Winter has been around long enough and, thankfully, spring is making its approach. With the warmer weather comes a change in fashion, but that doesn’t mean you have to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe. Certain strategic pieces could make all the difference in taking your outfits to the next level. You don’t even necessarily have to spend a lot of money. Just because they’re must-haves doesn’t mean must-break-the-bank. The following are seven fashion essentials that you’ll definitely want to stock up on this spring.
Floral dress or skirt
Spring is all about florals, and while there are a multitude of ways to sport the pattern, a dress or skirt is the way to go for the season. It’s finally time to shed those heavy winter layers and opt for lighter ensembles. Floral-patterned dresses and skirts are also ideal for professional and personal settings and can easily go from day to night with just a few minor adjustments.
A white t-shirt is an absolute must-have for spring. It can go with anything whether you’re wearing jeans, a skirt, leggings, yoga pants, dress pants, etc. You can even wear it under certain dresses. Considering how easily white t-shirts can get stained whether it’s underneath the arms or after eating your favorite meal, it’s best to be prepared by keeping a few in your closet. Don’t forget to carry a stain remover pen around with you in the instance that any minor stains occur.
A great pair of jeans
There is not one person who doesn’t look great in jeans. They’re comfortable, look fabulous on everyone, come in a slew of different styles, textures, and colors, and they can go with practically everything. Even when you’re in a rush, throw on a pair of jeans, a pair of ballet flats, and a shirt you love and you’re good to go. Dress them up or down but jeans are a must-have fashion pick for spring.
If you’ve spent all winter watching your skin get pale and you’re in the mood for a change, then a fake tan might be just what you’re looking for. From airbrush tanning to self tanning products you can use at home, there are numerous options that you can use to get the fake tan you desire in spring without laying out in the sun or going in a tanning bed. Note that even with a fake tan it’s vital to wear sunscreen. There are many who opt to use it only in summer but it should actually be used year-round. Put it on about 30-minutes before you’re set to head outdoors and every couple of hours thereafter to ensure you protect your skin from UV rays.
Ballet flats are simply wonderful. From the casual to the dressy, they come in so many designs and colors so they can be worn with an assortment of items in your closet. If you’re wearing an outfit that you feel is too plain and boring, opting for ballet flats in a funky pattern can help breathe new life into it. Pair them with dresses, jeans, or almost any outfit in between and they’re sure to help get you where you need to go in style and comfort.
A versatile watch
Yes, there’s a clock on your phone, but for those who love watches, it’s so much more than a way to tell time. It’s a statement piece, an accessory that completes an outfit, and maybe it’s even a treasured family heirloom that’s being passed from one generation to the next. As versatile as they are, they can complement a variety of outfits. From budget-friendly to luxury watches, each has their own special gorgeous style. It’s certainly an essential you’ll want for spring.
A spring tote
Once the warmer weather comes around, you’re likely going to be spending more time outdoors, and what better way to transport all your necessary items than via an irresistible spring tote? To ring in spring, consider one in a pale hue such as blue, beige, or pink, or in a fun floral or striped print. If you want to show off your bold and spunky side, opt for neon which adds a pop of vibrant color that can take you right into summer. Regardless of what you choose, make sure that it really adds something special to your wardrobe.
The world can be messy and complex, but your fashion choices don’t need to be. When you build up your wardrobe with fashion essentials and finish it off with an assortment of other clothing pieces you love, you set yourself up for fashion success regardless of the season. Don’t hesitate to take time to find the spring fashion essentials that you truly adore. Choose carefully and they can stay with you and stand up to constant wear year-after-year.
