It’s always a little tricky dressing for spring. You never know exactly what the weather has in store or what the temperature will be. That said, there are still a few ways to inject a bit of life in to your wardrobe whether it’s rain or shine outside. To make a statement this season, why not give some of these simple tips a try and update your look in seconds.
A great place to start when it comes to spicing up your spring look is by picking up some prints. There really is a print that looks good on everyone and it doesn’t have to be garish if you don’t want it to be, just go for what you feel comfortable in. Fashionable shirts will always help you stand out from the crowd, so if you’re feeling bold why don’t you try a cotton twill shirt with a geometric or spotted print? Alternatively, if you’re seeking something a little more low key you could always choose a classic gingham print to mix up your look.
Go for a more casual update by opting for a flannel shirt in pretty much any colour you want! Flannel shirts will always be casual or smart casual, so they are perfect for relaxing in on spring days or going from day to informal evening events. Whether plain or patterned, flannel shirts look great on their own teamed with a pair of slim-fit jeans. If you’re looking for something even more relaxed, you can keep a button-down flannel shirt open with a crisp white t-shirt underneath. Remember, fit is vital so make sure your shirt is cut close to the body to avoid looking unkempt.
If you’re usually afraid of choosing something colourful then the idea of picking out a pastel shirt could be a little daunting. That said, there are certain things you can do to ensure you’re feeling completely comfortable in paler hues. Regardless of which shade you choose always keep the rest of your look neutral. Pastel pieces are super versatile but that doesn’t mean they will go well with everything. Avoid sporting two pastel shades at all costs and go for more timeless colours over on trend shades for a look you can wear time and time again.
Another great way to add a new lease of life to your shirt collection is by trying out a new collar. If you’re used to the classic Italian collar, it may be time to go for a French or spread version. The great thing about opting for a different kind of collar for your day to day or evening look is that it opens up a whole realm of possibilities to your outfit. While some collars are better suited to a tie, more casual collars like the spread collar are ideal for attending semi-formal occasions. They are also perfect for achieving a smart but relaxed day time look.
