Choosing clothing for Colorado spring

What to Wear During Springtime in Colorado

Posted on March 16, 2020 by Steven Toltz

There is a long running joke in Colorado that if you don’t like the weather, “just wait a minute.” Let’s face it, the temperature can be in the 60s one day and you can wake up the very next day to snow falling. We’ve seen snow in June and high 70s in February, making it challenging to know what to wear in Colorado’s changing seasons. Spring, however is our “wildcard” season – did you know that March is our snowiest month?

So what should you wear during springtime in Colorado? Dependable Cleaners has some ideas.

Layer Up

Your tulips, irises and daffodils have started to bloom, but there is still a chill in the air. Colorado is a pretty casual state. We love our fleece, leggings, and jeans, but love to start bringing out the cute dresses when spring is in the air. In the springtime, you’ll often see people going from layers in the morning to short sleeve shirts and light jackets in the afternoon. The season is unpredictable, so we recommend always having a jacket or sweatshirt nearby because you may need it at any given moment.

What Should I Wear

For many, the first official day of spring means it’s time to box up the winter coats, heavy sweaters, and woolen items and bring out the t-shirts, spring skirts, and linen suits. For those of us in Colorado, not so fast – you may want to hold on to a sweater or two. Spring fashion staples in Colorado include:

  • A light jacket
  • A sweater or shirt you can layer
  • Skirts/Dresses
  • Sports coats

You may find yourself “bundled” up one day and sweating the next. Whether it is March or May, spring in Colorado will keep you on your toes.

Don’t Sweat It

With constant weather changes, you’re likely to sweat, even if you dress in layers. For example, that off-white silk shirt you wore for a meeting earlier today may get pretty sweaty, particularly under your arms. Even if you use the old “lifting your arm and blasting the air conditioning to cool down” trick, it’s important to treat sweat stains sooner rather than later to prevent them from permanently damaging your clothing.
