Do you remember in the movie Miss Congeniality where Miss Rhode Island is asked to describe her perfect day? Her answer: “April 25, because all you need is a light jacket.” It was pageant perfection, and she was right. Perfect fashion days are when you can stroll the streets in a light jacket, jeans and the comfiest pair of ballet flats. With temperatures rising, it’s time to prep your wardrobe for Spring with these closet staples you need in your closet:
1. Light Sweaters
Banana Republic is my go-to place for sweaters because you’re sure to find whichever color you’re looking for in whatever weight you’re looking for. Chunky knit? Check. Lightweight? They have that too. With Spring right around the corner, I picked up a few of their Merino Wool lightweight sweaters and they have been absolutely perfect for this week’s 60-something degree weather.
2. Perfect Trench Coat
I for one could not be more excited to ditch my down coat this week and say hello to my light jackets. A trench coat is the perfect in-between weight that keeps you warm but stylish.
3. Ballerina Flats
During the spring time, it can be tough to decide which footwear to rock. It’s a little to warm for boots, but a little too chilly for something open-toe. Enter ballet flats! This pair is so comfy and they match with everything, so I’ve been wearing them on repeat.
4. Comfy Denim
OK let’s be honest, denim is an all-year-round kind of staple. But since they’re perfect for pairing with ballet flats, I had to include it on my list.
5. Staple Sunnies
Spring means sunny days, so it’s only fitting that the perfect pair of glasses should make it on your Spring must-buy list.
