How fashion bloggers style spring
While March 21 marked the official start of spring, some of us are still waiting for spring to warm up. Interestingly, in climate sciences spring starts March 1. Anyhow, what really matters for us fashion and style lovers is when the weather is finely permitting us to wear our new wardrobe updates. Who hasn’t bought already the one or other super chic spring/summer trend to add to the wardrobe for the upcoming season? We associate springtime with new beginnings. To overhaul your closet for trend, fit and personal style is most likely on the top of your to-do list, if you haven’t done it yet.
For this post, some of my blogging friends and I collaborated under the lead of Suzanne Bell on bringing you more spring outfit ideas with the new trends, wearing old and new pieces, and the challenges of the changing weather pattern. Since we live in different climate zones, you will get the full breath of looks for chilly to wet to windy and nearly summer-like days in different styles.
Don’t let the right look be a random thing. Wear the right look in any dressing situation in midlife. Buy my book How to Dress for Success in Midlife.
Suzanne Bell of Ask Suzane Bell mixes boots with a linen skirt and denim trench coat. This combination allows here to look season appropriate without freezing her tail off.
Jessica Jamenga aka Jess
Jess of Elegantly Dressed and Stylish lives in North Carolina, the Lake Norman area. I featured her and the weather of her region a while ago in how to dress for humid subtropical climate. She welcomes the new season in a vibrant floral dress with floral circle bag, and shows how to mix patterns in a trendy way.
Nina Bandoni of Sharing a Journey lives in sunny Florida, i.e. in subtropical climate like Jess. She wears a baby pink trench coat, nude strappy sandals and a floral umbrella for protection from spring-showers. We collaborated recently to show you how styling spring work outfits in the North vs. South or vice versa differs.
Nancy of Nancy’s Fashion Style lives in the Netherlands. At this time in the year, this means weather-wise cool winds from the North Sea as the ocean warms slower than the land. This situation leads to blue skies with fluffy white clouds that sometimes bring showers. They seam to be aligned like pearls on a necklace. The distance from one cloud string to the other depends on the wind shear. Given the windy shower-prone condition layering is needed to be able to adjust to stay comfortable. The light may be bright. Nancy Baten tackles the challenge in an orange knit top, cropped jacket and floral skirt. Sunnies keep her eyes safe, and sandals can take a shower. Afterwards the wind just blow dries the feet.
Emma Peach of Style Splash lives in the UK that also faces moderate maritime climate like the Netherlands. Emma dons two of the new trends, neon and animal print. She opted for zebra.
Robin LaMonte of Hello I’m 50ish looks ageless in black and white. This outfit works 9 to 5 and play. Just switch the shoes and jewelry. Smart dressing!
A polka dot dress is always a good idea. #StylishMonday #MondayOutfit Click To Tweet
Michele Clark is full on trend with a look featuring polka dots. Well, maybe polka dots are an eternal classic? Who cares?
Julie Augustyn of Fashion, Trends and Friends offers another tweak on this seasons trends pairing snake print and Pantone’s It color Living Coral.
Andy (Andrea Schwartz)
Andrea Schwartz aka as Andy blogs at Pearls and Pantsuits. Like Jess she is from the South. Subtropical climate also has its chilly days. She faces them in a casual posh look with a white denim jacket over floral Tee with jeans and slides. Like Nancy’s sandals, slides are perfect when a rain shower hits.
Cynthia Scurry aka Cindy of Middle Sister Style looks posh street chic in bikers, blazer, pumps, yellow T-shirt and a trendy fannybag. Yes, they are having a moment again. Don’t you think too that they are so much chicer this time around than they were back in the 80s? Anyhow, isn’t this a cool look for going out with the girls?
Now how I wear my spring-style
Way up North here in the Interior, the commute to and from work requires still a well insulating coat as temperatures fall below the freezing point at night. Thus, in the morning we will still have to scrap the ice from our car windows. There is also still snow on the ground, but melting is strong in the afternoon. Thus, the curbs are clean, i.e. the pumps season started!
Underneath I wore an A-line skirt with 3/4 sleeve top. And yes, I felt cold when we took the photos. But I am used to feel cold when taking outfit photos. In the afternoon, it was warm enough to walk outside in just the look below as temperatures climbed into the 50s (more than 10oC).
