What to Wear This May

The warm air and budding flowers of May and the theme of rebirth and revitalization inspire us to update our wardrobes. Around the Makeover Essentials office, we’re setting aside jeans and sweaters in favor of shorts and dresses to showcase some crisp new looks.


Each season presents a certain array of go-to neutrals. Darker tones, like maroons and grays, suit fall and winter. The lighter hues, such as tans and whites, are most appropriate for the warmer months. By mixing and matching these colors, it’s fun and easy to put together all sorts of fresh outfits.


Denim, which happens to be a mainstay for our fashionistas at Makeover Essentials, is in this season as well. We’re ditching the traditional blue for a while, however. Shades like mint green, periwinkle, lilac, and rose add pop and variety to just about any ensemble.


Rompers will remain popular throughout the summer. They’re just as comfortable and airy as sundresses, yet they add something a bit more flirty and exciting. Whether in prints or solids, rompers are versatile and pair nicely with lots of accessories.


There are two more looks worth mentioning, because we can’t get enough them of this spring – fruit prints and all-over eyelets! From pineapples and strawberries to watermelons and cherries, fruit is just as attractive as it is yummy. As far as eyelets go, there are few design details more feminine.


Embrace the springtime by trying these styles, and like Makeover Essentials on Facebook to discover what else we’re wearing.
