Whether you’re already experiencing some springlike weather or are still deep in the grip of winter, it’s a good time to assess and update your transitional season wardrobe, as spring collections have begun hitting the shelves. It’s been my experience in the past couple of years that retailers don’t stock deeply for this season, and some of the best spring styles can sell out quickly.
A lightweight sweater is a spring must-have for me. V-necks have been hard to come by the past few seasons, so when I spied this one, I ordered. It’s a really lovely piece with a flattering cut. This “blue steel” color is a winner, neutral enough to pair with a lot of other colors, and very pretty as a color accent.
And how great would this necklace look with that sweater?
Or this bracelet? They’re both from the new “Madeleine” collection from French Kande. Gorgeous!
While this sweater has some merino wool in the blend, it’s lightweight and perfect for cool-to-mild days. A striped sweater with a v-neck is rarer than hens’ teeth (and a more flattering style for those of us who are busty). If stripes are in your wheelhouse, don’t let this one get away.
If you have spring/summer whites in your wardrobe, how are they holding up? I’ve been hanging onto the same pair of white jeans for the last few years, but I think it’s time to replace them.
What about your tees?
I find a white tee to be one of the trickiest wardrobe pieces to get right. If you go for opacity, you often sacrifice softness and visa versa. It’s also tough to find one that isn’t cut straight up and down. I have a few-seasons-old version of this tee which is as close as I’ve come to finding the perfect one. It’s held up well, too. Here’s a budget-friendlier option. (I haven’t tried that style in white, so can’t advise regarding the sheerness.)
One of the reasons I have white on the brain is this:
It’s from Raf Simon’s first collection for Calvin Klein (Fall 2017) and I’m enchanted with this color combo. (White and camel with a bright yellow accent.) I am determined to build myself an outfit using this mix.
And speaking of Fall collections, under the heading of “Shut Up And Take My Money…”
I am going to be stalking this cardigan. Stalking, I tell you.
And maybe this gold velvet jacket while I’m at it…
Are you making any wardrobe updates for spring?
