It’s hard to keep up with the trends that come off the runways and downright impossible (or just plain insane) to get your hands on every piece. Even if you had the means, there just aren’t enough days in a season to wear all of the things you would want. So we’ve narrowed it down for you with these 5 essential pieces for spring. Whether you’re just trying out the trends or embracing them with open arms, these 5 essentials are where you should start.
1. Sporty bomber jacket
Sporty is in this spring and if you’re not convinced, the silk bomber jackets that have been popping up in every store from Marc Jacobs to H&M should clue you in. Pair it with jeans for your go-to jacket of the season or dress it up with heels and a skirt. Either way, you’re sure to look fab.
2. High heeled mule
The high-heeled mule is no longer just for strippers. In luxurious leather and with impeccable design, this is the shoe to have this spring. We’ve already given you our favorites, but here’s one more: this gorgeous wedge mule by Zara. Wear them with loose trousers or a shift dress and watch your girlfriends go green with envy.
3. Metallic pencil skirt
Lanvin and Gucci brought metallic lame materials back this spring and they are hotter than ever. If you’re not sure which piece to get, we suggest a pencil skirt. The classic lines mean it’s versatile enough for the office and date night but the metallic materials mean you’re the one everyone will be looking at.
4. Designer visor
Marni stole the runways with the revival of this great accessory. Stay away from anything in terry cloth or with a gold brand embroidered in the front. Keep it classy by going designer on this one and remember, everyone can still seen your hair so don’t pull it all up in a messy bun – rock spring’s clean hair styles instead.
5. Metallic clutch
The clean lines of a clutch meet the hot metallic trend of the season. A clutch keeps just what’s essential and will complement all of your spring outfits. Big or small, loud or subtle, we think you’ll find one that suits your style just right.
The best part of these essentials? You can wear them all at once in done fab outfit or you can wear them separately to keep the fashion going all season long. Think we’ve left something out? Let us know!
