Few Things To Know About Spring
Spring may be called differently according to your culture and location.
And because it’s all about location, It’s hard to say when exactly starts Spring.
In the Northern Hemisphere, Spring start between 19 and 21st March till around 21 June (Beginning of Summer). While in the Southern Hemisphere, Spring start in August and finish in November.
So Spring in the Northern Hemisphere is Autumn in the Southern one.
This year, the first day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere will be Wednesday, March 20th till June 21st.
Spring like Summer, is also characterized by the days that get Longer and Warmer(internal link to another session in the article). Indeed, on the Vernal Equinox (First day of the spring), the daylight is equal(12hours) to Darkness, then as the Spring goes, the day get longer and longer.
Finally, “SPRING” is the season in which the nature comes back to life. Many animals have babies, some like bears who hibernate, start to wake up and become activate. Flowers start to bloom but it’s also raining.
For us human-beings, Spring means changes of habit, especially dressing code. But which one to adopt?
Well lot of things are to be considered when choosing your new Spring-Summer style:
In general, the average temperature in spring according to your location may vary from 24.7 °F (-4.1 °C) in Alaska to a high of 69.9 degrees Fahrenheit (21.1 degrees Celsius) in Florida according to Current Result.
In Europe, the average temperature is from 41°F (5°C)(sometimes lower) to 68°F (20°C) according to your location.
While it’s really difficult to determine what the average temperature is going to be, we all agree that Spring is hotter than Winter but colder than Summer.
Therefore, you will want to dress to feel comfortable whenever the temperature suddenly drop.
You definitely don’t want to go Sleeveless, Hawaiian shirt or tank top yet, cause even if the Sun shine bright, the wind is still cold and the last thing you want is to catch a cold.
Keep your trousers and jeans still.
As the overall temperature raises, you might want to consider a lighter, more comfortable and breathable type of fabrics clothing.
Fabric is really important. Let me repeat myself, for Spring and Summer, what you want is a light but most importantly breathable type of In that category, my top recommendation for you are:
Linen is a good choice for both Spring and Summer as it comes in different texture: thick and thin. Its capacity to dries very fast make it a good choice for Spring as it often shower rains during Spring. Breathable fabric, its real only con is its tendency to wrinkle.
But nowadays some linens are tightly woven enough to stay reasonably crisp.
If you will opt for more Linen clothes, consider to use more Dry Clean than machine wash. If you cannot afford dry cleaning, no panic, machine clean is also very OK.
Cotton get 20% stronger when it gets wet and is slower to dry compare to Linen but is easier to wash. Before buying cotton based clothes, makes sure you have an iron because it wrinkles easily.
Nevertheless, that cotton can withstand heat, detergent and bleach, just like Linen it can be damaged by mildew and prolonged exposure to sunlight.
Also, keep in mind that cotton will shrink unless it has been treated not to, so check the labels et ask for more information in the shop before buying.
We highly recommend Rayon based clothe for both Spring and Summer because of his ability to be highly Absorbent but they do not insulate body heat.
While a special treatment can be applied to the fabric to make it washable and limit shrinkage to a fairly 3%, rayon must be treated with care. Indeed, you want to avoid moisture, stretching(Rayon has the lowest elastic recovery of any fiber).
We recommend Dry-cleaning only for rayon unless it’s a HWM Rayon, always ask for more information in the shop before you buy. Viscose type rayon is the best you want to go for.
Silk: Stronger than Cotton and Linen, Silk is a protein Fiber known for being elastic and resilient with moderate resistance to wrinkling. Its absorptive capacity makes comfortable apparel for both hot and cold seasons plus it dries quickly.
A bit expansive, Silk fabric are subject like most fabric to normal shrinkage, all you need to restore it back to its initial size is an iron. Silk fabric has a smooth surface and thanks to that, it does not attract dirt. Talking about dirt, the best way to remove them from your Silk clothes is by dry-cleaning.
If not, feel free to use the Washing Machine BUT on the gentle cycle and with cold water using a Mesh bag. You can also hand-wash Though silk. Here is for you a video tutorial about how to hand-wash silk.
Here what you generally need to know about color:
Dark Color: Due to the fact that Dark color absorb a lot more energy, absorb as well a lot more Heat. Indeed, the closest a color get to black, higher is the amount of light absorbed. The absorbed light is then transformed into thermal energy then the heat you feel.
Light Color: Color such as Yellow, pink or Orange has the property to reflect back a high degree of Light, this is why they are called Bright. And because they reflect most of the incoming light(the energy), only a small amount is absorbed and transform in thermal energy, and this is why you feel less hot.
With that said, if you are a trendy person, we have done some Research for you. And the 2019 spring summer on-trend color (the most popular) are :

The Day By Day Forecast
In both Spring and summer, one important thing to keep in mind is that the weather is really capricious.
At a moment it’s sunny, at the next moment it shower-rains or it gets cloudy and colder.
Our advice to you is to check the next day’s forecast before choosing your clothes.
A bad Weather is a good reason to make use of accessories(Umbrellas, waterproof spray for shoes) and jacket, waterproof Jacket.
Not only it makes you look good, it shoes also how confident and ready you are. An umbrella is not only a gadget, it’s an extension of you, it tells a lot about your personality. If you’ve ever been in a shop for umbrella, then you know what I’m talking about.
Find your umbrella: Best For Car User
If there is one this that surprises me the most nowadays, is how advanced is the technology in almost everything but how late and retro people still are.
Some old tricks such as using water and vinegar to clean the salt on your shoes during winter still and will always work. But let’s be smarter and prevent instead of curing.
There is a lot of waterproof spray to protect your high value shoes, some work better than others.
It might be overwhelming to buy a water repilant spray for the first time. Or maybe you have been disappointed by the first one you bought.
In both cases, I will recommend that you check This One from KIWI out. I have been satisfied with them so far.
Still talking about rain, you might want to consider getting yourself a light waterproof jacket if you are not the umbrella type of person.
Indeed, not holding an umbrella does not necessarily mean lack of confidence. Personally I like to have my hands free, but also because I‘m easy to forget or lose such gadget especially when I’m out for a party.
So according to the circumstances I prefer a Waterproof jacket to an umbrella.
Check few of them out, YOU will be surprised how good they look. Check out this Amazing Website With WaterProof Jacket’s Reviews.
While everybody may look the same through their style, what distinguish them from one another are the small details such as glasses, earrings, bracelets, watches, in one word GADGETS.
Spring and Summer being a worm not to say hot period, we just cannot help dress light and when possible top and bottomless. And that when gadgets are the most important, they almost replace clothes. A man or a woman wearing a gadget always looks more interesting IN MY OPINION.
Gadget are like silent story teller, usually associated with gift or travels, and more generally with something valuable.
