Even if the weather forecast says otherwise, spring really is just around the corner. And while it may be difficult to think about shorts and sundresses while temperatures are below freezing, now is the best time to shop for new spring outfits if you want to be on-trend. Need some inspiration? Here are 10 ways to find your favorite spring outfits for 2020.
When it comes to spring dresses for women, you can’t help but be inspired by a floral design. But if flowers aren’t your thing, the trend this year is vibrant colors. Don’t shy away from bright yellows, pinks, greens, and the Pantone color of the year: classic blue.
Whether it’s a T-shirt dress, polo shirt dress or anything in between, the shirt dress is a wardrobe staple. They’re super versatile, too, since you can wear them with heels for a professional look or with sneakers for a casual weekend vibe. Look for a fit-and-flare dress for a more formal look, a polo dress with a collar for a more athletic look, or a button-down dress with a belt for a more professional look. The options are endless!
When it comes to trends for 2020, retro prints from the ‘60s and ‘70s are all the rage. Whether you choose floral prints or a psychedelic pattern, balance out the look with something solid. For example, a retro-print blouse can look stylish with solid khaki shorts or capris.
Bermuda shorts are back in style this year, and their longer length is great for those in-between spring temperatures. You may even see women wearing them to work this year! If you choose Bermudas for a more professional look, choose styles with crisp pleats that look more like a skirt than shorts.
Slim-fit ankle pants are still in style this year, but 2020 is inviting back more wide-leg and boot-cut styles. That means women have a lot to choose from in regard to spring pants whether for work or for play. Just remember that if you wear wide-legged pants, you might want a slimmer fitting top.
Cropped pants are a spring staple, letting your ankles breath after being tucked behind long pants all winter. You’ll see a lot of high-waisted cropped pants this year, and they look really cool when you tuck a snug-fitting top into the waistband and pair them with a cropped jacket.
Knee-length skirts are popular this year, and a pencil skirt with a nice spring top makes for a great spring work outfit. They’re versatile enough to match any type of top and look great with a pair of booties. A mock turtleneck, lightweight blouse, or even a T-shirt can look great with a knee-length skirt.
Whether a long- or short-sleeve blouse, the look for spring 2020 is romantic with lots of detail. Look for ruffles, crochet embellishments, and belts that make it fun to get dressed in the morning. The best thing about a great blouse is that it can be worn with any type of bottoms, from jeans to skirts.
While you’re refreshing your spring wardrobe for 2020, don’t forget about your yoga and gym attire. Cropped leggings are great for spring as they keep you cool enough when you work up a sweat but warm enough for chilly temperatures. A couple of new dry-fit tops and bras can refresh not only your wardrobe but also your whole attitude toward getting out there and being active as the weather gets warmer.
April showers bring May flowers, but they don’t do our hair or wardrobe any favors. A new rain jacket can prepare us for whatever Mother Nature throws our way. Consider one with an inner lining that keeps you warm enough along with a waterproof shell that keeps you dry. A hooded trench coat with a belted buckle is great for spring, especially if it has nice big pockets for your hands to hide.
Spring is a great time to live by the “out with the old, in with the new” mentality. Get a head start on your spring cleaning and donate anything you haven’t worn in the past few years. Be sure to save anything you can mix and match with newer items so you can bring the older item back to life again.
