the new spring closet staples + how to style them

IMG_0079.PNG

Happy Thursday, you guys! Last night, I did a fun training webinar with Jenna Kutcher and I'm still feeling super inspired and creative from it today. What a great way to start the new season, right? Speaking of spring and feeling creative---do you feel like you're dying to refresh your wardrobe a little bit after that dreadful winter? I am! There are a couple of pieces I consider 'new closet staples' for spring. For the most part, they're pretty classic but can be styled to suit many different personal looks.

the staples

TOPS

white everlane tee | a quality, white supima cotton  t-shirt is a closet must-have for any season and this spring is the perfect time to upgrade yours. 

retro, gathered top | these tops are perfect for spring/summer as they conjure images of old hollywood starlets on the beach in the midcentury.

slouchy sweater | for a cozy, feminine look, invest in a slouchy sweater made of a light material, preferably with a cute back detail like a keyhole or bow. 

BOTTOMS

straight-leg blue jeans | the go-to style of denim these days is a slightly cropped, straight leg jean in a light to medium wash to give it a 90s vibe.

white mini-skirt | switch up your usual denim mini-skirt with a white version with a rough, frayed hem.

track pants | they're comfortable, sporty, and a staple for a slightly edgy, street style inspired look.

SHOES

slip-on loafers | slip-on loafers aren't going anywhere just yet, so pick up a pair in black, brown, white, and/or a statement color like blush pink or mint green.

white sneakers | they're incredibly versatile, make your legs look more tan, and give any outfit a fresh, young vibe.

tan ankle boots | perhaps the easiest to dress both up and down, a pair of tan ankle boots are a must and I highly recommend the Dicker boot from Isabel Marant.

ACCESSORIES

basket bag | even though it was the standout bag trend of last summer, the basket bag is back in full swing this season and will give your look a charming, Riviera vibe.

delicate bralette | whether it shows through your top or not, a beautiful, delicate bralette is a crucial building block to the perfect laid-back, spring wardrobe.

sculptural earrings | this version of the statement earring relies more on texture and shape than on pops of color than the typical tassel version you see everywhere.
