Last Monday was the first official day of spring — yay! Temperatures are still all over the place in many places for the country, but I thought we’d talk about some easy ways to freshen up your work wardrobe for spring. And, while I’ll get to the seasonal wardrobe switch at the end of the post, note that a lot of these suggestions are a great way to “finish” wearing your cold weather clothes before you launder them and put them away for the season.
- Bring on the pastels. Light blue blouses, pinks, mints, lavenders, pale yellows — they’re all a welcome addition to everyone’s wardrobes. If you’re a fan of “Tumblr pink,” the dusty, dusky pale pink that’s everywhere lately, pull it out — I know I have a dusky pink necklace that I just pulled out (and am wearing today with a dark green sweater that’s probably going away for the season in another wear or two.)
- Pale gray for the win. I’ve written before of my love of light gray pants instead of white — it’s also worth noting that you can wear very pale gray with darker, wintry grays and have a great outfit. Add a bright lip or a colorful accessory (hot pink feels kind of huge this season), and you’re set for the day.
