The grass is growing, the trees are budding, the flowers are blooming – time to shift your style into spring. And with outdoor events starting in earnest, why not mimic Mother Nature and incorporate the fresh and cheerful colors of the season into your wardrobe!
- Power of Pastels: Colors like Robin’s egg blue, pink, yellow, lavender and pale greens are the colors found in nature during this time of year. Wear these cheerful hues in a subtle way by using colorful accessories or make a statement by boldly wearing a pastel suit.
- Fun Florals: Micro patterns of flowers, leaves and vines give a nod to the blossoming life of spring without looking like you’re on vacation in the tropics.
- Breathable Materials: Suits made from cotton, linen or seersucker will keep you cool during the day and warm on those lingering chilly nights. Cotton and silk accessories will complement any spring ensemble by providing a light and airy element.

Spring is also when the local event schedule is in full swing – from Derby Day, to Easter Sunday, Mother’s Day, the Annual Arkansas Seersucker Social, to the start of wedding season, these tips will help you navigate springtime in style and your colorful wardrobe may even give Mother Nature a run for her money.
