April can be a temperamental month but that doesn’t mean you can’t look fabulous. Be sure you’re ready for anything and still look chic.
April weather can be a bit unpredictable. Even though the temperatures are finally warming up, we can often be bogged with sporadic rain showers and the temps can still vary from the 40’s to the 60’s and even 70’s. The trick to April fashion is being prepared for any weather and still looking great.
The weather this time of year can call on practically any outfit you have ready in your closet. One day can have you feeling like it’s winter again and another can force you to bust out your summer clothes. The best thing to do to counter this is to layer. Layering will ensure that you are prepared for any weather as well as any random or unexpected weather changes. The best items to use are light clothing, like a loose cardigan, that when combined can create warm, cozy combinations that aren’t too warm, and can be easily removed if you need to cool off and breathe a little. The fun thing about layering is that you are basically wearing several outfits in one, which can definitely come in handy if something comes up or if the weather spoils an item or two with a random rain shower.
While it can rain any time of the year, the spring and late fall are when it’s at its worst so it’s best to keep ready. Wear shoes that are naturally water resistant or be sure to carry a spare in your bag if you’re unsure of the weather. Shoes with fabric made of suede or fragile canvas materials can easily become ruined when wet so it may be best to keep the suede for autumn and winter and hold onto some canvas shoes until summer, unless they are the kind that can be easily washed. Leather, patent leather or even pleather are all great materials to use in rainy weather and can be made extra resistant with a water sealant spray. If you still feel like rocking your favorite shoes that happen to be more sensitive to moisture, then be sure to be one of those people who carries an extra pair or shoe covers on hand.
Regardless of playing it safe, feel free to break out those bright pastel colors to welcome the spring. Regardless of what the forecast is, these colors will brighten your mood and pump you up for the warmer temps to come. Let your outfit match the excitement of the season by incorporating lighter shades and tones into your look.

With Spring comes a wealth of opportunity. Take advantage of the season by updating your wardrobe and your accessories.
Spring months bring a brightness not just to the weather outside but to our wardrobes as well. The dreary nature of winter is on its way out so the brighter, more colorful world can emerge again. The same goes for fashion. Often winter fashion and accessories consist of metallics, neutrals, jewel-tones and heavy materials. While all of this is appropriate for the weather it’s worn in, it does not match the demeanor that is associated with the spring. Try and jump into spring with some seasonally appropriate handbags.
Color is a major thing you can play with when it comes to bags. While neutrals are perfectly appropriate all year round, pastels and bold, bright colors come out to play once the weather gets warmer. Blacks and grays are still appropriate, but lighter neutrals tend to take the accessory stage come spring and summer. Light beiges, creams and stark whites take over and make way for brighter wardrobe options. If you want to add some color, than by all means choose a bag in a pastel, either blue, green, pink, yellow, whatever suits your liking. Pastels are still understated but have just as much capacity to add color and flare to an ensemble. The pantone color of 2014 is radiant orchid, a light yet bold purple with violet undertones. This makes for a great handbag, and is equally a great way to incorporate a trendy new color to your wardrobe.
Spring also brings with it a new array of bag styles and materials to play around with and mix and match. Wicker or basket weave becomes much more popular as the weather gets warmer, evoking that popular tropical or beach feel. Lighter toned canvas bags, canvas backpacks or cross bodies are also more commonplace, especially those that boast a perfectly springy floral print. Larger bags also become more appropriate once the weather doesn’t bog us down with any number of coats and scarves. Large, over-sized totes are more suited to the spring time and warmer months when we are not burdened with extra layers, and can even carry a light sweater or a scarf if the necessity arises, allowing you to bring any number of other necessities along with you on a day about town.
Make use of these lighter, brighter colors and patterns, as well as more lightweight materials. Have fun and use these spring bag ideas to brighten up your wardrobe.
