Springtime is one of the best times of the year when we celebrate blooming flowers, fresh breezes, greenery coming back to life, and the beginning of all our favorite warm weather activities. In the South, we have learned how unpredictable the weather can sometimes be during spring season, with sudden changes in temperature and rain or shine forecasts. This means that we have to be fully prepared with our spring wardrobes, making sure that all manner of cute and comfortable clothing is readily accessible! Today, we are sharing our spring essentials checklist to be your shopping guide for this season. With new apparel and accessories arriving by the oodles every day at Walker Boutique, you will easily be able to find everything you need for a practical and fashion forward closet this year! Download our checklist and be sure to check out our related suggestions below to help you find what you need at Walker Boutique!
If you’re like me, sundresses invoke the same emotion as the perfect spring day that’s sunny with a high of 75. Oh, happy day 🙂 Long or short, sleeveless, strappy, or strapless, a good sundress is the perfect hallmark for your warm weather closet essentials. For the practical shopper, check out our latest in colorful Piko sundresses for comfortable versatility that you can dress up or down for any activity. If you’re shopping for special occasion, shop sundresses in fashion forward prints or fabrics like Victorian florals, chambray, or linen for a more refined silhouette.
Athletic wear has come a long way from the shiny and loud neon spandex of the ’80s, and now you can feel comfortable to go anywhere in your workout gear like our All For Color athletic and swimwear lines available at Walker Boutique West. A high neckline the hottest trend in swimwear this year, so be sure to stop by to find your favorite mix and match two pieces!
Shibori tie dye patterns appeared in recent years, bringing a refreshing and more sophisticated take on a beloved retro design. At Walker, you will find stunning oversized tunics and fringed tanks in glorious combinations of marbled colors that make a statement piece for your ensembles. Pair these with tribal statement necklaces from Designs by Devra Jewelry like her best-selling pieces adorned with horns!
And speaking of jewelry…
A good rule of thumb is to balance fitted clothing with dainty, minimalist jewelry and flowy, oversized clothing with bold statement jewelry. In order to avoid looking weighted down, nix the idea of pairing a heavy necklace with your more tailored items; instead, respect the balance and pair those items with our favorite pearl choker or dainty Kendra Scott exposed druzy pendants. And to avoid those delicate pieces being overwhelmed by bold patterns and lots of fabric, pair your flowy and oversized clothing with stronger statement pieces that feature mixed media beads and stones and daring pieces such as the horns, tassels, and large stones that adorn most statement jewelry today! We love pairing our favorite Piko tops and dresses with the latest from DBD jewelry that features pops of colors.
That’s our highlight of essential spring clothing items you will need this season, including the gorgeous patterns, colors, and fabrics that are fashion forward for 2016. What is your go-to item for warm weather? Tell us in the comments below!
~ A note from the author, Sydney: Something about springtime weather just makes you want to revel in the fresh, green grass and soak up every drop of sun that your skin will drink. And with that refreshing wind of the new season comes the itch to celebrate each day with the happy colors and patterns of warm weather! I hope that you, like me, are enjoying perusing the latest on the blog and on Pinterest for inspiration. But more importantly, I hope you feel a fresh wind in your spirit, a fresh fire in your bones to enjoy each day that this year brings. As Marilla wisely counseled Anne Shirley in Anne of Green Gables, “Tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it.” Seize the day. Live in it. Bring flowers to a lonely stranger. Leave a secret card for your co-worker. Jump in the pool with your clothes on! Let’s make each day worth living for ourselves and everyone around us. Blessings!
