Top 5 Spring Outfits (when it's still so cold!)
Some women love summer fashion and enjoy stripping down their look until there is almost nothing left. We love the cool and live for layering, especially on pleasant days when it's warm enough to show off our style. Sure, winter is great, but bulky sweaters take their toll on our self-esteem and keep us from wearing so many cute things. When spring rolls around we feel a bit like a seed cracking out of our wool shells and stretching into the world to BLOOM with our fresh spring outfits.
The calendar may say that it's spring, but the weather as usual has its own ideas. While layers are a winter necessity that you would never dream of shedding; spring requires easy looks that we can adjust from warm to cool! We've paired some of our AbbeyPost dresses with wonderful outerwear that will make you happy even if the morning is a little too chilly for your taste. For an extra layer add tights and a scarf – stay warm and remember with this wacky weather there are still plenty of cool days ahead!
Abbey Post 'Holly' Wrap Dress
Wear your wrap with a tailored jacket for workday style that will look great if it warms up and you need to lose the jacket. Keep the look professional with pumps and add unique and fun jewelry for a personal touch. A great bag is the key to keeping your work (and world) in order – we love a great investment piece that looks as great at an elegant lunch as it works as a briefcase. We adore blues this spring. Refine this brilliant turquoise shade with gorgeous grays, or take it in a more casual direction with exuberant colors and contrast.
Abbey Post 'Sutton' Sheath Dress
A sheath dress skims over your body to show a smooth shape, and while we love all SEVEN-color options, we’re suckers for a great black. Take the dark shade to spring with bright colors and don't be afraid to try your hand at color blocking. The mode of the moment includes everything from monochrome, to color compliments. Try not to get too overwhelmed by the possibilities! For a modern look, add a floral piece and play off its colors as in the ensemble below.
Abbey Post 'Michelle' A-Line Dress
While recent trends have focused on black, white and grey neutrals; camels are beginning to trend and will be all over this fall. Get a jump on the style with creamy leathers, and mix with multiple shades in order to create rich depth and avoid a flat "matchy matchy" more dated style. Sleeves should never be sneezed at in the spring. You'll stay warm and comfortable and if you set aside this look for summer (despite your crazily over air-conditioned office) you'll be tapping your toes to pull it out again come fall.
Abbey Post 'Kelly' A-Line Dress
A-line dresses flatter many shapes by showing off your feminine shape while flowing over your hips instead of clinging to your curves. Many of the spring trends have been somewhat surprising this year. Of course, there are florals and pastels, but combinations of black, white and red have been a staple of the cool spring so far. For a more formal look and workday style stick to red and black, but add a white scarf or graphic pop if you're ready for some fierce fashion.
Abbey Post 'Veronika' A-Line Dress
An A-line dress doesn't necessarily have to cinch at the waist. This casual t-shirt style doesn't cling to your belly, and leaves flow at the hem for a flattering cut. Try a tempting aqua and pair with pretty pinks, oranges and other bright colors for a chic and playful contrast. Work white into your look for spring freshness, and if you're feeling bold try a floral jacket that ties all of those pleasant sunny tones together.
Whatever your style; we have the made to measure look you're looking for this spring at Abbey Post.
