As springtime approaches, we are putting down our heavy jackets and putting on lighter layers. Here are some clothing items that you’ll want in your closet. 

Oversized Blazer 

A bold fashion statement that can be dressed up or down wherever you go. This piece is great to pair with denim jeans or some nice pants. Throw on some loafers or sneakers for the ultimate look. 

Trench Coat 

With so many variations of this timeless staple piece, the trench coat can be paired with anything to make your outfits pop. Try a regular trench coat for the daytime, and for an evening out in the town, wear a leather trench coat to really up the look. 

Cargo Pants 

A street-wear style that has taken over the fashion world by storm. These pants can be worn with a nice tank top or a long sleeve tee. Pair it with some boots and black sunglasses to pull the look together. 

Chunky Knit Tops 

A nice seasonal layer that will keep you warm during those cooler days that you can wear anywhere. Try a red top for a pop of color. Style them with relaxed jeans, flared pants, or a mini skirt. 

Ribbed White Tee 

Whether it’s basic, has a logo, is one-sided, or cropped, this top is the number one essential that should be in your closet this spring. This piece can be worn with anything. That’s what makes it number one!
