The start of spring is always exciting for many reasons: new blooms, warmer weather, and new spring fashions! It’s tempting to run to your favorite department store and pick up an entire new spring wardrobe, but that’s just not necessary – and not easy on your wallet. Here are some ways you can integrate basics that you can wear year ’round into your spring wardrobe, and save that extra dough for dining al fresco.
As I’m sure you’ve heard a million times, an LBD is a total wardrobe staple. It’s uber versatile not only because you can wear it year ’round, but also, it’s easy to make your go-to black dress look like a brand new dress by adding accessories. For springtime, pair your LBD with a floral scarf or cardigan and espadrilles.
It’s a common misconception that you can only wear white in the summer, but if you are a rule breaker (which I highly recommend in this scenario), and wore your white dress all winter long, more power to you! In order to keep your dress fresh for spring – and to switch it up so you don’t get tired of it – I recommend pairing a white dress with a fun colorful purse and classic tan wedges.
Most of us are pretty much required to have sweaters during the winter in order to stay warm. But good news: you don’t have to put all of your sweaters away come spring. Investing in some cotton-blend sweaters is a great way to get more wear out of them because you can wear them all year long. For spring, pair your sweater with some distressed white jeans and a bright statement necklace.
Fact: women tend to hoard scarves but only wear 1 or 2 of them. So figure out which scarves you love for winter, pack those away for the season, and keep the lightweight scarves out for spring! Scarves can act as a beautiful accessory or a wrap to keep you warm on a chilly spring evening. Plus, nothing livens up your neutrals like a colorful accessory!
Tan booties are great for winter, in theory. But if you live in a place where winter is full of snow and sleet, they can get dirty – or ruined – really easily. In order to get more wear out of your favorite versatile booties, keep them out for spring! They pair perfectly with cropped pants and a v neck t-shirt.
