Winter is just about over for most of us and it's time again to go through our closets to see what we can still wear for Spring and what items need to be added to give our wardrobes a Spring makeover. Guest Blogger Nan from EatBreatheBlogis here to share 7 Ways to Add Glamour to Your Spring Wardrobe so you can get ready for that fun day in the sun....
If the bulky sweaters and puffy coats in your winter wardrobe are making you feel like a kid bundled up to the teeth, or even a human burrito, – cheer up, little snow bunny: Spring is coming! And, along with the cute fluffy chicks and lovely spring blossoms, comes the best part of the year -- shopping-wise, anyway -- the perfect excuse to fill your closet with new, exciting, non-bulky, non-winter clothes! Best of all, even if the snow is still falling and you’re stuck inside, unwilling to risk your neck in the icy streets even for the promise of a pair of new stilettos or a sparkly new necklace, you can always start your shopping spree online! So, you may ask, how shall I embark on this epic shopping adventure? Check out these top 7 ways to glam up your wardrobe:
Nothing chases away the winter blues quite like jewelry – and nothing adds instant glamour to an outfit like that perfect piece of bling. One of the best ways to find the hottest new looks is online. While you wait for winter’s bitter winds to finally chill out, shop an online retailer like Blue Nile; this fun site allows you to browse incredible selections of jewelery without having to leave your laptop!
Ah, the strappy sandal -- the one item of clothing that instantly makes it feel like spring. Sandals in this year’s bold colorslook especially fresh. Just make sure to get a pedicure first; after all, your little piggies have been cooped up for a few months!
Incorporate this spring’s metallic trend into your wardrobe -- not by going robotic -- but with a metallic clutch. These shiny bags come in a range of tones, from pale platinum to deep silver, bright gold to rich bronze.
Sunglasses used to be purely functional – you know, protecting your precious eyes from the sun’s deadly rays and all that – but this year, the styles of sunglasses are more -- original -- than ever. On the spring runways, designers from Rochas to Prada sported multiple colors and strange shapes to create a rainbow of fresh new looks.
Bright colors dominated the spring runways on bags, shoes, shifts and even denim. Among the hottest spring looks: floral denim. These brightly patterned pants and shorts are perfect for spring, but you can also wear them right now topped with boots and a cute jacket.
In an ironic twist, a color straight from the depths of darkest winter has been dominating celebs’ nails just in time for spring. Black nails are no longer strictly for teens suffering from hopeless cases of ennui, celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Amy Brennemen have been sporting inky tips.
Athletic looks flooded the spring runways, with designers from Michael Kors to Helmut Lang apparently taking inspiration from the Olympics. This look is easy to incorporate with a cute backpack. No, not your trusty gym bag; this year’s models are crafted from leather and are suitable for city wear. Among the best: Backpacks with a vintage, worn-in look, or urban-chic models with edgy, sleek style.
So crawl on out of hibernation and hop on your laptop! It’s time to get shopping – after all, spring is just around the corner.
