The east coast has gotten an early burst of spring (hooray!) and I’m already thinking about what to add to my wardrobe and what I want to wear this spring. I thought I’d share a few great pieces in spring worthy colors you should consider adding to your closet this spring.
Just one or two new pieces can add all sorts of possibilities to your daily style. As a color addict, these four items are at the top of my my list for my spring wardrobe refresh.
My scarf collection is constantly growing and I love light gauzy scarves for spring. Neon is also going to be huge this spring and summer and if you’re terrified of the bright trend I say go for it in a playful accessory like this open weave scarf in neon green (above, left) from Urban Outfitters ($24) Use it to brighten up your neutrals, to add some pop to a khaki or black coat, or pair it with a blazer and jeans for a bit of a fun in your wardrobe.
In high school I remember having 32 pairs of jeans in every color of the rainbow. I am so happy when a trend I love makes a comeback and I can wear it again as an adult. You’ll find colorful denim in almost every store this spring, like this fab fuchsia pair of lightweight always skinny skimmer jeans from the Gap ($69.95).
On my list for favorite colors to wear in denim:
• Magenta – (aka fuchsia) would pair beautifully with neutrals.
• Kelly green – (my favorite color of all) would look awesome with navy, yellow, white or a bold floral print on top.
• Cobalt blue – is more versatile than you think. Pair it with highlighter yellow if you want to be bold or black and red to be a bit more subtle.
A fantastic lightweight coat
I’ve talked about how you should invest in a great trench coat as a transitional piece in your closet, but I also think picking up a bolder coat, in color and/or print, is fun too.
And while I love bold prints, I also love classics too and nothing is more classic (and bold!) than navy and white polka dots. It’s a great print to buy when you’re easing your way into prints. I’m in love with this double-breasted polka dot coat ($39.99) from Target.
It’s perfect for a rainy day or when there’s a chill in the air on your way to work. Added bonus, the navy and white will look great with jeans and even more playful and fun with a red or yellow dress.
The older I get the less inclined I am to wear stilettos (much to my husband’s disappointment). I’m loving that Oxfords and loafers are still on trend and look fresh and cute with flirty spring dresses and socks. I’m also about shoes with fun and quirky details like neon bright soles! These Steve Madden Jazie Oxfords ($63.89) are fun with their surprising burst of color, and there are neon versions too!
