Spring style — it can be tricky to nail in-between-weather attire without having to go all-out in head-to-toe florals. The key is to strike a balance between lighter and brighter shades, mixed with sturdy textured staples. And who better to show you the light than this street-styler, who's hitting the sweet spot with this eclectic look…
HOW TO DO SPRING WITH AN EDGE
By Maybelle Morgan, May 7, 2018
If "florals for spring" isn't your vibe, this alternative packs a bold punch, as exhibited by this Paris Fashion Week goer. The skate-vibes graffiti-print midi dress makes for a loud centerpiece, and the cropped raw-edge denim jacket and jet-black leather boots immediately dilute the color palette, make it day-appropriate. For an additional nod to spring? Pretty detailing on the accessories, but with a twist (check the glittery sunnies and shark-print rosebud tote).
For your own take, enlist the help of this '80s-style party-season fave: a silky magenta midi in oversized Scandi fit. The distressed light-wash denim jacket instantly dresses it down, plus the cropped length adds flattering structure. A pair of black, all-weather Dr. Martens will help to grunge up the look. And as for accessories, keep it wearable for day with sleek black Ray-Ban aviators, plus a monochrome striped shopper in '80s-tacky fantastic plastic.
