Spring is in full swing in Chicago, and choosing what to wear for Chicago's fickle weather season can be tough. Here are five great pieces of clothing to keep your style on point as we transition to summer.
One of the most versatile pieces in womenswear is the shirt dress. They can be dressed up or down with belts and jewelry, worn alone on warmer days, or paired with tights and a jacket on cooler ones. This dress is the perfect shade of blue for spring and beyond.
Whites look great year round, but they're especially wonderful and fresh for spring. White sweaters are perfect for spring in Chicago. They're light enough to be worn as we transition towards warmer weather.
Nothing says spring and summer quite like floral and tropical prints. They're a great way to add some color and revive a closet after a long winter. Print dresses like this one can be worn with a blazer to the office—and with a leather jacket or a light cardigan for more casual settings.
Now that it's finally warm enough to put away the boots, menswear-inspired flats are great for work and weekends. Picking pointy flats in softer hues like yellow or pink gives them a feminine touch and adds an easy pop of color to every look.
Taking care of your skin is always in style, and one of the most fashionable ways to do so is with a wide brim hat. Hats add a little polish and whimsy to every outfit. Look for a hat that fits well so it won't fly away when the wind picks up.
