Dressing for spring doesn't have to be difficult. You don't have to go and get a new wardrobe every time spring rolls around. Keep your spring wardrobe fresh with a few of these essentials that will tie your look together.
The Denim Jacket
Get rid of that winter coat and swap it out for a denim jacket. The denim jacket truly never goes out of style. It looks great over a floral print dress or a T-shirt and jeans. It can take your dressy items and make them look a little more casual.
You should also use a denim jacket for layering on cold days. It looks great with everything from a button-down shirt to a light sweater. When wearing a denim jacket, don't be afraid to add a pop of color to your look.
The white T-shirt is a must for spring. It's a great essential because it goes with everything in your wardrobe. You can wear it under cardigans, jackets, and blazers. You should get one in a v-neck or a scoop neck, but you may also want to try the boat neck style.
Choose a neckline that best flatters your face shape. If you have a white T-shirt that's worn out, then it's time to upgrade.
The Trench Coat
The trench coat is another classic. It's perfect to wear on rainy days. It's on everyone's spring essentials list for that reason alone. But if you don't like wearing a trench coat, you may like wearing an anorak, raincoat, or a military jacket.
Straight Leg Jeans
Jeans get lighter and crisper for the spring. You have many options such as white jeans, pastel colored jeans, and light wash jeans. Choose a pair of jeans that flatter your body but is thick enough so that you can't see through it. An ankle fit jean is the best look, especially when transitioning into summer.
You also can't go wrong with boyfriend jeans and cropped jeans. While the skinny jean is still popular, it's a jean that's mostly worn in the fall and winter with boots. A cropped or ankle-length jean gives you the option to wear it with sandals, espadrilles, sneakers, and boat shoes.
Springtime calls for many events such as weddings, Easter lunches, baby showers, and garden parties. You'll want a dress that's as versatile as the event that comes up. Choose one in a soft feminine color such as periwinkle or lavender. But you want to choose one that you can wear time and time again. You can never go wrong with the LBD, for instance.
You should decide which pieces you want to add to your wardrobe. Choose items that fit your personality, lifestyle, and wardrobe needs.
