Be more colorful. During the colder months, neutral (and usually darker) colors are worn most. To pep up for spring, you can never go wrong by adding more color to your wardrobe. Top Shop is a great place to go for this. Styles can be found here that are both retro and modern, leaving shoppers with many types of fun colors and pieces to choose from. There are more benefits to adding colors than some may realize. Along with the visual interest, certain colors have been shown to enhance moods. Depending on the effect that is desired, colors can make a bold statement, create a slimmer physique and enhance eye color.

Wear layers. In a perfect world, spring would only consist of a perfect balance of weather that is not too hot or cold. However, this isn’t always the case. Some days are colder than others while other days are much hotter than expected. Along with checking the weather before heading out for the day, it’s a good idea to layer interesting pieces together. If it gets too cold, it’s easy to bundle up and when it is very warm, just remove a piece or two. If you don’t have the right pieces to layer together and wear as separates, Buffalo Exchange is a trendy and affordable shopping destination to find unique things to wear that are new or worn, with a vintage appeal.

Incorporate select fall or winter pieces into your spring wardrobe. There are many items worn during the winter that can transition into the next season. Among these items are neutral tops and pants. By pairing them with spring wear, a complete look can be made. This is another affordable way to create an outfit and can be a fun style challenge, as it causes a fashionista to be creative and shop in her own closet. Creating a look this way can sometimes be a challenge, so asking for a more knowledgeable opinion is always a good idea. J. Crew is a well-known name in fashion and it’s a good place to stop in for wardrobe inspiration or to speak with some of the fashionable staff to get valuable advice.

Go for lighter fabrics. Put away the heavier winter wear and go for more flowy materials. Flowy dresses and shirts can still be paired with leggings, light jackets and boots. It’s always fun when dressing this way to add in some unexpected pops of color for creative effect. For fashion lovers, floral prints are among the most coveted when shopping for more lightweight pieces. To find prints and fabrics of all types, one of the most diverse places to shop is the Fashion Show Mall. Fashion Show Mall is known for having the best of stores and it also boasts weekly runway shows. These elements have led to Fashion Show Mall being visited by fashion enthusiasts from all over the world.

Don’t forget your accessories. Accessories can make or break an outfit, so they should never be neglected. Necklaces, headbands, a bright handbag or clutch and pretty earrings can show off unique style. Some like to sport minimal accessories while others like to mix and match as many pieces as they can and add them to one look. Visit the Premium Outlets for wonderfully priced accessories made available to those who want novelty jewelry, fine jewelry, discounted designer handbags and other fun accessories.
