Style Essentials: Spring 2011

A billowy peasant blouse, a pleated maxi skirt, a fresh slick of bold nail color—these are just some of the things I am coveting this spring. My strategy for tackling my spring wishlist? While many of my current fashion obsessions can be attributed to the spring runways—for instance, ever since I saw the spring Marc Jacobs collection, I have been looking for the perfect YSL-inspired peasant blouse—I also plan to refresh the essentials in my wardrobe.

Accordingly, my first point of order this spring is to swap out my skinny denim for a perfect pair of wide-leg jeans—not only will this add a much-needed 1970s-inspired twist to my wardrobe, but wide-leg jeans are super-flattering. Next, I plan to inject my closet with a heavy dose of color in the form of bright heels, neon accessories, strapless dresses, and nail polish. As you can see, I am leaning towards sunny yellow and tangerine hues this spring, although any bold and bright color has a place in my closet this season. Finally, I am filling out my closet with textured pieces such as a pleated maxi skirt, a ruffled mini skirt, and a lace mini dress. All of these pieces add interesting details to my wardrobe and will last season after season. On that note, I am thrilled to present my spring Style Essentials—I hope you love them as much as I do, and I’d love to hear what you are coveting in the comments section below.
