If you've noticed the days getting longer or a peek of new blooms, you already know that March means the worst of winter is behind you, and there are only brighter days ahead. Sure, it'll still be frigid and rainy this month, however, you have the anticipation of the first day of spring (Saturday the 20th, to be exact) to get you through it. While you patiently wait for the flowers to bloom, consider putting together cheery, colorful outfits this March to hold you over until then.
Now that it'll be warm enough to leave your apartment, you can assemble cute outfits for outdoor occasions like picnics in the park, or (social distancing) happy hours at your local neighborhood restaurant. However, with the unpredictable weather March brings, transitional dressing is key. Meaning, you'll want to hold on to your warm puffer jackets a bit longer. But, that doesn't mean you can't throw your coat over springy dresses and skirts for those warm days. Below, find 31 vibrant outfits to wear all month long. Remember: The brighter, the better.
