It seems to me that we’ve been waiting for warm weather for weeks and now it’s finally here! Say goodbye to heavy winter coats and hello to sundresses and shorts. Spring is the perfect season to create a new wardrobe for yourself and change your style! For me, I love cleaning out my fall/winter wardrobe and seeing the options I have for spring and summer. Keeping up with the current fashion trends is the perfect way to see what you want to add to your closet. I love to see what trend is rising up again and which is out the door. Following different influencers and stylists is a great way to see what you wanna wear for the spring season!
Here are some tips to spruce up your spring closet:
- A staple sundress
There is nothing I love more than a good sundress. It can be dressed up, dressed down and worn the way it is. This is a definite staple for your spring wardrobe. With the ever-changing weather, you never know how warm it might be. Pairing a flowy sundress with a light jacket can be the perfect spring look!
- A stylish button down
You can never go wrong with the button-down look. This is personally a favorite for me because of all the different ways it can be styled. An oversized button-down with a belt and loafers is perfect for a brunch date; dress it up with a blazer and heels for a night out! My advice is to stick with neutral colors for the button-down, as it’s already a bold piece itself.
- The switch from black to neutral blazer
A good blazer is something you need in your closet, always. This is the key to dressing up any outfit you wear. The holy trinity of blazers includes a black one, a leather one and a neutral tone. For the spring season, I suggest either a light brown or beige blazer. A blazer is an easy throw-on when running errands, going out to eat, or even just feeling good in your own skin. It’s a sophisticated and timeless piece of clothing that is a must-have in any season.
- Loafers or sandals
I have to say that I’ve become a huge fan of loafers over the past couple of months. Like the blazer, they are a timeless item you should have in your wardrobe. If it’s on the cooler side, you might want to opt for a cute pair of loafers instead of sandals or any open-toe shoe. Styled the right way, these loafers could make you look like an Upper East Side local. Now if it’s on the warmer side you could switch the loafers out for those sandals. I always say that a little heel never hurts, and it amps up your outfit in the perfect way.
- A light sweater or cardigan
Even though the weather is getting warmer, sometimes the breeze sneaks up on you. It’s always good to have a light sweater or cardigan on hand to throw on if it’s chilly. With sweaters comes the very popular “coastal grandmother” look and it’s vital you execute it the right way. My suggestion is a good pair of white linen pants and a light sweater either in shades of blue or beige. This is your perfect Martha’s Vineyard look that never goes out of style!
- The perfect trousers
Last but not least, you need a good pair of linen pants or trousers. This light and airy look will make you look and feel great. These are perfect for the days when it’s not too hot and not too cold. These can be styled with a plain cropped tee, a light sweater or an oversized blazer. I suggest sticking to neutral colors for this outfit, as it’s a simple and sophisticated look.
These six tips are guaranteed to spiff up your spring wardrobe and make you feel confident in your style!
