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.
