As we enter March this week, it’s almost time to pack up those gloves and winter coats. True, we were blessed with the mildest winter I can remember, but I’ve been ready for spring since November. Below, I show you ten wardrobe essentials that are on trend for spring. Not to break the bank, these pieces can be matched together and transition easily into summer and fall.
For a bold trend such as the colored pant, I’d recommend not maxing out your budget on these; H&M and Target offer a wide selection of colors. For an investment you can wear year to year, I’d suggest purchasing a pair of white denim, such as the DL1961 ankle jeans. Clockwise from top left: Days of Bold Pant ($80), H&M Ankle-Length Pant ($15), Latramoda Denim ($148), J.Crew Cafe Capri ($90), Free People Colored Cropped Denim ($98).
Pair with the above mentioned colored denim, white skirt, pencil skirt, or layer over a striped tank. From left to right, Anthropologie Swingy Chambray Tunic ($88), Ralph Lauren Chambray Patched Western Shirt ($90), Old Navy Utility Pocket Chambray Shirt ($27).
The maxi skirt is one of my favorite pieces for spring that easily transitions into summer and fall. Pair with a tank, flats, and a denim jacket for a casual look. Don’t to forget to accessorize! Clockwise from top left: Aerie Chiffon Maxi Skirt ($39), Asos Maxi Skirt in Sheer and Solid Stripe ($80), Hive and Honey Chevron Striped Maxi Skirt ($49), Stem Burnout Diagonal Stripe Maxi Skirt ($49).
Always the cheapest way to incorporate a seasonal trend into your style, the neon accessory this spring is no exception. Clockwise from top left: ASOS Fluro Skinny Belt ($11), F21 Neon Hint Bangle Set ($6), Gorjana Graham Leather Wrap Bracelet ($55), Marc by Marc Jacobs Neon Enamel Bracelet ($55), ASOS Canvas Contrast Handle Shopper ($40), Kate Spade Elina ($225), ASOS POW Ring ($11), Lacoste Watch ($95).
Not Your Basic Blazer
An easy way to add a pop of color to your basic wardrobe, and a great way to move from day to night with a LBD or cropped pant. From left to right: RD Style Pop Color Blazer ($89), H&M Striped Blazer ($49), Tinley Road Draped Blazer ($69).
Despite that fact that celebs made this a fave on the red carpet this season, this is one spring trend that will fit into your wardrobe season after season. Clockwise from top left: F21 Chiffon Dolman Blouse ($20), T by Alexander Wang Semi-Sheer Ribbed Jersey ($54), F21 Wayfarer Sunglasses ($6), J.Crew Eden Cardigan ($60), Wyatt Dress ($63).
As this trend trickled down to America’s mainstream malls, you can snag a tribal print piece at any price. Pair with something classic, like a basic denim or white. From left to right: Express Aztec Graphic Shirt ($40), Aerie Tribal Print Top ($40), Windsor Zig Zag Tribal Print Mini Skirt ($20).
Colorblocking can be used for more than just outfits! It’s a fun way to spice up a neutral outfit for a party, wedding, or work event. Clockwise from top left: Marc Fisher Tumble Pumps ($79), Jessica Simpson Cathi ($99), Nine & Co. Neon Colorblock Ballet Flats ($30), Guess Kringana Platforms ($120).
Similar to the midi dress, the high-low dress brings a hint of elegance to an otherwise simple dress. Dress it up or down with accessories. From left to right: Free People Hi-Lo Color Block Dress ($148), BCBGMAXAZRIA Dress ($83), F21 Burnout High-Low Tank Dress ($20), Hive and Honey High Low Midi Dress ($54).
