5 Easy Fashion Updates for the First Day of Spring

Flirty sundresses, easygoing flats and pops of color with playful patterns are just some of the pretty little things synonymous with spring.

The season is often looked upon as a time of change, shedding the cold and dark of winter months in favor of something new and refreshing. Just because today is the first day of spring doesn’t mean you have to completely overhaul your wardrobe with new clothes and accessories. The key to mastering spring fashion is to identify trends that can be easily incorporated with items that already exist in your closet.

Though it might not seem as fun as getting a brand new outfit, you’ll be surprised how a new addition or two can completely refresh and brighten your look.

1. Place a Skirt Over a Dress

This might not even require you to purchase anything new. Simply layer an A-line skirt on top of a longer dress, like a lightweight chambray shirtdress, for an effortless twist. This also gives you a chance to mix patterns and color combinations, just like Peter Som did on his spring runway.

2. Double Cuffs
