The Lakelander is gearing up for warmer weather, and we’ve put together some fresh looks to help you step up your getaway style this season.

When you live where other people vacation, resort style is a way of life. As residents of a subtropical paradise, it is our privilege — nay, our responsibility — to wear it well. Spring is the all-too-brief stretch before the marathon of summer. We don’t have time to waste on boring pastels, the same old board shorts, or another tired sundress.

The world’s best weather is here. Now.

And we are implored to spend every moment we can enjoying it. It is your duty to arrive at every poolside cocktail party, three-hour patio brunch, and weekend staycation flexing spring style as only a Floridian can.

The Lakelander’s spring edit is anchored by preppy staples offset by rich tropical patterns and colors that won’t be seen north of Jacksonville until mid-July. Gentlemen, start with the classics. Light and bright checks and stripes in tailored silhouettes are a must. Then, elevate your look with a little irony by incorporating sporty layers and shoes. Ladies, refresh your spring looks by pairing more conservative pieces with glamorous details. Seriously, have fun. Both: complete your statement with elegant jewelry and maybe throw in a bold accessory that will turn heads as you reach for another glass of the world’s best mojito (or mimosa, if it’s Sunday).

Every day is sunny, no one is a stranger, and the right pair of shades is all the introduction you need anyway. So be inspired to live like you’re on holiday while you let a winsome and timely spring wardrobe do the work.
