It’s officially spring which means that it’s time to transition your wardrobe from warm winter clothing into flirty spring items. Once warm weather hits, most women can’t wait to get rid of heavy winter trousers in favor of lighter fabrics and shorter hemlines. If you’re looking to show off your legs this spring, consider wearing one of the items mentioned below. All of these items are highly versatile, work on a variety of body types and can be tailored to suit your personal style.
Classic Shift Dress
This work wardrobe staple is always a great fashion choice when you want to show a little leg. The shift dress allows you to display your gams while also remaining conservative and classic. Runways were full of bold colors this spring, so you can make your look more interesting by incorporating some vibrant colors into your closet. This season, orange and cobalt blue are two of the hottest hues, and you can still tone them down to be office appropriate. Switch your pumps for some strappy sandals to make your look go from day to night instantly.
Skorts have a pretty bad reputation and have been considered “uncool” for a long time, but they’re beginning to make a comeback this spring. Perhaps it’s the popularity of the athleisure trend or that the 90s are enjoying a massive revival that is the driving force behind the skort trend this spring. Skorts are a great way to show off your legs, and they are available in styles that can take you from your morning run to a fun girl’s night out. To show off your legs in this trend, look for skorts that are bold and structured.
Another dress that blends seamlessly from the office to happy hour is the wrap dress. The queen of the wrap dress, Diane von Furstenberg, showcased her signature piece in bright colors like pink and interesting patterns. Fashion week was full of wrap dresses, both on the runways and off. Stars like Gabrielle Union and Victoria Beckham wore classic wrap dresses with modern twists and in unique textiles. Look for a denim or leather wrap dress to showcase your legs in an unexpected way.
Tons of designers featured pieces in their collections that included sheer, breezy fabrics. One of the most popular pieces on runways was the mini skirt turned maxi skirt with the use of sheer chiffon. In addition to skirts, designers created pants that begin as shorts, but transition into sheer panels of fabric that fall to the ankles. Sheer pieces are a really fun, playful way to show off your legs this spring. These skirts and pants are absolutely perfect if you haven’t had time to shave your legs, or if you’re concerned that your legs are looking a bit pasty from being covered up all winter.
You can highlight your legs with a large variety of pieces this spring from the demure sheer pants, the ultra-feminine wrap dress or with an unexpected skort. To really show off your legs and make them the focal point, wear nude pumps with either a pointy, almond or round toe because these shoes make your legs look much longer. Play with different shoes and accessories to create endless spring looks that show off your legs.
