If you are going to buy a top this spring, make it a bold floral blouse like Zara’s Printed Shirt ($40). While spring is always a great time to introduce floral prints into the mix, this season the prints are bigger and bolder than ever before. This blouse is the perfect way to elevate your outfit from simple to stand-out in one easy step.
If you are going to buy a bag this spring, make it a woven bag like Marc by Marc Jacobs’s Stripey Straw Jane’s Friend Elaine Bag ($258). While woven accessories are having a moment right now, there is more to love about this bag than just its timeliness. Not only is the size perfect for sunny days when you don’t want to be weighed down, but the striped pattern definitely catches the eye.
If you are going to buy a full outfit this spring, make it a short suit like Robert Rodriguez’s Piped Jacket ($395) and Shorts ($245). This is such an unexpected and fresh look that you are certainly to be the most fashion-forward girl in any room you walk into. Wear yours with a pair of strappy sandals and you have an outfit that easily transitions from day to night.
If you are going to buy a bottom this spring, make it a pair of printed pants like Haute Hippie’s Polka Dot-Print Wide-Leg Silk Pants ($325). Printed pants are perfect for the girl-on-the-go. On your off-duty days, you can pair them with a silk tank top and flat sandals; for formal occasions, you can dress them up with a blouse and killer heels; and for everything in-between, you can mix and match.
If you are going to buy a piece of jewelry this spring, make it a statement earring like Oscar de la Renta’s 24-Karat Gold-Plated Seaglass Clip Earrings ($290). There is a reason they are called statement reasons—they make a statement. With that said, we suggest you pick a pair that will be the life of your outfit—whether you are wearing a little black dress or simply a blouse and jeans.
If you are going to buy a dress this spring, make it a pastel dress like TFNC’s Sleeveless Cowl Back Wrap Skirt Dress ($63). When warm weather arrives, a breezy dress is a go-to. Though any color will fly this spring, a pretty pastel hue is feminine and feels really fresh, especially after the darker colors of fall. Plus, when you opt for a minimalist palette, you can maximize your accessories!
If you are going to buy a shoe this spring, make it a pencil heel like J Crew’s Mona Leather Pumps ($198). The ladylike look is making a comeback and the pencil heel is a quick way to try the look yourself. Even better, this look can be interpreted any way you like—whether you choose a pencil heel in a bright color, a popping print, or a neat neutral.
