I used to always think of spring colors as pastels mostly. Or light and bright colors in pink, blue, green, yellow, purple. But this year I have been seeing so many looks that screamed spring and they aren't in the traditional colors. So I started thinking about my choices for spring colors this season.
For instance this spring I have worn camo, dark yellows, and now the look in this post with army green. I think it is fun to take these non-traditional colors and give them a spring twist. I do that by adding floral, checks, bows and more. In my outfit today I knew I wanted to wear these pants. Alone they are not very spring-like except that they are cropped which I consider a spring trend. So I added this light weight floral top. The floral design and the sheer fabric say spring to me. Then to really give it that spring look I add mules with big bows! My orange bag was my choice for this look. The chain strap reminds me of spring as apposed to heavier leather straps.
So to recap. To add spring to my style without necessarily using tradition spring colors.
- cropped pants
- floral, checked or striped prints
- light weight or sheer fabric
- smaller bags with chain strapes
- and blows or embellishments on your shoes
- mules, peep toe, or sandals
