Spring Weekend Style

Time to shed those heavy winter clothes and slip into something more comfortable. Welcome the warmer weather with comfy layers and versatile accessories.

Spring fashion should be all about taking advantage of the warmer weather. It has probably felt like ages that you’ve had to lug around your winter coat, scarf, gloves and hat but now that spring is here we can finally shed all of those heavy layers! Though spring can still have it’s fair share of uncertain weather, it is still considerably warmer than winter and that is enough to brighten anyone’s mood. Now that the weather is becoming more comfortable, your weekend wardrobe can look to head in the same direction.

Bohemian styles are hot this season. They’re everywhere from long flowy skirts, maxi dresses, drapey kimonos and cardigans and comfy peasant tops. These items are great for the spring because they provide coverage for cooler days but allow a breezy feel on warmer days. They are also perfect for layering. This look is all about texture and comfort and is perfect for spring. Bohemian or not, basics are probably the perfect items to layer. Basic v-neck tees, camisoles, cardigans, you name it. When it comes to the unpredictable and indecisive weather of spring, it’s always a good idea to dress in layers if you’re unsure about what the day might bring. The morning may be chilly or even cold, but come noon to four it may feel almost sweltering. But you’ll notice that once the sun begins to go down again, it will start feeling a lot like it did that morning. Light layers like tees and cardigans are great for weather like this. Light layers also allow you to play around with colors, patterns and textures, creating new and interesting looks with each and every combination. Layering allows you to experiment with your look and create endless ensembles that are sure to last you well throughout the spring season.

Along with the bohemian style comes the influx of bohemian baubles, meaning any variety of rings, statement necklaces and bracelets. Now that your arms are free from coats and sweaters, feel free to wear jangly jewelry again like bangles or thick cuff bracelets. Statement necklaces are also great for weekend wear and can dress up any casual, comfy outfit that suits your fancy. Comfy chic is totally in so take advantage of this weekend look and feel free to mix and match. All of these accessories work well with layered outfits, whether they are composed of basics or otherwise. Feel free to mix and match just about everything. Since a typical spring day will have you adding and losing layers throughout the day, you’ll have plenty of looks to keep up with the constant outfit changes.

Everyday Cardigan

Cardigans are indispensable items to any girl’s wardrobe. Keep a few on hand at all times to match any occasion, no matter what the weather is.

Even though spring is here, it does not mean that the cold is gone completely. Layering is just as vital and as fashionable now as it is in the winter time. When the weather is unpredictable and constantly indecisive, shifting from rain to shine or giving us cool mornings and chilly nights with moments of warmth in between, layering definitely comes in handy. And while you may associate sweaters with the bitter chill of winter, they are just as useful (and just as cute) in the spring. A loose cardigan is an indispensable spring item and it is something everyone should make sure to have in their wardrobe.

Cardigans can be worn as an accessory or as a main feature of an outfit. They can be worn with dresses, with a tee and jeans, skirts, and even as a makeshift jacket over a pair of shorts and more summery outfits. Their power really comes from their ability to layer. When the weather is chillier, it is best to wear them with skinny jeans and boots. But they can also be worn when the weather is warmer as well. A cardigan over a spring dress can still be open and breezy in the sun but will protect you from the chill of the wind or in the shade. These handy accessories can also work just as great as a light jacket on cooler summer nights.

Cardigans are one of those wardrobe staples that come in handy when you have a few of them. It’s always handy to have a neutral color to match a majority of your outfits, but it’s just as useful to have some in varying colors. A statement color or print can do a lot to add oomph to a basic outfit if you’re dressing on the run or want to add some flare to an old outfit. Not only that, but they can be used to match any look, whether you’re going for romantic, daring, rocker chic, bohemian and can even extend to the general casual and professional looks. Their versatility is limitless. Wear them simply draped over your outfit, cinch it with a waist belt, layer it with a scarf, or button it up for a more preppy or professional look. These cozy items are perfect for mixing and matching and can do a lot to extend your wardrobe. Be sure you have a few that match your personal style as well as accentuate it.
