Today’s post is a bit unexpected, because it features #HusbandofGlam!
Bonobos gave me some some spring outfit color inspiration, I immediately turned to Dan’s style.
The men I know typically gravitate towards darker color palettes. But Dan loves to mix and match different tones. Whenever he comes out of our closet, I’m always inspired by how innovative he is with color. And because he is a stylish man, pastel hues are a staple in his spring wardrobe.
If I had to read Dan’s mind (because he is already sleeping and grunted at me when I asked him how he would explain his Spring style, haha) I would say he starts with a neutral or earth tone bottom. These pants are some of my favorites, because they are a blueish slate gray and go with everything. They anchor the outfit. He also has similar pairs in navy blue and khaki, and I really like the color congos, too.
Next, he layers his shirts depending on the day and the weather. For today, he kept it simple with a bright button down. He has a rule: never ever wear a button down that is a dark shade. Only light colors. Black, red, dark purple…all out of the question.
Since most of you are women and you probably don’t need men’s styling advice (well, you could be taking notes to help your men!) I put together a spring color palette to inspire a look that would go with Dan’s spring style!
GREEN PATTERNED DRESS | TASSEL EARRINGS | BLUSH CLUTCH | PINK PEPLUM TOP | STRIPED TEE | LIGHT BLUE BAG | PEACH BLOUSE | GREEN RUFFLE BLOUSE | GRAY MULES | PINK LACE TOP | CAMEL SANDALS | BEADED EARRINGS | LACE SKIRT | BLUE PANTS
Pastel colors are my go-to for spring; light green, periwinkle, and blush. But, like Dan, I also love some brights, so I added bright pink to my palette. I also chose some more earthy tones like gray and camel colored shoes to anchor the outfit, and a gray-blue skirt to add dimension.
I left denim off, but blue and white jeans are a neutral tone that is just a no-brainer. I also love bright pants like the mint green ones I wore in this post!
In the spirit of helping you save some moolah, I kept everything under $100, but most things are well below that!
Did I leave any spring colors out? What colors are in your go-to spring palette?
