Macey’s 5 Tips for Spring Styling

April is upon us and for those who are familiar with Florida’s bipolar spring weather, you know it’s nearly impossible to dress for day-to-day activites. Who hasn’t left the house on a chilly morning, only to be sweating before lunchtime? Over my years in fashion, I have picked up a few tips that will help you beat the heat, stay chic, and be prepared for chilly nights! Read to the end for some of my hand-picked spring outfit essentials.

1) A light sweater over the shoulders is a classic and timeless way to keep you prepared for changing weather throughout the day. This look is so chic to me and is a Morgan Stewart (style icon) signature move. Throwing a sweater over the shoulders elevates any look. I love this hack with vintage denim, a t-shirt, and loafers for an everyday look on the go. For date night simply change into a pair of dark wash denim and throw on a heeled mule! If you prefer to wear flats, throw on a patent leather Mary Jane and hit the town! It’s giving ‘I just got back from Capri and am headed to spend the month of April in St. Barts!’

2) Keep the Loafers on deck! Loafers don’t always have to go with long trousers! Loafers are a great shoe to have in your wardrobe that will work for any season. I especially love them with a pair of your favorite linen shorts, or short dress.  I love having a play on a masculine and feminine combined approach to my personal style. Add a pair of cute socks to give the look a little more interest. Nothing says “she‘s smart” like a classic loafer.

3) Bring out your whites! I personally do not believe in ever putting away your whites; but if you stray from them in the winter, now is the time. White on white is one of the chicest and most underrated tonal combinations. Break it up with a classic black or brown belt, and neutral blazer thrown over the shoulders. Also, feel free to pop some fun spring colors into your accessories. A red bag or red flats would work well. This look is sure to make you stand out – and make people wonder where you got your style from 😉

4) Fun Sunglasses! This is one of the easiest ways to bring some thought to your look. I’m loving the trend of burgundy sunglasses this season! It is not as intimidating as red accessories but still packs a colorful punch. I love playing with circular shapes for spring in my eyewear! Oversized sunnies are back people. It’s time to break out your best “2000s” inspired giant sunglasses! “That’s hot” – Paris Hilton

5) An oversized linen or cotton blend button-up will take you far this season. Throw on a pair of your favorite denim and a classic white or black crew neck tee to layer under the perfect oversized linen button-up. My favorite linen-esque button-ups are from the company called Frank & Eileen (you can find this brand at our very own @GrayBoutique) I also love the look of a layered oversized button-up paired with your favorite summer short to give that effortless comfortable look while keeping it classy.

Sweaters for throwing over your shoulders!

The best lightweight loafer! I linked to the Burgundy pair, but I also love the black pair and cream option! (These do take a minute to break in but once you do they are very comfortable and pretty indestructible).

There is nothing like a well-fitting white t-shirt… Here are two good options! 

A classic Oxford-style button-up is always a go-to. Give it an up-to-date feel with an oversized silhouette!
