The weather outside is…well, we can’t quite figure it out! One day it’s balmy, the other it’s sunny, with biting winds that rival the coldest days in December. And then there’s the whole spring showers thing to contend with. But despite the schizophrenic weather, there are just some things that every high-low fashion gal needs in her wardrobe to transition into spring with ease.
This year, we narrowed the list down to just seven pieces. Read now, shop later.
If you’re in the mood for a spring fashion deep dive, grab a silk scarf with a dizzying design of florals, colors, and graphic patterns. The best part? The oh-so-soft piece can punch up your handbag when tied around the handle or corral unruly hair.
Grab something that’s neutral in the front, and party in the back (or sides). If you’re feeling fancy, a satchel with a unique handle makes for a memorable street style moment. Bonus points goes to this bag style for holding all of your transitional weather accoutrement: a foldable umbrella, beanie, and commuter flats.
Move over, floral. The polka dot is the reigning pattern that has been spotted around every fashion blogger’s—and as of late, Beyonce’s—IG feed. If you’re not into polka dots, try art print blouses or tops with whimsical prints, like hot air balloons, forest animals, or Picasso-inspired designs.
If there’s one thing that screams you’re ready for warmer weather, it’s sunglasses with a dose of cool. Whether it’s oversized round frames, mirrored aviators, or colored lenses, opt for a beautiful pair that shields your peepers from UV rays without sacrificing style.
Pick a pair with a versatile fit and style, one that elevates your work day ensemble when topped with a blazer, and goes equally well with your vintage band tee when you’re running weekend errands.
The classic khaki is a tried and true favorite, but this year, why not get a style that goes the extra fashion mile? Think: metallic, PVC, or a coat in ultraviolet.
Bring out your inner child and play with primary colors. We love this minion-inspired pair, which adds a healthy dose of panache to even the most basic outfits.
