Spring is finally here, and with it comes the ever-changing Vancouver weather.  One moment it’s sunny and warm, and the next, it could be pouring rain or chilling winds.  Dressing for this unpredictable spring weather can be tricky, but accessorizing can make all the difference.


Hats are a must-have accessory for Vancouver's spring weather.  A wide-brimmed hat is perfect for sunny spring days, while a beanie or beret is perfect for those chilly mornings or a bucket hat when it is wet.  I am loving the site for raincoats and bucket hats.  When picking out a hat, select a style that matches your face shape and consider the colour scheme of your outfits to choose a hat that complements and enhances them. 


For those chilly spring days,  a scarf is a great accessory to keep you warm and stylish.  A scarf can be worn loosely around the neck, draped over the shoulders or wrapped around the head for extra warmth.  Invest in a lightweight scarf made of cotton or silk that is easy to carry and versatile enough to wear with different outfits.


An umbrella is a spring essential in Vancouver.  While it’s always great to have the convenience of a lightweight, collapsible black umbrella for your purse or briefcase,  there are so many other options in umbrellas!  Think of your umbrella as a statement piece that can elevate even the most basic outfit.  Choose a colour or pattern that matches your personality and mood, whether it's stripes, polka dots, floral patterns or bright, bold hues.  In addition, the size and weight of the umbrella are also important, especially in the gusty Vancouver wind. 


Gloves aren't as important now as they were a couple of months ago,  but they are still a great accessory to have in case the temperature drops.  Opt for lighter gloves made of leather or even knit materials that you can easily slip on and off.

Final Touch

Lastly, don't forget that everything should match your outfits and style.  Accessories should enhance your overall outfit,  but not overpower it.  If you're wearing a patterned outfit,  choose solid-coloured accessories that complement the colour of the pattern.  If you're wearing bold and colourful pieces,  choose accessories in the same shade or a complementary hue. Remember, spring is all about mixing and matching different colours and patterns to create a fun, stylish look!  With these first steps you’re off to a great start.  Your next step should be calling Patti Morrison and learning how she can help you boost your confidence,  increase your credibility and generate new opportunities with styling packages for all ages, sizes, needs and budgets.  Schedule a fun and easy consultation today at
