We Are The Northwest: 3 Spring Style Tips

It’s easy to fall into the gloominess of the northwest.

It’s easy to fall into the navy blues, evergreen hues, and the comfort of black and white. You can always stay true to the Northwest classic colors, but don’t be afraid to wake up your wardrobe with texture, color, and metallics. Here are a few style tips to help spruce up your wardrobe for spring:

Style Tip #1: Knot Your Tops
Whether it’s a classic white tshirt or a second hand sweater, change up your look by simply knotting your top. In this look, I pulled over this purple sweater over my velvet dress. I didn’t like the way it just hung down so I thought I would just knot the front to add a synch in my waist and create a modified crop top.

Style Tip #2: One Color Look
Make a strong statement this spring with a one color look. Ribicca pulled together a cotton wrap shirt with a perforated skirt that were both mustard yellow and pulled it off perfectly. If you aren’t ready for a strong color, I suggest wearing a one color look in earth tones – like navy, forest greens, or tans. If you are feeling bold though, feel free to rock whatever color you want.

Style Tip #3: Metallic Bottoms
A fun way to add some light and texture into your spring wardrobe is adding metallic bottoms. In this shoot, Bailey styled these light weight, light pink metallic pants and McKenna styled this metallic maxi skirt. Both pieces can be styled up or down depending on the pieces you pick to complete the look. Adding pieces like denim shirts or white knotted tshirts can help bring a metallic pants to an everyday look. While adding pieces like off the shoulder blouses or turtle neck sweaters or high heels can help dress up the metallic skirt for more formal events. 

Thank you everyone who made this project possible! I hope everyone has been enjoying the We Are the Northwest series so far! :)
