Is it just me or was winter extremely long this year? I can’t be the only one who felt like it was never going to end, right? Well, now that Spring has finally sprung we need to talk: about fashion! It’s time to push those heavy sweatpants and sweatshirts to the back of the closet and break out the spring essentials.
But, what are the essentials? Here are 5 items to add to your wardrobe this spring, where you can pick them up; and of course, all at a discounted price!
5 Key Items To Add To Your Wardrobe This Spring
1) The Jean Jacket
Every woman should have a jean jacket in her closet. This essential item will never go out of style and can be worn during any season. Use the jean jacket to dress up a plain outfit like a white tee-shirt and leggings; or to dress down a formal look like a cocktail dress and heels. Wear it over your workout clothes before the gym, then throw it over your work outfit for an easy daytime casual look.
Wear to buy: Target ($29.99-$40) or Marshall’s (around $20)
2) The Maxi Dress
A maxi dress is the perfect item for any occasion, looks great on all body types and with limited washing, can last for years. Although you can pick up a maxi dress in all types of styles and patterns, I suggest buying a dark blue or black version. Pair it with a light scarf for a casual look or a jean jacket or leather jacket for a night out. Roll this item up and throw it in your gym bag for a quick, comfy and stylish after workout outfit.
Wear to buy: Old Navy ($23-$40) or T.J. Maxx ($17-$40)
3) Black Leggings
Probably the most comfortable item any woman can own is a pair of leggings. Over the years, leggings have replaced the everyday pant for a lot of women; which may or may not be a good thing, but I digress – regardless of the popularity of this comfortable item and the hundreds of design options, every woman should own a solid black pair and not have to pay a fortune for them.
Wear to buy: Walmart ($5-$20)
4) The Plaid Shirt
There are so many ways to wear the plaid shirt! This, much like the jean jacket, is a statement piece that will never go out of style. Pair this item with a nice pair of white jeans and a tank top for a casual spring look or wrap it around your waist for a more fashionable look. Dress up your workout outfit for a cute on the way to the gym look.
Wear to buy: American Eagle Outfitters ($18-$23)
5) Plain Shoes
What do I mean by plain? Think Tom’s, Converse or Keds. A simple pair of flat shoes can be paired with any outfit and are easy to maintain. Pair these shoes with any of the above items for a casual, yet fashionable look.
Wear to buy: Famous Footwear ($35-$55) or Toms ($49) or DSW ($40)
