Reaching for Classics This Spring

When spring fashions show up online or in the stores, there’s often an audible groan. Why? At first glance, the selections can look like island party fare: sheer fabrics, jean shorts, itty-bitty slip dresses. Is everyone on vacation? Professional women looking for summer work attire feel left out.

There’s also the woman who favors clothes and accessories that are classic and elegant all year round. Women who enjoy refined and sophisticated fashion will shade their eyes from the bright colors and flashy prints and hope for better choices when fall until rolls around.

If this is you, believe me when I say this: this is your bonanza year for fashions that suit your style statement. Let me give you a few examples.

Bust out in beige

Someone could look at beige and not even register that it’s a color. A woman with a refined eye can see beige and swoon—especially if that shade is good with her skin tone. A lot of designers showed head-to-toe beige outfits. Call it oatmeal, sand, or stone—it’s a color to love. Could you be new to beige? If you want to project a vibe of quiet assurance, do it in this color. If wearing it head-to-toe feels like too much, find a piece or two and wear it with your separates. You’ll quickly discover a silk blouse, trousers, dress, skirt, or trench to fall in love with.

Highlight the shoulders

Wear a blazer with structured shoulders. You can find them in black for that ultra-classic look or consider shopping for a novelty blazer that you can wear with your favorite jeans or pant style for a change of pace. The cut of the blazer, the quality fabric, and the terrific tailoring will ensure it sends the right message.

Add Structure to your handbag.

I’m sure you’ll notice many floppy bags this season. Keep looking and you will discover there are plenty of handbags that that have more structure to them. The briefcase is back in style, and a framed bag will look chic and polished.

There are so many options in structured handbags in terms of style and color. Buy one or two to go with your spring wardrobe.
