The snow has melted, the sun is out, and the days are growing warmer. If you look around you, the streets are filled with new spring fashions. Flowing garments and rich, vibrant hues have replaced heavy fur coats and dark knee-high boots, and we at Phoenix Trading Company are happily embracing the change. Luckily for you, we have the best tips on how to look your very best this spring.
Tops: Spring fashion emphasizes replacing heavier, denser fabrics with lighter alternatives. Lightweight materials like chiffon and lace keep you cool during the warmer months, while providing an effortlessly chic look. This spring, we recommend stocking your wardrobe with bright hues of your favorite colors, such as lavender or periwinkle blue. For those who enjoy wearing green, this mint green Kate & Mallory tunic blouse is a must-have example of feminine springtime fashion.
Bottoms: While its not quite shorts season, there are plenty of ways to adapt your bottoms to the season. Try swapping out your dark jeans for a lighter wash, like these light blue Calvin Klein's, or take this opportunity to add a bold pop of color with bright pastel pants.
Shoes: Spring marks a dramatic change in footwear. Instead of clunky winter boots, slip on a pair of brightly colored sandals for some statement springtime flair. As a bonus, heeled sandals, like these red satin Marlene’s, accentuate the legs to add a slimmed, toned appearance.
