With a new season fast approaching, it’s time to follow the trends of one runway to the next. Pantone Color Institute’s forecast of colors that dominated the Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 runway saw the likes of classic and sophisticated shades from deep blues, to creamy whites, and muted greys. As the color palette is expected to liven up with vibrant aquas and warm corals come the new season, it’s time to get your wardrobes in order. Transitioning from winter to spring trends may be quite difficult––not just in terms of color but for the actual items you’ll need as well.
So without further ado, here are four wardrobe essentials to have some fun under the sun in for Spring/Summer 2020 in Florida:

You probably never would have thought that your grandmother’s kitschy 60s wallpaper would make a comeback, especially on items of clothing. But florals for spring are very popular, and if you think about it, it’s the perfect print to match the flowy silhouette of a sundress. Have a look at Nordstrom’s Tuscan Floral Wrap Dress dotted with little flowers as it can be accessorized for more formal events, or worn as a cover-up for a day at the beach. Its classic floral print means it probably won’t ever go out of style, and you’ll be reaching for it every season.

Spring and summer call for al fresco drinks, outdoor meals, BBQs, and picnics––even on weeknights. To catch that last bit of sunshine before the sun sets, it’s best to be prepared and already come dressed for the occasion. You can consider Woman Within’s 7-day knit straight leg pant because they come in a wide variety of colors and inclusive sizes. They’re acceptable at work but can definitely be dressed up or down depending on whichever of these plans you find yourself busy with.

If you thought crop tops were too short, you may find bralettes a little extreme, but they’ll surely urge you to embrace your body and remain confident. It’s the logical antidote to Florida’s hot and humid weather, and you won’t feel out of place strutting around in this piece. Out From Under’s Esmeralda smocked bra top is an affordable and versatile option that can be worn with high waisted shorts, a maxi skirt, or even your day-to-night pants. You can even throw over a long cardigan if it gets chilly at night, or a raincoat if a sudden thunderstorm emerges.

Platform sandals of the seventies are rumored to dominate 2020’s fashion scene, and what better way to debut your pair by giving them a spin once the weather permits. Platforms are the perfect mix of added height and maximum comfort, so finding a neutral pair you can wear all season long is a must. Steve Madden’s Gemstone Natural Multi platforms are a fusion of traditional casual espadrilles glammed up with some gemstones. These are sure to match whatever cut-offs and dresses you already have in your wardrobe. Their rubber soles even ensure you can go for long walks in the balmy weather.
Embrace the sunshine by constructing your own closet. You can brighten and freshen up your wardrobe with these spring and summer staples and will definitely get a ton of compliments as well as having people wondering where you got some of these pieces!
