Depending on where you call home, it might not quite feel like spring yet, especially if you’re still surrounded by snowbanks and below-freezing temperatures! Yet, the budding flowers, green grass, and milder days will be here before you know it. Ring in the season in style with these fun additions to your closet (and suitcase)!
What to wear for Spring travel:
Clamdiggers, pedal-pushers … whatever you want to call them, nothing says spring like these cute cropped jeans and pants. Not only are they perfect for exploring a new city all afternoon long, but they can work just as well for a more formal evening outfit when paired with a sweater or blouse. Don’t be afraid to experiment with bold colors and patterns like polka dots and stripes.
They’re quite possibly the easiest way to add a pop of color and pull together any spring ensemble in a pinch. Whether you’re planning on a day of sightseeing, shopping, or wine-sipping, they’ll help you look instantly cool and classy with almost no extra effort.
White Tennis Shoes
Comfort AND style! Slip on some old-fashioned Keds for a simple statement that won’t hurt your tootsies while you trek around town. If you’re feeling adventurous, snag a pair in your favorite color for a change from the basic white variety. Plus, these sneakers go with absolutely everything, making packing your footwear a breeze!
A classic denim jacket is the ideal piece of outerwear for those chilly spring nights when you want to take a stroll or dine al fresco — not to mention, it’s also a perfect pick for a funky cultural event like a concert, music or film festival.
Need to dress it up a bit, but want to spare the pain and agony of uncomfortable heels? Bejeweled or brightly-colored flats are the perfect balance between low-key and luxurious; casual enough to wear to brunch, yet stylish enough to wear to a cocktail bar with a cute dress in the evening!
Sure, black is a timeless travel staple, but why not introduce some shades of peach, mint, lavender, or butter yellow into your wardrobe for a change? You might be surprised at how much a coral cardigan or powder-blue belt can lighten up your whole look.
