Outfit Formula #1
COLOR CARDIGAN + WHITE TOP+ LIGHT WASH JEANS + TAUPE SHOES
For the first outfit formula I wearing everything from my closet however the cardigan from H&M is new. Unfortunately, it’s showing as sold out online but you may be able to find it in-store. Here’s a similar pink cardigan. This outfit is a perfect example of if you have a solid foundation, adding one simple piece can change the whole look.
Outfit formula #2
TRENCH COAT + PRINTED BLOUSE + WHITE BOTTOMS + TAUPE SHOES
If you’ve been following me then you know that white jeans are a year-round staple in my closet however I’m excited to pair them up with some lighter pieces of clothes like this awesome floral top from J.Crew Factory. Again, I’m using my closet staples foundation of white bottoms, my taupe shoes and then something fun and new creating a great spring look. Layers are crucial for spring’s unpredictable weather so I’m going to finish off this look with a classic trench which is not only a great closet staple but also a great investment piece. My white jeans are from J.Crew Factory, however, there are only a few sizes left. Here is a similar pair from Old Navy.
Outfit formula #3
DENIM JACKET + STRIPED TOP + OLIVE BOTTOMS + WHITE SNEAKERS OR METALLIC SHOES
I’m a sucker for stripes so I paired them up with some olive jeans, my favorite denim jacket, and added some new white kicks with some fun metallic embellishments on them for spring. The best part is as the day warms up I can easily remove my jacket and still feel like a I have complete look on.
outfit Formula #4
NEUTRAL CARDIGAN + NEUTRAL PRINTED TOP + DARK WASH JEANS + WHITE SNEAKERS OR METALLIC SHOES
I have to say this look does combine a few new pieces I bought for the spring, but I’ll be able to carry them through to summer, and let’s be honest, they are pretty classic so I’m sure I’ll be wearing them for a while. While leopard is a classic in my book it’s still having its moment. That’s why so I got this light and airy leopard print top from J.Crew Factory. I then paired it with this cardigan from H&M. It’s the same style as the pink one from above. I finished it off with my metallic embellished white sneakers.
Outfit Formula #5
DENIM JACKET + SOLID TOP + CHINOS + SNAKE PRINT SHOES
I know what you’re thinking, chinos, really? I was the same way but once I found this pair from J.Crew Factory and they turned out to be a ‘heck yes,’ I realized all the different outfit possibilities it opened up. Plus it’s a great alternative to denim. For this formula, I paired up a few closet staples like snake print slip-ons and my denim jacket then added in a simple solid tee. Finally, I had a little fun sprinkling in some accessories to finish off the look.
