Easily transition into spring by following our list of the top five spring essentials for surviving the months ahead. We have got you covered from head-to-toe. Just read on for an effortless and affordable spring shopping trip.
1) Springy Floral Dress
Spring break, Easter, festivals, and brunches; simply put, all of these springtime occasions call for a pretty floral dress. Update your closet collection with something both flirty and on-trend, like our to-die-for Cotton Candy LA Ditsy Slit Lilac Slip Dress. Ideal for a day or night look, style it with everything from a denim jacket and white sneakers, to dangle earrings and strappy heels. No matter how you wear it, this mini dress will be a crowd-pleaser.
The wear-with-everything shoe, a classic slip-on mule will elevate all of your spring looks with ease and comfort (what is better than that?!). Get into the warm-weather mindset by opting for this straw pair, our Bamboo Woven Womens Natural Mules, perfect for wearing for work or play. Their natural woven construction exudes vacay-vibes, with perforated cutouts to keep you cool, and a flat silhouette for relaxed, all-day wearability.
3) Denim Shorts
The spring weather is not always perfect. The sun shines one day, then the rain pours the next, and sometimes it is a mix of both (at least here, in SoCal). However, it does bring the heat on occasion, which means baring some skin to get that golden glow. On sunny beach days, layer a pair of classic blue denim shorts over your swimsuit, styled with a cute and effortless tee and slide sandals. Hit the beach then grab a sunset bite with your girls without skipping a beat! For those cooler days, throw on a fuzzy sweater and booties with your jean shorts, a look for the weekend that is both stylish and effortless. Our current favorite denim shorts? The Free People Sequoia Womens Denim Shorts, a distressed style with a longer, relaxed fit for a modern feel.
4) Cozy Cardigan
As we mentioned, you still have to bundle up on occasion this season, especially on cold evenings or blustery days. Stay warm the trendy way in a knit cardigan. With every cool girl being spotted in an easy-chic cardi, it is your turn to snag one for your own wardrobe. The style is lightweight enough to layer over a dress or tank on a cloudy, in-between day, yet warm enough to keep you cozy during chilly spring nights. A few of our favorites include the O’Neill Yvonne Womens Cardigan, the West Of Melrose Get To The Bottom Of It Rib Button Womens Black Cardigan, and the West Of Melrose Fuzzy Feelings Knit Button Front Taupe Womens Cardigan.
5) Overnight Bag
Pack your bags, it’s vacation season! Spring break, festivals, weekend trips, and exotic locales, here you come! With all of the fun and adventurous trips you have planned, you are definitely in need of a new travel bag. Higher temperatures means your packing will be lighter, so a duffel bag will suit you just perfectly this season. That being said, the Herschel Supply Co. Novel Black & Tan Duffel Bag is the best travel companion. This sizable weekend bag features plenty of packing storage, a shoe compartment, and an extra storage sleeve. Toss your new and loved items in and get on your way (just don’t forget your toothbrush!).
