Spring has finally sprung, and it’s about time you bring your spring cleaning enthusiasm to the confines of your closet. One of the best parts about spring is undeniably the fun fashion, so if you haven’t already, you need to pack away those winter clothes and bring out the warmer-weather garments.
I’m sure you have all kinds of beautiful spring clothes to wear this season, but treating yourself to a couple new items definitely won’t hurt! Especially if you want to update your wardrobe to be season-appropriate, the best way to go about it is to invest in a couple trending items that will go a long way when mixed in with your existing spring wardrobe. Mixing the new in with the old is a savvy way to create a plethora of new outfit combinations without breaking the bank. It’s all about balance.
So if you’re needing to update your wardrobe to reflect the spring styles, look no further. I’ve compiled some of the best items you can buy to add into your spring ensembles so that you can create endlessly fresh spring outfits.
THE QUINTESSENTIAL PASTELS
To instantly fast-track your wardrobe to be a springtime vision of style, you’ve got to give in to at least one of the season’s staples pointed out by HuffPo: either florals or pastels. If I had to choose, I’d say that pastels are a bit less overdone, so if you want to take the route less traveled, try a pretty pink top or a classic light blue shirt. Pairing a pastel with some of your fall bottoms will give them a whole new look, allowing you to reuse some of your “unseasonal” styles.
We all know that spring is the time of year that we can finally stop hiding our feet and flaunt those pedicures, so it’s only right that you treat yourself to a pair of trendy sandals that will carry you through the season, bringing a fresh vibe to last year’s looks. As Lyst points out, look for “embellished sandals” to bring a little bling into your life, and if you’re really feeling like a trendsetter, you’ve got to get a pair of lace-ups this year.
A COLORFUL BAG
One of the best ways to add a splash of color into your Spring wardrobe is through your bag! The stores are already filled with lots of options for beautiful pastel and bright colored totes and purses, you can also find some great ones at the thrift store. If you know me, you know that if you looked in my closet, you will find one bag in black and ten in all shades of a rainbow. I love me some color!
Making your wardrobe work for a variety of weather types is a lot easier than it sounds. All it takes is a little creativity. You don’t have to go out and buy an entire new closet’s worth of clothes to feel like you’re properly dressing for spring; just find those key pieces that can you can add into existing outfits to update your look.
