It’s right around the corner! Baby birds are chirping, fresh flowers are blooming, and fashion girls everywhere are breaking out the wardrobe essentials that they stowed away for the winter. In just a couple of days, we’ll finally welcome the season we’ve been desperately awaiting for so long – spring!
And if you’re on the hunt for a way to revamp your look before it officially arrives, then you’ve definitely come to the right place. On this week’s edition of Friday Faves, we’re sharing 7 springtime style essentials that you’ll need to add to your collection if you want to look your best this season.
One of the simplest ways to get a handle on your spring style is to start with a straw purse – and this seasonal update on the STAUD signature moon bag is the perfect option. With straw rattan woven along each curve of its structured silhouette, we guarantee that it’ll carry you stylishly through spring and straight into summer. Whether you’re going to brunch with your babes, or on a stroll through the park on a sunny day, you’ll definitely want this bag by your side.
2. Mini Skirts
Don’t be afraid to show off a little leg! This season, we’ll be seeing fashion lovers everywhere stepping out in shorter styles, like this mini skirt from Nasty Gal. We loved this one in particular because it’s not only offered in a lovely lavender, but it’s also topped off with a pretty checkered print, which are both so perfect for spring. One foolproof way to step up your style game this season is to opt for pastel shades and playful patterns just like these.
Speaking of patterns that are ideal for spring, we simply can’t get over gingham lately. That’s why when we saw this super luxe tank top from Balmain, it immediately moved to the top of our wishlists. We knew that it would give us the perfect opportunity to lose the loungewear and slip into something that feels much more spring forward. Not only will it’s stretchy jacquard knit fabric keep you feeling comfy, but it’ll also flatter your figure from every single angle. So if you’re looking for a style that’ll keep you looking good all season long, then this is the one to splurge on!
If there’s one pair of shoes that you definitely need to add to your rotation right now, it’s an espadrille sandal. This spring, we’re obsessing over this splurge-worthy pair from Valentino Garavani. When you combine their soft pink leather straps, their open round toe design and their signature pyramid studs, you get both a cute pair of shoes and the perfect way to add a little spring to your step all season long (pun intended!)
It’s no secret, babes. If there’s one trend we saw (and loved) so much during Fashion Week, it was the statement collar. And now that there’s a new season on the horizon, we’re looking forward to finding lots of new ways to work this playful piece into our wardrobes. If you’re a fan of this trend too, you’ll definitely want to get your hands on a detachable collar as versatile as this one from ASOS. Not only will it provide you with an endless number of outfit combinations, but you can also use it to elevate anything from a casual sweatshirt to a pretty blouse. Trust us when we say that this accessory is so chic, it’ll help you create stunning springtime fits for many years to come.
6. Denim Jacket
We know first hand that spring weather can be pretty unpredictable, which is why we wanted to share a stylish way to stay warm when the weather takes a turn for the worst. One piece that we can always count on to keep us looking cool when the temperature gets cooler is a denim jacket. Of course, there are so many styles out there, but we’re currently loving this one from The Gap. The classic blue denim adds a level of versatility, while the oversized silhouette gives it a fashion-forward feel, making it the perfect wardrobe staple to add to your collection right now.
7. Cream Blush
Now that you’ve got your spring style sorted, you’ll want to get your makeup look locked down. This season, we’re simplifying and streamlining our routine by picking products that were formulated with a “less is more” approach. That’s why when we saw this creamy lip and cheek duo from lilah b., it was practically love at first sight. We adore the fact that it was created with a blendable and buildable formula, which will allow for quick and easy application. Plus, it’s also enriched with aloe, agar, and other moisturizing botanicals which will leave your skin with a healthy glow all spring long.
Happy Spring, babes! We’re wishing you a season filled with so many moments of love and joy!
