The signs of spring are in the air. The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and the inground pool cover will soon be removed! Time to put away the winter wardrobe and think spring clothes! Here are some spring staples guaranteed to warm up your wardrobe.
A white tuxedo jacket will be a spring standout in a sea of neutrals. Dress it up by pairing it with an evening gown or go casual with jeans and a T-shirt. White suits are also emerging as a fresh way to usher in the spring season.
Add some spark to an otherwise ordinary outfit with a scarf in a vibrant color or pattern. You can also use it to mix prints—another popular spring trend.
A pleated skirt is a must-have as the weather warms. Try it with a basic T-shirt or tank top in black, white, or gray, with a denim jacket to finish the look.
A polka dot blouse can be worn to the office with a pencil skirt or trousers, or paired with jeans for date night. Wear it alone or under a crewneck sweater.
Add a top with an asymmetrical neckline to liven up your repertoire. This sexy silhouette will twist elegantly around your collarbone before wrapping around your neck and draping across your shoulder. Simply gorgeous!
You can wear the polka dot shirt or asymmetrical top with a dark denim set. It’s an alternative to your spring light wash jeans if you want to dress up your denim a bit.
Another spring essential to upgrade your wardrobe is an embellished jacket. Wear it with colored jeans, capris, a miniskirt, or a beautiful floral dress. Versatility is key this spring.
Everyone should have a pair of eye-catching heels in their closet to wear with almost anything in your closet—colored jeggings, slim pants, skirts, and your favorite LBD.
If you need a break from those gorgeous stilettoes, choose some decorated flats. Sport them with trousers, jeans, skirts, or even cocktail dresses.
When thinking about your most essential spring wardrobe pieces, don’t forget about jewelry. A bold cuff will accent those spring staples, especially when paired with a short- or three-quarter sleeve shirt. A statement necklace will also pack a powerful punch, with this spring’s version boasting darker metals with just a hint of color that won’t overpower your office wardrobe while also complementing your evening wear.
A bright bag is also a necessity this spring. Choose one that will complement spring pastels, brights, or neutrals. However, don’t “match” it; that would be too much! Another versatile bag is the fanny pack—an additional spring mainstay. They range from sporty to dressy, in an array of styles.
Lavender is emerging as the color of spring this year, as an alternative to the ever-popular pink. It is being incorporated into knits, suits, and formal wear. Pick up your favorite essential in this soft hue.
Adding some of these staples to your daily wear is a fun, exciting way to usher in the warmer weather. Think Spring!
