Trending Now: Buh Bye, Winter — I'm Making Sure I Have These Spring Style Essentials In My Closet RN

It’s that wonderful point in the semester again where everyone’s preparing themselves for the much-needed season of Spring. This time off can be taken to relax and rejuvenate, catch up on revamping your wardrobe for warmer weather, or if you’re one of the lucky ones, travel somewhere extra warm. TBH, I can't believe it's already Spring. Like, thank god, because I'm cold and over it, but my closet is most definitely not up to speed. 

If you're in need of a quick few items to 'Add To Cart' before the weather really starts to heat up, I've got your back. Here are a few members of Her Campus’s InfluenceHer Collective wearing ten of our warm weather essentials:

1. Off-the-shoulder tops

Let your shoulders breathe in this flirty fit. We are loving this bright look and the tropical vibes it’s giving us.

2. Oversized shades



Best advice I’ve ever received?: Don’t believe you have to be like anybody to be be somebody!

Cool sunnies are a must for every beachy vacation. When it comes to shades I believe the bigger the better! They stylishly protect your eyes all while hiding any mascara smears that are bound to happen in the heated temps.

3. Distressed white shorts

Stay away from wearing the predictable frayed jean shorts this break and go for a white pair. They will perfectly match every top and shoe combo you own.

4. Straw sun hats



whenever I see other posts from the slow fashion community I can’t help but wish my home were decorated like a Pinterest board (but it’s tiny and I don’t even have a spare white wall or full length mirror for #ootd photos) and that I had a carefully curated wardrobe of linens with a neutral palette (but I love color too much!!). I sometimes feel like I don’t fit into this space - like I don’t wear neutrals enough or I don’t rock shapeless linen dresses enough or wide-legged trousers enough. but...slow fashion doesn’t have to all look the same. the point of fashion is to be a form of expression and creativity and for some folks that’s capsule wardrobes and for me it’s lots of colors and prints and whatever I’m feeling at the moment. I’m still figuring out my style and I think it’s kind of all over the place rn (just like my life RIP) but if you’re here tysm for following along and being supportive and ily all! 💓💓💓

A  sun hat like this is the perfect last-minute accessory to throw on and look beach photoshoot ready. Look for one that has a fun brim to add more shape to your fit.

5. Bamboo bags

Nothing will put you more in a tropical mood than carrying around a purse made of bamboo. It’s a complete statement piece that will have everyone asking, “Where’d you get that?”

6. Polka dot dresses

This is the perfect OOTD inspo for when you're going to brunch with your fam or besties.

7. Hair scarves

Okay, this has to be the cutest hair accessory of 2019! The simple scarf adds a fun pop of color to every look. Check out all the different ways to rock this trend here.

8. Star patterns

Incorporating stars into your look is a guaranteed way to look like the trendiest person on the boardwalk. I’m obsessed with how these lace-up shorts pull off the celestial pattern.  

9. Two-piece sets

Two-piece sets are a must-have for every warm weather vacation! They’re oh so beachy and require minimal effort to look amazing.

10. Denim on denim

I love a denim jacket for every occasion. Pair yours with some cut off jean shorts and look casually cool.
