Basics Facelift: Spring Essentials

Spring is the perfect time to freshen up those tanks, denim, or handbags that have been used and abused during the winter months. The best thing about basics is that they are so easy to pair with each other or layer with statement pieces. I find myself wearing all my basics together on the weekend when I really do not feel like putting an outfit together, yet still want to look stylish. For your convenience, I have put together a list of essentials that every girl needs before we get further into spring!

T-shirts and Tanks: Layering pieces are always an essential. Getting those fresh, clean white tees is much more beneficial to get now so that once summer comes, there is no need to worry about restocking the basics in your wardrobe.

Denim: While denim is an easy item to transition between seasons, it is always nice to do a little revamp. Use this time to add in some different denim that your closet is lacking. Bootcut and flare is coming back and high wasted is here to stay. Brands are also keeping up with that distressed look, but now it is subtler. So, adding a straight leg with some distressing on the end of a jean is perfect for not only spring but for those cool summer nights as well.

Denim Jacket: The denim jacket will never die, especially for us women in Michigan. It is an essential for everyone because you can throw it over your shoulders, pair it with a dress, or even make a complete denim look with denim on top and denim on the bottom. This spring, maybe add a denim jacket that has something different about it (lace, studs, distressing). Don’t know how to layer your basics? The denim jacket is that answer to that problem. Take a tank, pair it with a legging or cute denim, and then throw your denim jacket on…BAM perfect basic, cute outfit.

Dress: You always should have a go-to-dress to just throw on if you have no idea what to wear that day. T-shirt dresses are a big deal because they are simple and not tight so there is never an issue with feeling uncomfortable. Boho chic is going to be a big trend this spring, so even investing in a great free flowing lace dress or a floral patterned lose fitted dress will be a perfect basic to have in your closet.

Sandal: You can’t have a cute little dress without an even cuter pair of sandals! Strappy sandals, lace-up sandals, or an easy slip on wedged sandal in a neutral color is going to be your spring go-to shoe. Spring and summer is when you can stop wearing so much black and dark grey and start wearing those yummy chestnut browns and sandy beiges.

Crossbody Handbag: While out and about, no one likes struggling with their entire “luggage” that they carry around. Having a cute, lightweight crossbody is what will make your spring lifestyle a lot easier.
