance this season’s trends with everyday comfort in Ahead of Spring, 8 Styling Tips and Tricks to Rely On All Season Long. The simplicity of pairing a bright tee with a baggy jean is the easiest way to nail every spring trend without sacrificing comfort. We personally can’t get enough of the mom jean era, so swapping a basic white tee for a cute teal cap-sleeve feels like an easy step to elevate any day-to-day attire. Another casual capsule item is the trusty day dress. Vogue gives us a great tip here as well to swap your sandals for a springtime loafer when donning a sundress. This simple switch maximizes style while maintaining all-day comfort.
Where your jewelry fits in: When thinking about your-day-to-day looks, don’t forget your neck and wrist candy. If you don’t have a staple chain in your rotation, now is the time to consider The Meghan and The Paperclip Chain Baggy jeans with a cute bright tee and simple chain compliments? Spring style has never been easier!
Style tip 3: Don’t ditch the sleeves yet
We know you’re excited to shed some layers (so are we), but a few trends this season have us pumping the brakes on going sleeveless. With the sunshine and warm breeze just starting to roll in, this transitional weather is the perfect opportunity to extend sleeves throughout the season. Vogue's list of style tips for spring has two recommendations for leveraging sleeves all season long. The first is to layer a “Structured Black Coat With a Trendy Tank,” the second is to mix “The Neutral Blazer With a Pattern Shirt.” Sleeves are also making a splash in Cosmopolitan’s 29 Cute Spring Outfits for 2023. From the “Standout Shirtdress” to the “Long Sleeve Mesh Bodycon Dress,” this list is flooded with options for sleeved style.
Where your jewelry fits in: When looking at a blazer or coat to uplevel your look, I recommend relying on a great earring for the perfect finishing touch. If you go with Vogue’s recommendation to pull in a patterned shirt, keep your ear bling simple with something like Billie & Bird’s Gold Huggie Earrings. If you’re rocking a long sleeve dress in a solid color, dial up the sparkle with the Mini Gold Sun Hoops.
