save vs splurge spring closet essentials

Happy Wednesday, babes! With the season’s change, it’s natural to desire a closet refresh. I’ve touched on several closet basics in last week’s Spring capsule wardrobe, and thought to topic 5 of them today – you’ll have options to save vs. splurge this season! I often will save on several just to splurge on my favorites, anyone else? Let’s get to it!

ONE | white tee | I know this is a very simple piece, but it truly is essential year round. Having a crisp white tee to wear alone with a contrasting accessory or under jackets and cardigans is a must. I prefer a v-neck or scoop neck, tho there are others you may have preference in. The option to splurge on a designer brand or save is always available.

TWO | white jeans | This is the pant of the season. You’ll see this essential paired with florals, stripes, pastels, neutrals and brights. I like to think of this staple as Spring’s wingman. It’s always on hand, to help showcase the colors and prints of the season. This season it was a bit tricky finding a good pair I felt comfortable in, and one with absolutely no visual see thru. In this season’s capsule, I shared this affordable pair, as they check off all reqs.

THREE | Cropped denim | This essential can easily coincide with the white denim mentioned above. Grab a cropped distressed pair such as this, and have ability to wear them with sandals and open toed booties. Many other options are currently on trend and prove a great transition piece into Summer. I’ve shared a few fit and style options below.

FOUR | lightweight jacket | It’s understood that there are several in this category to choose from. I included both the denim and utility in the Spring capsule, tho I’ll add an optional trench coat to the mix. Depending on where you live, you can choose what you feel most valuable and functional.

FIVE | sandal | Oh man, if I could choose one essential I am indecisive on, it’s shoes – and Spring shoes? There’s a plethora of options. Depending on where you live, the thought of sandals may be in hindsight right about now. Tho accessorizing my Spring ensemble with a sandal, wedge, heel or even an open toed bootie is something I look forward to each Spring, no matter the temp!
