Spring Has Sprung, at Least the Spring Trends
Do you know that old country song “Springtime in Alaska is forty below?” Browsing fashion and style blogs in spring reminds me of that song. You can see how spring makes it up North, or to be more precise, how the Sun makes it up North. The fashionistas from the South present already their new spring wardrobe additions in a real spring styling. The farther north a fashion and/or style blogger lives, the more winterized versions of the new trends you can see at this time a year.
My Spring Wardrobe Updates
Here the statement belt is one of my spring wardrobe updates. Actually, I bought also another one with the long belt trend for spring. You saw already how I wore the knit dress in the post at this link. Other spring updates are a pair of statement shoes and an embroidered shirt that was on my spring wish list. I haven’t worn them yet due to the snow on the ground.
For the record, it wasn’t -40F (-40oC) when the outfit photos were taken, but -27.4 F (-33oC). Anyhow, it was cold enough for me that day. 😉I hope it's cold enough for you today. #Alaskasaying Click To Tweet
What I Love about Spring in Alaska
The time of daylight plus civil twilight now is more than 12 hours. Thus, it is longer bright outside in Alaska than anywhere in the mid latitudes at this time a year. Fairbanks has still about 5 hours of light in winter. Up here the length of days (and in fall nights) increases faster in Fairbanks than in mid latitudes. Did you know that?
Typical Alaska Spring Outfit
Today’s outfit is a typical spring outfit in Alaska, but it would work as a great winter look in the South. Well, may be down South the zipper would be more zipped up in winter. 😉
How is spring progressing where you live? Can you already wear the new spring trends alone or do you have to “winterize” them? I am curious.
When you like the blog, you may also want to get my book How to Dress for Success in Midlife. Buy it now.
Where to Find Looks for March, April, and May
Since temperatures tend to increase as spring progresses, but still vary, I created lookbooks for each month. They contain outfit ideas for the typical temperature ranges for work and play.

- April lookbook for the Interior of Alaska
