7 Outfits from Broadway to Wear this Weekend
Spring means warmer weather, blooming flowers, and a fresh start for your wardrobe. Before you put away all your winter clothes for good, check out these ideas to make the most out of them during this transitional season.
We looked at some of the most fashionable Broadway characters for inspiration on these spring essentials!
1. The Jean Jacket
Elle Woods from Legally Blonde majored in Fashion Merchandising, so her entire (very pink) wardrobe is quite enviable. We especially love the springy outfit she wears at the end of Act 1 during “So Much Better.” If you’re ready to start wearing dresses again but are afraid of getting chilly, take a tip from Elle and throw a jean jacket over your ensemble.
2. A Heavy Skirt & Light Top
If you have a skirt that you think might be too heavy for spring, think again! As long as you pair it with a flowy top, you’ll be set for the warmer weather. Check out how romantically Amélie from the new hit musical Amélie pairs a floral top and light sweater with a faux-wool skirt.
3. The Floral Dress
Of course, no spring wardrobe is complete without the perfect floral dress. We love how Jenna from the musical Waitress compliments her blonde locks with a sweet yellow ensemble during the heartbreaking number “She Used to be Mine.”
4. Bright Accessories
The ultimate spring accessory is a pair of Kinky Boots. If you’re lacking a pair in your wardrobe, you can also brighten up any drab pair of pants with bright sneakers, a jewel-toned top, a patterned sweater, and a statement scarf.
5. A Crop Top & Capris
If you’re feeling daring, why not wear a crop top on a night out? No one wore it better than Gloria Estefan who, in true 80’s fashion, often worked one with a pair of smart capris. Throw a light jacket on top and you’ll be ready to “Do the Conga” all season!
6. The Mid-Length Skirt
The weather isn’t quite warm enough for anything too short, so try throwing it back with a 1940’s-inspired mid-length skirt. You can dress it down with a pair of flats or dress it up with heels.
